1820-037 error when trying to change print queues in smitty
ENV: AIX 4.2.1
PROBLEM: The customer is trying to change the characterics of a print
queue he is seeing the following error:
1820-037, An internal error or system error has occurred.
See the log file for further information
*ACTION TAKEN: Looked up the error 1820-037 it relates to several
˙While using the System Management Interface Tool (SMIT), the system
ran out of paging space.
˙The size of a user's DATA segment was set too low when the new user
was created. While running an application from SMIT, the DATA segment
˙You attempted to load too many optional software products or updates
at once. None of this seemed to apply so after wasting a lot of time
I vi'ed the smit.log vi the smit.log and find this IS NOT the error.
There are 2 errors:
error 1800-026, odm_get_list failed
error 1800-073,odm error number 5925
This appears to be a problem with smitty displaying the proper error
since this is not the only machine with this problem.
look and see if all files are zeroed out, they are.
cp /usr/lib/objrepos/sm_* .
look and see if files now have size
Now try smit
no additional smit screens found
Create the following script:
for file in `ls`
QNAME=`echo $file | cut -d':' -f1`
DEVICE=`echo $file| cut -d':' -f2`
chvirprt -q $QNAME -d $DEVICE
Once we ran the script, we are working.
