The PMDF Process Symbiont will also define a DECnet task object for notification by a remote Message Router to PMDF-MR on the local node. The DECnet object is a TASK object (therefore object number 0) with a task name of PMDF_MR_NTFY. The object is created automatically by the Process Symbiont as long as DECnet was running before the first Process Symbiont queue was started.
As with local notification, the definition of the PMDF-MR mailbox by MRMAN on the remote Message Router should include /NOTIFY=PMDF_MR_NOTIFY. The PMDF_MR_NOTIFY logical name will have to be defined on the remote node. If there is only a single PMDF-MR mailbox on the remote Message Router, a single logical name can be used:
$ DEFINE/SYSTEM PMDF_MR_NOTIFY "node::""TASK=PMDF_MR_NTFY"""
nodeis the DECnet node name of the system running PMDF-MR.
220.127.116.11 Notification by a Remote Message Router Cluster
When the remote Message Router is actually a remote Message Router
cluster, you will need to define a PMDF_MR_NOTIFY logical as described
above in Section 40.6.2 on each node in the remote Message Router
The Process Symbiont and PMDF-MR will recognize the incoming notifications from the remote Message Router cluster nodes by recognizing the DECnet name of the node making the notification. Thus for this case it is important to:
