The Question is:
I installed UCX 5.4 and ECO1 on my VMS 7.3-1 system and got it to work. Then,
having nothing better to do, decided to upgrade VMS to 7.3-2. Upgrade seems
to go smoothly to completion but, when booting generates errors in accessing
page, swap, errorlog a
nd sysdump files as well as mounting system disk by getting error code
00000144. The only thing different was that I had converted the system disk
to ods-5 during the 7.3-1 install, which worked fine under 7.3-1. What
would be the ebst remedy for this
The Answer is :
Please contact the support center directly, as additional context
around the bootstrap error messages will be of interest.
The OpenVMS Wizard will assume the documented upgrade procedure
was used, and the system was bootstrapped from the distribution
medium and the system disk was upgraded from the menu system.
The upgrade particularly assumes there are page and swapfiles
on the system disk during the upgrade, though these can be
moved off the system disk -- the upgrade documentation has
some details on the upgrade requirements.
As for the specific error:
$ exit %x144
%SYSTEM-F-IVDEVNAM, invalid device name
The upgrade is expected to perform an AUTOGEN as part of the
processing, and this is generally where such files are
created or sized.
If you wish to manually attempt to create these files, please
see the SYS$UPDATE:SWAPFILES.COM command procedure, or other
similar approach. Alternatively, check for PAGEFILE,
SWAPFILE, and DUMPFILE settings in MODPARAMS.DAT (settings
of which can force a particular file size or no file changes
at all) and (re)run AUTOGEN.
