VPM$SERVER and Password Security Alarms?

» close window

The Question is:

We have a homogenous cluster and the one node keeps trying to startup
 VPM$Server on the other node how can I stop this from happening.
Security alarm (SECURITY) and security audit (SECURITY) on SHARE2, system id:
Auditable event:          Network login failure
Event time:                9-AUG-2004 16:09:49.50
PID:                      24608FE8
Process name:             VPM_8230
Username:                 VPM$SERVER
Remote nodename:          TFD1
Remote node id:           1065 (1.41)
Remote username:          Y004042P
Status:                   %LOGIN-F-DISUSER, account is disabled

The Answer is :

  This is the remote portion of MONITOR utility, and specifically
  the MONITOR CLUSTER mechanism.
  There is a mechanism to start the IP VPM receiver in the
  site-specific system startup template, but the OpenVMS Wizard
  will assume this configuration is using DECnet Phase IV.
  Please ensure you haved a consistent set of passwords, and that
  the password for VPM matches that in the DECnet Phase IV database.
