The Question is:

OpenVMS 6.2 1H3
Getting an RMS error rc=99564
What does this mean?

The Answer is :

$ exit 99564
%RMS-F-DUP, duplicate key detected (DUP not set)
$ help/message/fac=rms dup
 DUP,  duplicate key detected (DUP not set)
  Facility:     RMS, OpenVMS Record Management Services
  Explanation:  An RMS $PUT or $UPDATE operation specified a record that
                contains one or more key values that duplicate key values
                in other records stored in the file, and the key does not have
                the DUPLICATES ALLOWED attribute.
  User Action:  Either reorganize the file and specify that duplicate keys are
                allowed, or modify the source program to detect and respond to
                the condition.
