DEFINE and I/O Redirection?

» close window

The Question is:

When running 'RSH'(TCPIP Services) from a VT session in a DCL command
 procedure, we lose the sys$output (screen output) after executing a program
 which is a 'blackbox' to us. We assume it redirects sys$output somewhere else.
 After the 'black box' program
completes, we cannot redirect output back to the screen. 'Deassign sys$output'
 does not work since it is running remotely on another machine. We CAN redirect
 to file on the remote machine. If that can be done, maybe there is a way to
 redirect back to scre
Any way to send output back to screen after losing it on a remote call ?

The Answer is :

  Please contact the support center, as details of the commands and
  the procedures and the environment involved will be of interest.
  You could potentially use DEFINE or DEFINE/USER within the command
  procedure immediately after the troublesome application, but various
  applications that perform this can be quite problematic.
