The Question is:
We run VMS on a MicrVax 3100 with 3 Disks. One is the systems disk and the
other 2 are data disks. Unfortunately two of the data files are on the System
disk which has limited free blocks (675336) The two other Disks have very
large free blocks 4026430 a
nd 1005585 respetively.
Is there an easy way of making the data on the system disk go to one of the
The Answer is :
Please review your application product documentation or contact your
application vendor; as a general rule, it is trivially easy to copy
files from one disk to another, but -- without details of the software
application(s) involved -- it is not feasible for the OpenVMS Wizard to
indicate how the application(s) might locate the data once the files
have been moved. (The command to relocate data files is typically
COPY.) The software product documentation for the package(s) that
reference these data files will be of interest, of course, as will
contact the vendor support organization if the product documentation
does not indicate the particular procedure(s) involved in relocating
the files and (re)configuring the application(s).
The other obvious option, of course, is to move to a larger system disk.
