Error 107 ProvideX 7.71 on SCO 6D2018
« on: March 06, 2020, 02:34:28 PM »
This is my first post to this forum.

I have a customer running ProvideX (Ver:7.71/UNIX-SCO) on SCO 6 Definitive 2018.
The OS has >2GB files enabled and there is a file that is used daily that is over 4GB.
Last night while running a price update an error 107 occurred on a file that is near 2GB.
Both files are EFF files.
Is there a way to find out if a ProvideX 7.71 file can go beyond 2GB?

TIA,
Dan Kaib

ProvideX 7.71 for SCO6 was released a very long time ago and at the time there were some issues with EFF files handling large updates.

Since ProvideX 7.71 is no longer supported (nor do we support SCO) we would suggest you upgrade to PxPlus and probably transition to something like Redhat Linux (or Centos, Oracle Linux) or Debian (Ubuntu). 

The transition to PxPlus will allow you to have files (both VLR and EFF) > 2GB while switching to Linux will likely provide you a faster platform with more options for future development.

As for your question about ProvideX supporting files > 2GB, you indicated that you had a 4GB file already which indicates it does.

The customer is not in a position to get off of SCO6.

Is there something in the FID that indicates if a file can expand to larger than 2GB?

What else may cause an error 107?

Is there a way to resolve the error 107?

Is there a version of ProvideX above 7.71 available for sale that may resolve the EFF issue?

Thanks,
Dan Kaib

Regarding your questions:

  • If the FID indicates its an EFF file then it can grow beyond beyond 2GB based on the block size used as described in Enhanced File Format section of https://manual.pvxplus.com/page/directives/keyed.htm
  • There have been a number of corrections since the release of 7.71, any one of which may have resolved the error 107 you received -- however we do not support ProvideX anymore.
  • Without knowing the cause of the 107 we would not be able to suggest how to correct/avoid it
  • You could try a later version of the ProvideX executable found in our archives.
    Note: You can only extract and use the ProvideX executable file from these and not the full install if you have a v7 license. Newer versions of the ProvideX will run with older licenses in order to provide software corrections.

Lastly, you might try converting to a VLR file with larger block sizes to see if the file fits in under 2GB.  This might allow you to continue to run for a while however long term you need to know that we don't support systems running on SCO.
