I noticed when I logged in today a file / info dump printed to the screen
but when I logged out and in again it was gone. Perhaps that's what you're
Understand that I did not write SYSLOGIN.COM or any of this configuration
... I would not have imagined someone would have a messed up SYSLOGIN.COM
to cause the issue you described. There may be another explanation.
I am trying to "take over" from where they guy that set this machine up
left off and learn how this particular server was set up and why. I want
to fix, but I also know System administration tends to reflect the
personality of the admin, people have reasons for things. I am making the
assumption that given this was a production system there must be some
reasons for things. Eventually I can try to improve.
When I log in using Evan's account, I can get in but I have a disk quota
exceeded error when I try to generate an email message.
To: SMTP%"evan at snarc.net"
Subj: VAX USERN/PASS
%MAIL-E-OPENOUT, error opening
.TMP; as output
-RMS-E-CRE, ACP file create failed
-SYSTEM-F-EXDISKQUOTA, disk quota exceeded
Thanks for you help.
