Managing ERRLOG.SYS Error Log?

» close window

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:
  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.
