The UUCP message return job must be started manually. Log in to the
account under which this job should run (the account must have access
to both the PMDF and UUCP queue and log directories) and execute the
PMDF_COM:return_vn.com command file from the terminal.
This action should run the
return_uucp program (it is a
good idea to make sure it is working properly) as well as submitting
the periodic batch job.
pmdf_submit_jobs.com procedure, described in the
section on post-installation tasks in the OpenVMS edition of the
PMDF Installation Guide, is capable of checking to make sure the periodic
Encompass UUCP message return job is running. To enable this feature,
make the following logical name definition:
$ DEFINE/SYSTEM PMDF_DO_RETURN_VN 1
pmdf_submit_jobs.comis run during system startup. A convenient way to ensure that this is logical is defined when your system reboots is to put the logical definition in a
PMDF_COM:pmdf_site_startup.comfile you provide; the use of such a file for site specific definitions is adiscussed in the PMDF Installation Guide, OpenVMS Edition.
