The Question is:
Our Alpha cluster shutdown for a blackout.
When they reboot one of them looses its
logical names. Why?
The Answer is :
Summoning the vast resources of the Ethernet that surround the OpenVMS
Wizard, and utilitizing the Wizard's staff and a puff of greasy orange
smoke, the OpenVMS Wizard will guess at the particular cause of this.
Please review your system startup for errors, and potentially reboot and
monitor messages produced during the startup. Based solely on what was
provided, the most likely cause involve an incomplete or erroneous version
of SYS$STARTUP:SYSTARTUP_VMS.COM or SYS$STARTUP:SYLOGICALS.COM. Either
the logical name definitions were not included in the file, or the file
itself exits (due to error and lack of SET NOON) or due to an explicit
EXIT before the logical name(s) are defined. Also review the cluster
configuration for copies of the startup files stored in SYS$SPECIFIC and
in SYS$COMMON -- the latter area is most common, and files left in
SYS$SPECIFIC on the particular node can override the contents of the
files stored in SYS$COMMON.
