MACHINECHK, Machine check while in kernel mode
What is a possible cause of this?
One of my ALPHAs crashed on me. I was 500 km away, logged in remotely.
It came back up automatically, after just the normal reboot time; the
TCPIP cluster alias failed over to a VAX in the cluster and so I could
reconnect right away. (Nice to see that something I have never tested
live---a hard crash like this, with automatic restart of all software I
want running, TCPIP failover etc---actually works as planned!)
This is a 255/233 running 7.2-1, soon to be upgraded. (Before I do the
upgrade, I want to bring a third voting member into the cluster to
eliminate downtime (and learn some new things), thus the other thread on
DSSI allocation classes.)
The machine has been running almost continuously for over 6 years; I
think this is the first "internal" crash I've had (as opposed to reboots
caused by power failures etc).
The machine is back to normal now.
Another question: with the cluster alias pointing to the ALPHA, FTP,
both normal and anonymous, works fine. With it pointing to the VAX,
normal FTP works fine, but anonymous doesn't. The SYSUAF is not on the
system disk; a logical points to it on both systems. (Presumably, this
has nothing to do with the cluster alias, but is some difference between
the machines, which I just noticed when the cluster alias shifted from
ALPHA to VAX.)
%RMS-E-PRV, insufficient privilege or file protection violation
The account itself, file protections etc seem OK. They ARE the same as
when the login goes via the ALPHA.
The LOGIN.COM DOES get executed, and the login gets recorded (last login
in AUTHORIZE, for example).
At the other end, I get:
331 Guest login OK, send ident as password.
530 Login incorrect.
%TCPIP-E-FTP_LOGREJ, login request rejected
425 Session is disconnected.
