The Question is:
I am not able to change the device protection of any magnetic tape station
according to the System Manager Essentials Manual, page 7-6 with
e.g. SET SEC/CLASS=DEVICE $2$MKC500: /PROT=W:RWC
on the SYSTEM account with full privileges.
All I get is a
%SET-F-SYNTAX, error parsing 'W:RWC'
-LIB-F-SYNTAXERR, string syntax error detected by LIB$TPARSE.
VMS Cluster with two nodes running OpenVMS V7.1-2
The Answer is :
Thank you for reporting this error -- this has been replicated
with current documentation and with OpenVMS Alpha V7.3-1.
In the interim, please use:
SET SECURITY/CLASS=DEVICE $2$mkc500: /PROTECTION=(W:RW)
Experimentation indicates the request for control access is the
trigger for the parsing error.
