The Question is:
I have a DEC 3000 running OpenVMS 7.0. We lose the connection to our console
when the system finishes booting. When I do a
$show dev opa0:/fu
I see the following...
show dev opa0:/fu
Terminal OPA0:, device type unknown, is online, enabled as operator terminal,
record-oriented device, carriage control.
Error count 0 Operations completed 96
Owner process "" Owner UIC [1,4]
Owner process ID 00000083 Dev Prot S:RWPL,O:RWPL,G,W
Reference count 1 Default buffer size 80
NOTE that opa0: is owned by process id 83, however there is NO PROCESS with
this ID running on the system. What is going on here? How can I fix this?
The Answer is :
This is probably a known problem in this release of OpenVMS Alpha,
there were several similar console problems during that timeframe.
The OpenVMS Wizard strongly encourages an upgrade to a more recent
release, and preferably to a release with Current Version Support
or with Prior Version Support.
