Hi,

While trying to run Tru64 V5.1B on FreeAXP (host Windows XP SP3), frequent crash / freeze occurs.

FreeAXP version - 2.0.0.377
Host OS - WinXP SP3 v.3311
Guest OS - OSF1 AXPES40 V5.1 2650 alpha

Configuration:
Memory - 128 MB
Disks -
- SYSDISK - 2 GB RZ73
- DATADISK - 8 GB RZ40L
- SWAPDISK - 1 GB RZ57

Using dedicated physical NIC and card type DE435.

The crashes are random - kernel fault - invalid memory address - or just a console freeze.

Its not predictable and can happen anytime. Today the crash happened twice: first when nothing was going on. Second time a FTP file transfer was in progress. Earlier we have seen the crash while there were some X Windows were open (thru Reflection X) but idle anyways.

Twice the dsk0 (root file system) was corrupted and we had to re-install Tru64. Now I am keeping a backup of all the disk images.

Any help, suggestions will be much appreciated.

Regards, Abhijit.

Hi,

Could you post the crash details please ?

- captured from the console immediately after the panic... or
- captured in /var/adm/messages after the next Tru64 boot ... or
- captured in /var/adm/crash/crash-data.X (if it saved ok) after the next Tru64 boot ...

regards,
John M

Also, you might try using a De500 instead of the De435. It probably won't make any difference, but just in case .... smiley

John,

1) I did not capture the console messages - so I will post that after next crash - whenever that is.

2) Some parts of the /var/adm/messages:

You can see multiple boots happening - each one after a crash.

3) There no file under /var/adm/crash - will check again once there a crash again.

Thanks,

OK - Thanks for that update.
Since there is nothing under /var/adm/crash there will be no crash detail in /var/adm/messages either. An empty crash directory means that either there was a problem writing/reading the crash to/from the swap device, or that it wasn't a 'normal' Tru64 Panic ... So the console capture will be the only way forward. For that, please log the /dev/console tty output, or copy/paste it once(if) the next crash occurs.

John M

Hi,

The system has not crashed since yesterday. But today I got a new problem and this time I captured the console output - same thing is repeated in the /var/adm/messages too.

In the middle of a file transfer (FTP), the data disk (dsk1) became inaccessible.

Machine was alive - but /data (mount point for dsk1h) was not accessible.

ADVFS panic

Hi,

You have had an AdvFS domain panic.

- invalid frag group
- write error or internal inconsistency (in/with the frag group metadata)
- and an AdvFS I/O error (read) of block 10930176 within dsk1h.

The domain is then 'offlined' and inaccessible.

This would normally be attributed to a storage problem - a disk error, or data inconsistency on disk perhaps introduced by previous problems.

The AdvFS domain will only become available again after a reboot.

However you should consider re-creating the volume, as the problem will likely re-occur when the same block or its neighbours is accessed again. Alternatively, you may try to repair the damaged section(s) with fixfdmn(8), but given the I/O error noted earlier, it may not be completely sucessful.

As you observe, this is not the same issue as described in your original post.

regards,
John M

Also, you may wish to examine the Tru64 binary error log (in /var/adm/) using dia (DECevent) or uerf - and check if there is any additional disk error information visble for the time of the AdvFS error.

And check the main FreeAXP log (not the PuTTY /dev/console log), and see if it reports anything 'odd' for the disk unit used by dsk1.

Hi,

Now I got a crash again moments after running SQLPlus (we installed Oracle 8.1.7 client - same version that is already running on a physical ES40).

When I ran the program from a normal (not 'root'smiley user account and gave random username/password, it gave some errors and came out (obviously). About 5 seconds later I got this OS crash. So, I think it did not happen due to SQLPlus.

BTW: I have already changed the network card type to DE500 (21140).

Crash dump files saved in /var/adm/crash.

I need to know why this is unstable. If its only my instance that's behaving like this, what do I need to do get a stable system using FreeAXP.

Thanks,
Abhijit.

I can confirm that SQLPlus was not involved in the crash I reported in the previous post. I repeated the same steps again (wrong username/password) after reboot and there was no crash yet. Also, I am able to communicate to a DB running in another machine through SQLPlus.

After further testing and diagnosis, it appears that this issue only occurs under the 32-bit release of FreeAXP. The 64-bit version of FreeAXP and the commercial version 'Avanti' do not have the problem. Thus a 'workaround' is to run the emulator on a 64-bit Windows platform, which will also give improved performance in comparison to a 32-bit host.

Hi,

After moving to a 64 bit host (Win7) and latest version of FreeAXP the system is stable and trouble free. Thanks John, Camiel and Bruce for the prompt support.

Regards,
Abhijit.

HPE only makes the most current version of OpenVMS Alpha / IA64 /VAX available to hobbyists. When I had access to the Alliance 1 program it was the same. No public downloads are allowed by HPE.

lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?

It would be nice to be able to buy the lastest hardcopy full OpenVMS docset at a very reduced price through the Hobbyist program. smiley
