The Question is:
I am currently in a directory on VMSSRV$DKB500, which is an ODS5 disk.
I am logged on as SYSTEM.
If i enter the command "sho dev d", I see (amongst other output):
Device Device Error Free Trans Mnt
Name Status Count blocks Count Cnt
VMSSRV$DKB500: Mounted 0 5768580 1 1
so I am clearly mounted on the disk, yet when i try and install the Compaq
Secure Web Server (tomcat), PCSI tells me it cannot locate VMSSRV$DKB500.
help, and tia.
The Answer is :
See the PRODUCT commands, and specifically PRODUCT REGISTER.
Also please see the OpenVMS FAQ section on changing the node name,
as an incorrect node name change can cause related problems.
$ HELP/MESSAGE INVSPIDST1
INVSPIDST1, destination device is not mounted or does not have an
associated logical volume name
Facility: PCSI, POLYCENTER Software Installation Utility
Explanation: The POLYCENTER Software Installation utility uses the logical
volume name associated with a mounted device to record the
destination device of an installed product in the product
database. When a device is mounted, the MOUNT utility assigns
a logical name to the device. By default, the equivalence
string of this logical name is of the form DISK$volume-name,
but you can specify any string as an optional parameter on the
MOUNT command. The destination device you specified for the
PRODUCT command using either the /DESTINATION qualifier or the
logical name PCSI$DESTINATION refers to a device that either
is not mounted or does not have an associated logical volume
User Action: If the device is not mounted, mount it and reenter the
command. If the device is mounted, dismount it and remount it
to recreate the logical volume name. You can view the logical
volume name for a mounted device by entering the following DCL
WRITE SYS$OUTPUT F$GETDVI("device-name","LOGVOLNAM")
