The Question is:
How can I reopen the system error log ERRLOG.SYS as it seems to be corrupted
and I can't use ANA/ERR
The Answer is :
The OpenVMS System Manager's documentation on Using the Error Formatter
and Maintaining Error Log Files discusses renaming the error log file
on a periodic basis, and a variation of that will work here. Simply
rename the file using a DCL command such as the following:
RENAME ERRLOG.SYS ERRLOG.OLD
The error logger will then detect there is lo ERRLOG.SYS file, and
will automatically create a new version of the file.
Please ensure you have the mandatory ECO kits for the particular OpenVMS
release installed, and also please seriously consider an OpenVMS upgrade
from this 1993-vintage OpenVMS VAX V5.5-2H4 release.
