There are a number of general sorts of issues that can interfere with the running of a variety of PMDF components; such issues include general syntax errors in a PMDF configuration, or license problems, or disk/quota problems leading to trouble writing files. The following sections describe some of the more common general error messages.
Note that the PMDF TEST/REWRITE utility will give warnings of many such common issues and with more detailed error messages than some other components of PMDF can display. So PMDF TEST/REWRITE can be a useful diagnostic tool: see if it is getting an error and if so, what.
Specific PMDF components can also issue other error messages, specific to that component. So when you an encounter an error not described below, see also the documentation on the PMDF component in question.
