The Question is:
I have three nodes and the one node running 7.2
can send mail to the vax 6.1 node prefixing the node name to the username but
cannot send mail to the Alpha node. The vax 6.1 and alpha node node can send
mail to all nodes using the node name. I checked the DECNET MAIL Object on
each node and DECNET EXEC
UTOR CHARACTERISTICS and they match for all three nodes. The UAF entry for the
Mail account looks OK. Why does this fail only for the one node trying to
create a link to the Alpha?
The Answer is :
The username and password specified in the NCP database (assuming
DECnet Phase IV) entry for the MAIL object does not match a valid
username and password pair in SYSUAF. This is on the target node
for the mail message.
If this is a cluster, check the documentation for the settings
of the MAIL$SYSTEM_FLAGS and for the prefered configuration of
shared files. See SYLOGICALS.TEMPLATE on OpenVMS V7.2 and later
for the list of shared files expected in clusters. (Also, if t
his is a cluster, the OpenVMS versions are spread far too far
to be supported.)
Please upgrade to more recent OpenVMS releases. As of this
writing, V7.3 is the current release.
