|Communications Access Methods for SAS/CONNECT and SAS/SHARE Software|
Various errors may occur when you initially try to establish a connection over a network with the DECnet access method. Many of these problems are related to the network. SAS/CONNECT indicates when errors of this nature occur by presenting a general message with the specific return code for the error. The form of the message is
ERROR: Network request failed (rc 0xnn)
where nn is a nonzero return code that indicates the specific problem.
The following section explains the most common failures in establishing DECnet communications.
ERROR: Network request failed (rc 0x03)...
The SAS$CONN file is not defined on the remote host. This file is necessary to invoke the remote SAS session. Ensure that the file exists and is properly defined to NCP or that it exists in the remote login directory.
ERROR: Network request failed (rc 0x10)...
The host name that you specified as the value for the REMOTE= option is invalid. Ask your systems personnel for valid names at your site.
ERROR: Network request failed (rc 0x13)...
Permission to access the remote host was denied. Verify that you specified a valid userid and password for the remote system.
ERROR: Network request failed (rc 0x50)... ERROR: Network request failed (rc 0x51)...
Your network is down or cannot be reached. Contact your systems personnel.
ERROR: Network request failed (rc 0x64)... ERROR: Network request failed (rc 0x65)...
Your remote host is down or cannot be reached. Contact your systems personnel.
ERROR: Network request failed (rc 0x24) - no privilege for attempted operation.
Permission to perform the requested operation was denied. Verify that you have the access privileges assigned correctly on your system.
ERROR: Network request failed (rc 0xF4) - network partner exited.
When trying to establish a session with a remote VMS system, this message appears if the remote SAS session cannot create a WORK directory.
To resolve this error, change the SET DEF DISK statement in the SAS$CONN.COM file to a valid directory. This statement can be removed completely, and the remote SAS session will create a work directory under the directory it is being executed from. This statement should only be used if the user needs the work directory created in a different location.
ERROR: Network request failed. ERROR: Remote SIGNON to nodename cancelled.
This error occurs if the remote node is busy or the login command files are long. In either case, the remote node does not respond in time, and the local node times out.
To increase the time that is needed before a connection request times out on the local node, increase the NCP parameter EXECUTOR OUTGOING TIMER. To increase the time needed before a connection request times out on the remote node, increase the NCP parameter EXECUTOR INCOMING TIMER.
The error message is
ERROR: Network request failed (rc 0x3C) - Error number 0x3C00 occurred. ERROR: Remote SIGNON to nodename cancelled.
If you cannot resolve a problem from the explanations given here, contact SAS Technical Support for assistance.
These messages may be issued by the DECnet access method when you attempt to connect to a server with a PROC OPERATE statement or the REMOTE engine (with a LIBNAME statement).
Network request failed (rc 0x4D) - Error number 0x4D27 occurred
The server that was specified by the SERVER= option is not running on the specified node, or the remote node timed out.
Network request failed (rc 0x31) - Error number 0x3100 occurred.
A two-level server name was used and the node that was specified is not known to the user's node. Make sure the node name is spelled correctly and examine the DECnet database.
