Dump of file SYS$COMMON:[SYSUPD]VMS$SYSTEM_IMAGES.IDX on 22-AUG-2013 11:35:14.23
File ID (4468,12,0) End of file block 9 / Allocated 69
Record number 1 (00000001), 79 (004F) bytes, RFA(0004,0000,0014)
I have renamed the sys$sysroot:[sysupd]vms$system_images.idx file and performed:
$ mc sysman sys_loadable add idle sys$idle
%SYSMAN-I-NODERR, error returned from node TRITON
-SMI-E-IMGDUPINV, Image SYS$IDLE for product IDLE already in images table
This seems to have fixed the problem.
Thank you Jur. Your help pointed me in the correct direction. I had no idea that there was another copy of vms$system_images.idx in sys$sysroot:[sysupd]. It has been there a very long time (16 years according to its date) without us noticing it.
Thank you Volker for bringing Jur here to help me.
malmberg December 12 2017 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.
