Advanced Server and errgetsrv?

» close window

The Question is:

Advanced Server 7.3 on OpenVMS Alpha 7.3 is failing to start properly.  I
 receive the following error messages on startup at the console:
Server Exiting because of fatal error, see audit log and process log files for
Once the system fails if I attempt to run ADMIN/PATH the error:
%pwrk-e-errgetsrv, error getting server information for "PINE"
-LM-E-ERROR_BAD_NETPA, the network path cannot be located
As is described a previous
the tasks are missing.  Only diff is that I am starting a PDC not a BDC.
I have reviewed the logs and they are as follows:

The Answer is :

  The log file that would be of central interest here is the PWRK$LMSRV*.LOG
  file, and not the PWRK$LMBROW*.LOG file.
  Given that there is no specific log file error that can be referenced
  here, you will want to contact the Compaq Customer Support Center
  directly for assistance.
