1. 'Insufficient resources' on newly configured DNS server
This is a problem I've encountered twice. The first time I attempted to
resolve it by logging a call with Digital, but got nowhere so gave up as at
the time it affected only a test system. Now I have the problem on a live
We have a number of systems running DECnet Phase V. We use DNS rather than
a local namespace. Currently we have two DNS servers, neither of which
caused me any trouble when I originally configured them. Now I'm trying to
configure a third, but apparently I'm suffering from 'insufficient
resources'. Unfortunately the software declines to give me any clue about
which resource is insufficient, and those that I have thought of checking
seem fine to me.
So much for the overview of the problem, now for some specifics.
The new DNS server is on a VAX 4000-200 running DECnet/Plus V7.1 on OpenVMS
V7.1. I have successfully run DNS$CONFIGURE to configure the server in the
existing namespace. Its clearinghouse is in the root (.) directory, so the
root directory has been replicated to the new clearinghouse.
If I attempt to show the details of the new clearinghouse with the
following from any of the DNS server nodes
$ MCR DNS$CONTROL SHOW CLEARINGHOUSE .SUNBURY3_CH ALL
I get the error message
Error on entity: SUNBURY:.sunbury3_ch
%DNS-E-RESOURCEERROR, Insufficient resources to process request
If I attempt to show the details of either of the previous two
clearinghouses from any of the DNS server nodes (including the newly
configured one) all is well. I take this to indicate that it is the new
DNS server that is suffering from the resource error. Unfortunately
neither the DNS$SERVER.LOG nor the DNS$SERVER_ERROR.LOG files contain any
indication of any problem.
I've looked at the usage of various process (e.g. pagefile quota) quotas
for the new DNS server. There doesn't appear to be a problem. I've also
looked at things like paged and non-paged pool and these don't appear to
have a problem.
So I have three questions:
Has anyone encountered this problem and discovered the solution?
Does anyone know how I might be able to track down which resource is the
Does anyone believe the problem is caused by something other than the new
My views are my own and no-one else's.
