The Question is:

Digital TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS VAX Version V5.0 on a MicroVAX 3100-95
 running OpenVMS v7.1
TCPIP> sh service telnet /full
(relevant info.)
State: enabled
Limit: 50
Peak: 50
Wish to increase session limit to 60
TCPIP> set service telnet  /limit=60
%tcpip-e-invrecord, invalid information
Can you possibly advise as to how to achieve an increase?

The Answer is :

  This appears to be a known error involving the SYS$SYSTEM:TCPIP$SERVICE.DAT
  database and related processing.  The work-around for the error involves
  the following commands:
    1. delete the offending service database record; for TELNET, do:
    TCPIP> set noservice telnet
    2. modify the service database record attributes; for TELNET, do:
    TCPIP>  set service telnet /port=23 /flag=tcpip /inact=1 /limit=51 -
    _TCPIP> /socket=(keep,receive:3000,send:3000) -
    _TCPIP> /log=(activ,noaddr,deact,conn,error,login,logout,modify,reject)
    3. show service database record; for TELNET, do:
    TCPIP> show service telnet /full /permanent
  The OpenVMS Wizard would encourage an upgrade to a supported release of
  OpenVMS, and a supported release of TCP/IP Services.  (The versions of
  both products in use here are quite old -- this particular reported
  problem was resolved in 1999, for instance.)
