The Question is:
My question is this. When we try and do a config show time on a node we get a
strange error. Here is the command and the error:
$ mc sysman
SYSMAN> set env/node=(mcjomf,milc2)
%SYSMAN-I-ENV, current command environment:
Individual nodes: MCJOMF,MILC2
At least one node is not in local cluster
Username SYSTEM will be used on nonlocal nodes
SYSMAN> config sh time
System time on node MCJOMF: 11-NOV-2004 08:54:34.06
System time on node MILC2: 11-NOV-2004 08:54:40.20
%SYSMAN-I-NODERR, error returned from node MCJOMF
-SYSTEM-F-INVLOGIN, login information invalid at remote node.

files -- as referenced in SYLOGICALS.TEMPLATE on V7.2 and later
and as referenced in the FAQ -- are set up appropriately with
logical names if the files are not located in their default
positions within the system disk directory structure; ensure
all logical names for all relocated cluster authorization files
are set appropriately.
Also check for any SYSMAN logical names in the SYSMAN$NODE_TABLE
logical name table using SHOW LOGICAL /TAB=SYSMAN$NODE_TABLE; see
if there are any synonyms for the specified node that might cause
SYSMAN to access another node.
Please also move to a supported and more current OpenVMS Alpha release.
If you must operate on a release this old, please ensure you have
the most current applicable ECO kits and all mandatory ECO kits
installed. (The same recommendation holds for more current releases,
