need help with strange cluster problem

My hobbyist cluster consists of three nodes, each with one vote: GLADIA, 
DANEEL and ELIJAH.  GLADIA is an ALPHA, the other two nodes are VAXes.  
Almost all disks are shadow sets with members mounted two nodes.  All 
disks are MSCP served to all nodes, and all disks are mounted by all 
nodes.  SYSUAF.DAT etc are on the DISK$USER shadow set.  This disk is 
mounted by each node in SYLOGICALS.COM and logicals are defined to point 
to SYSUAF.DAT etc.

Returning after a few weeks holiday, during which no member rebooted and 
there were apparently no serious problems, I noticed that the member of 
DISK$USER on DANEEL was "Online" "ShadowSetMember".  I didn't try to 
MOUNT it again into the shadow set, since I had just rebooted GLADIA in 
order to bring it back up with just one member of the system-disk shadow 
set, since I planned to install 9 patches (leaving the disconnected 
member as a clean backup should something go wrong with the patches).  
When GLADIA came back up, it tried and failed to mount the "Online" 
member into DISK$USER.  I then waited for the shadow copy of DISK$SOFT 
to complete, since this is distributed across DANEEL and GLADIA, then I 
shut down DANEEL.

Note that I didn't install any patches on any machines since last June.  
In particular, I haven't yet installed the 9 patches I need to install 
on GLADIA.

From the console prompt, DANEEL could see its half of DISK$USER fine.  I 
rebooted, and apparently all went well: the member was added to the 
shadow set with a copy operation.  So far, so good.

I then went to sleep.

In the morning, I found the following situation: the member on DANEEL 
was still in the "ShadowCopying" state, but the member on ELIJAH was no 
longer in the state "ShadowSetMember", but rather "ShadowMergeMbr".  All 
other shadow sets look fine.  The copying was 76% complete (now 88%) and 
0% merged.

I then discovered that ELIJAH had spontaneously rebooted during the 
night, while I was sleeping.  ANALYZE shows "inconsistent shadowing 
state" as the reason.

That would explain things, but why did ELIJAH reboot?

DISK$USER had the member on DANEEL in the "ShadowCopying" state before 
the reboot of ELIJAH, which was of course correct.  It has it now after 
the reboot of ELIJAH as well.  Presumably that is correct and the shadow 
copy started again.

There are problems on node GLADIA, however, since DISK$USER is in
mount-verify timeout (there was no problem when I went to sleep).  Since 
SYSUAF.DAT etc are on this disk, lots of things are failing which need 
to access these files.

So, my plans are to wait until the shadow copy of DISK$USER is complete 
(not necessary, but since rebooting GLADIA will cause another shadow 
copy to start, and bandwidth (10BaseT) is low, I just want one shadow 
copy at a time) then reboot GLADIA.

The console on GLADIA tells me to run SYS$SYSTEM:IMGDMP_RIGHTS, but that 
fails since the necessary files can't be accessed!

So: missing disk on DANEEL apparently corrected OK.  Strange spontaneous 
reboot of ELIJAH.  Strange problem on GLADIA.  All unrelated?

Strange OS/2 Networking Problem

Need Help Urgently with Strange Problem
I am using Ahead Nero on a Win 2000 computer with Access 2000. I have a database we printed reports from that is sorted in a particular way. When I look at the report on the screen prior to burning a CD with Nero, the onscreen data matches the printed copy. After I burn the CD, and without doing ANYTHING to the database but open it back up, the fields not included in Sorting and Grouping change their order. The onscreen reports (which the client wants to see along with the printed copies) do not match the printouts and I have no idea how to bring them back, since the sort of those fields appears to be completely random. What's really bizarre is that the local copy is "messed up" the same way as the CD copy. Does anyone have any idea what's going on here? Has anyone else had this problem with Nero? Thanks in advance, Janet Aldrich Janet, I've not heard of this problem before, but you may want to 1) try out a different burning product; for instance, try Windows' integrated burning program; 2) make sure you have the latest version of Nero (www.ahead.de). If you are still getting the same problem when burning with a different burning utility, you'll at least know that it's got to do with either your burner or Windows itself. I can't claim to know much about Nero, but I do know that Access doesn't guarantee the sort order of unsorted fields. If there's a particular sort order you want to return, define it in your report,...

Need desperate help on a very strange problem!
Hello to everyone! I have the following problem: I realized a code to measure the speed of 2 encoders using the 2 counters of a pci 6010 daq board (one counter for each encoder). This code read 3600 pulses (one revolution) from each encoder and write the buffered periods of the two encoders to a measurement file. I connected encoder1 to PFI 1 (CTR0 Gate) and encoder2 to PFI 4 (CTR1 Gate) No signals are connected to CTR0 SRC and CTR1 SRC. In order to validate the complete system I connected only encoder1 to both PFI1 and PFI4, so that I'm sure that both counters get the same signals i...

Need your help on this strange loading problem ... Thanks
Hi all, I met with a strange problem. I have a script to load data from a text file into a table. On the first run, I hit with an error said that the number of columns mismatch.

It ensures every page in the help system has a link to every page that links to it.

Help, I need a VMS Alpha 8.2 OS kit
The reason I ask is that I appear to be stuck in a Catch-22 hell on getting a copy of VMS 8.2 for Alpha. Up until last April I was subscribed to the service that delivered VAX and Alpha Operating system binaries and separately subscribed to the layered products for Alpha. Since I no longer have any VAXen I cancelled that service and switched to a service that delivers Alpha VMS OS + Layered product binaries. Unfortunately it appears that for some unfathomable reason the VMS Alpha 8.2 kit was shipped in the new product offering in March but not until June in the old product offering. Since...

Need help! No classic OR OS 9, need old TCP info
Yikes! I encouraged my sister to buy Panther, and now that she's installed it, she discovered that she can't run Classic because her old system is 9.0.x. But wait...the plot thickens. For some reason, she can't boot in 9 anymore. When she tries, she gets the small "smiley face" toaster icon, and no progress beyond that (even after 5+ minutes). Tried zapping the PRAM, to no avail. Her dialup (yes, dialup) settings are trapped somewhere in OS 9, and she can't get to her old CPs via X, so she can't connect to download the upgrades to 9.2.2. What to do? Is ...

I have managed to develop a HID app working under Windows OS, but I'm having trouble with the Mac implementation. The Mac sees and reports the device correctly - an 'ioreg' listing shows that all the parameters are as expected. The only exception is the element list which seems to be huge and largely composed of element params which are a little odd, however, I've seen a similar list on the keyboard so I&...
