RDBPROD: RUJ File Not Found But It Exists

(Doc ID 1223454.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 05, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Rdb Server on OpenVMS - Version 7.0 and later
HP OpenVMS Itanium
HP OpenVMS Alpha


Attempting to access an Rdb database gives

%RDMS-F-TERMINATE, database recovery failed -- access to database denied by monitor

The bugcheck dump created by the failed recovery process shows that the RUJ was not found.

%RDMS-F-FILACCERR, error opening run-unit journal file SYS$SYSDEVICE:[RDM$RUJ]MF_PERSONNEL$0001A596313E.RUJ;1
-RMS-E-FNF, file not found

A directory command from DCL using the full filename also says file not found, but a directory command specifying the directory shows that the file is in the directory.


It is likely that a system crash occurred before this.
