I noticed that this is the case on the satellite discussed in another 
thread, but not on any of the other machines.  I don't recall ever 
setting it; maybe my own memory has a parity error.

I usually set mine to "VDC" and leave it.  My SYSTARTUP_VMS.COM has a purge
and rename to ;1 of SYS$SPECIFIC:[SYSEXE]STARTUP.LOG.  Set it and forget it
unless it's handy/needed.

From SYS$SYSTEM:STARTUP.COM :

$if f$locate("V",p2) .nes. f$length(p2) then stdrv$verify = stdrv$true
$if f$locate("D",p2) .nes. f$length(p2) then stdrv$log = stdrv$true
$if f$locate("C",p2) .nes. f$length(p2) then stdrv$verbose = stdrv$true
$if f$locate("P",p2) .nes. f$length(p2) then stdrv$comp_verify = stdrv$true

So if you include "D" in STARTUP_P2 the startup log file is created. What goes into the log file is determined by the other three options. "V" turns on verification of all startup command procedures and generates a lot of text.

I normally use "DC". That generates a small log file with all relevant (to me)information.

HTH,

Bart

You might have enabled this with the SYSMAN utility:

SYSMAN> startup set options/output=3Dfile

That won't modify MODPARAMS.DAT so you will lose the setting on your 
next AUTOGEN.

Ditto with the setting of "VDC" but I purge to 5 versions in a separate 
daily maintenance job so that in the event of finger trouble when 
modifying startup procedures, or hardware errors causing repeated 
starts, I have more diagnostic information to go at.

Phillip,

My preference on running systems is to use SYSMAN for short-term changes. F=
or permanent changes (e.g., I generally want unattended machines to log the=
 startup process to a file, rather than to an unwatched screen), I would pu=
t the change into MODPARAMS.DAT to ensure that the "policy" change propagat=
es through future operation of AUTOGEN.

Of course, if I am building/maintaining an OpenVMS Cluster, I prefer to mai=
ntain site/cluster-specific underlying MODPARAMS.DAT files as an underlying=
 base for site/cluster-generic parameter settings. I discussed this use of =
AGEN$INCLUDE in my 2011 OpenVMS Bootcamp presentation "Using OpenVMS Techno=
logies to Build an Agile Computing Base" (slides/audio available at: http:/=
/www.rlgsc.com/openvms-bootcamp/2011/agile-openvms.html)

Yeah, I mentioned that I alwasy set mine to "VDC".  I couldn't remember
which enabled the actual log.

The SYSMAN STARTUP commands are not the most intuitive...

Making `logging.basicConfig` log to *both* `sys.stderr` and `sys.stdout`?
Hi, I use python oftentimes to write automation scripts on Linux servers. And there's a big pattern in my scripts: - I *always* use `logging` instead of `print` statements. - I *always* create two stream handlers. One for `sys.stdout` with level `INFO` and one for `sys.stderr` with level `WARN` Well, the levels may variate occasionally, but that's only the rare exception. The reason I do this is simple: Most automation tasks are run via cron. With this setup, I can redirect `stdout` to `/dev/null` and still receive e-mails if things go wrong. And having two handlers gives me more ...

SYS$SPECIFIC and SYS$COMMON not enough?
Basically, the idea is that stuff specific to a given node will be in its SYS$SPECIFIC directory and stuff common to all nodes (satellites or not) booting from the same system disk will be in SYS$COMMON. A good idea as far as it goes, but does it go far enough? In particular, there are two additional categories, which I'll give the obvious names SYS$CLUSTER and SYS$WORLD. SYS$CLUSTER would include stuff common to all nodes in a cluster, i.e. would differ from SYS$COMMON if there is more than one system disk in the cluster. The obvious place for this stuff is somewhere which is not ...

STARTUP.LOG?
I have an ALPHA which hangs for a couple of minutes AFTER it joins the cluster. This is a 21164A CPU (actually, two of them) so the machine is quite fast. By the time it gets to SYLOGICALS.COM, a 4000/60 has already completed booting. Is there a way to get the startup sequence before SYLOGICALS.COM logged somewhere, preferably with SET PREFIX turned on, so I can see where and perhaps why it is hanging? During the hanging, no messages are written to the console, so I have no idea what it is doing. Other ALPHAs don't show this behaviour. The only thing I can thik of it to edit S...

SYS$STARTUP:MMOV$STARTUP.COM -- lacks something (priority)
And while I'm complaining about SYS$STARTUP:MMOV$SHUTDOWN.COM, I recently (at long last) figured out why I've been getting such choppy MPEG playback after system startup until I manually restart the MMOV$SERVER process. In SYS$STARTUP:MMOV$STARTUP.COM, the "RUN /DETACHED" command lacks a "/PRIORITY" qualifier, so if it's run from a typical batch queue (as it was on my system), the MMOV$SERVER process inherits a reduced process priority, resulting in poor performance. (And on an AlpSta 200 4/233, it needs all the performance advantages it can scrape toget...

Log into network, not a specific machine
I have two Macs working off an Airport Extreme Base Station (one running 10.3, the other 10.4).Each person in my family has an account on both machines. But if you do something on one machine, say create a document and put it on the desktop or add a bookmark to your browser, when you log into the other machine those items are not there. So I was wondering is there a way to create account where your stuff (desktop, Mail folders, etc.) are all the same independent of which particular machine you are on?
