LOGINOUT file currently locked? (FLK)

» close window

The Question is:

I have just installed Open-VMS on a VAX4200 and have configured it identically
 to a 3900 with
  Digital TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS VAX Version V4.2 - ECO 3
  on a VAX 4000-200 running OpenVMS V7.1
Telnet, nfs, rlogin are working fine. I can FTP from the 4200 to the 3900 ok,
 but when I FTP
from the 3900 to the 4200 I get the following errors on the 4200.

I have looked at all your recommendations and as far as I can determine all
 rights and permissions are exactly as the 3900.
the enable watch/class=all file does not give me anything more useful than the
 output ablove.
Where do I go from here?

The Answer is :

  Your message references OpenVMS on various VAX systems, but lists the
  platform as OpenVMS Alpha -- the OpenVMS Wizard will assume that this
  is an OpenVMS VAX system, not an OpenVMS Alpha system.   (But if this
  is an OpenVMS Alpha system, the use of OpenVMS Alpha V7.1-2 or V7.2-1
  is recommended, as is the use of TCP/IP Services V5.0A or later.)
  A file necessarily accessed by LOGINOUT is being held locked, and is
  preventing the operation from completing.  This could be the system
  authorization file, a log file, or otherwise.
  The (undocumented) SET WATCH/CLASS=class FILE provides information
  only on the XQP activity in the local process, and not to the XQP
  activity within the process that has invoked the LOGINOUT image.
  The output from SHOW DEVICE/FILE might be interesting, looking for
  applications that are holding SYSUAF.DAT, RIGHTSLIST.DAT or similar
  file open, and looking for applications or operations or configurations
  that would prevent a log file creation or an audit entry or other similar
  file operation from completing, or potentially by problems accessing the
  SYLOGIN or LOGIN.COM procedure.
