1 REPLY

Broadcasts a message to a terminal or terminals. See the qualifier descriptions for restrictions. Format REPLY [message-text] 2 Parameter message-text Specifies the text of the message. The text must be 1 to 511 characters. Enclose the text in quotation marks (" ") if it contains spaces, special characters, or lowercase characters. 2 Qualifiers /ABORT /ABORT=identification-number Sends a message to the user or magnetic tape file system corresponding to the unique identification number and cancels the request. /ALL Requires OPER (operator) privilege. Broadcasts a message to all terminals that are attached to the system or cluster. These terminals must be turned on and have broadcast-message reception enabled. The /ALL qualifier is incompatible with the /USERNAME and /TERMINAL qualifiers. /BELL Rings a bell at the terminal receiving a message when entered with the /ALL, the /TERMINAL, or the /USERNAME qualifier; two bells when entered with the /URGENT qualifier; and three bells when entered with the /SHUTDOWN qualifier. /BLANK_TAPE /BLANK_TAPE=identification-number Requires VOLPRO (volume protection) privilege. Sends a message to the magnetic tape file system indicated by the identification number to override the checking of volume label information. The volume label must be specified in the message-text parameter. The current terminal must be enabled as an operator terminal for TAPES. /DISABLE /DISABLE[=(keyword[,...])] Requires OPER (operator) privilege. Requires OPER and SECURITY privileges for security messages. If the operator communication manager (OPCOM) is running, restores to normal (that is, nonoperator) status the terminal at which the command is entered. The /DISABLE qualifier cannot be entered from a batch job. To restrict the types of messages displayed on an operator's terminal, specify one of the following keywords: CARDS Inhibits messages sent to the card readers. CENTRAL Inhibits messages sent to the central system operator. CLUSTER Inhibits messages from the connection manager pertaining to cluster state changes. DEVICES Inhibits messages pertaining to mounting disks. DISKS Inhibits messages pertaining to mounting and dismounting disk volumes. LICENSE Inhibits messages pertaining to software licenses. NETWORK Inhibits messages pertaining to networks; the keyword CENTRAL must also be specified to inhibit network messages. OPER1 to OPER12 Inhibits messages sent to operators identified as OPER1 to OPER12. PRINTER Inhibits messages pertaining to print requests. SECURITY Inhibits messages pertaining to security events; requires SECURITY privilege. TAPES Inhibits messages pertaining to mounting and dismounting tape volumes. When an operator logs out from a remote or a dial-in terminal, the operator terminal is automatically disabled. /ENABLE /ENABLE[=(keyword[,...])] Requires OPER (operator) privilege. Requires OPER and SECURITY privileges for security messages. Designates as an operator's terminal the terminal at which the REPLY command is entered, if OPCOM is running. The /ENABLE qualifier cannot be entered from a batch job. To enable the following types of messages displayed on an operator's terminal, specify one of the following keywords: CARDS Displays messages sent to the card readers. CENTRAL Displays messages sent to the central system operator. CLUSTER Displays messages from the connection manager pertaining to cluster state changes. DEVICES Displays messages pertaining to mounting disks. DISKS Displays messages pertaining to mounting and dismounting disk volumes. LICENSE Diplays messages pertaining to software licenses. NETWORK Displays messages pertaining to networks; the keyword CENTRAL must also be specified to inhibit network messages. OPER1 to OPER12 Displays messages sent to operators identified as OPER1 to OPER12. PRINTER Displays messages pertaining to print requests. SECURITY Allows messages pertaining to security events; requires SECURITY privilege. TAPES Allows messages pertaining to mounting and dismounting tape volumes. /INITIALIZE_TAPE /INITIALIZE_TAPE=identification-number Sends a message to the magnetic tape file system indicated by the identification number to initialize a magnetic tape volume. This qualifier can be used whenever the file system requests the mounting of a new volume. The system performs normal protection and expiration checks before initializing the volume. The current terminal must be enabled as an operator terminal for TAPES. If the tape drive cannot read the volume, the mount fails and an error message is returned. Use the /BLANK_TAPE qualifier to override the checking of information on a volume label. /LOG /LOG /NOLOG Requires OPER (operator) privilege. Closes the current operator's log file and opens a new one if OPCOM is running. The /NOLOG qualifier closes the current log file, but does not open a new log file. The current terminal must be enabled as an operator terminal. The operator can then examine the contents of the previous log file. /NODE /NODE[=(node-name[,...])] Sends a message to the local cluster node only. The optional parameter list allows you to specify which nodes will receive the message. Default sends messages to all cluster nodes. /NOTIFY /NOTIFY (default) /NONOTIFY Sends a message describing success back to the originating terminal. /PENDING /PENDING=identification-number Requires OPER privilege. Sends a message to the user specified by the identification number and prevents the user from entering other commands until the operator fulfills or aborts the request. The current terminal must be enabled as an operator terminal. /SHUTDOWN Sends a message beginning "SHUTDOWN..."; if used with the /BELL qualifier, rings three bells at terminals receiving the message. /STATUS Requires OPER (operator) privilege. Reports the current operator status and all outstanding user requests for the terminal from which this command was entered. The current terminal must be enabled as an operator terminal. /TEMPORARY Designates the terminal at which the command is entered to be an operator's terminal for the current interactive session only. This qualifier is meaningful only when used with the /ENABLE qualifier. /TERMINAL /TERMINAL=(terminal-name[,...]) Requires OPER (operator) privilege. Broadcasts the message to specified terminals, where the terminal-name parameter is the device name of the terminal. Incompatible with the /ALL and /USERNAME qualifiers. /TO /TO=identification-number Requires OPER (operator) privilege. Sends a message to the user or file system specified by the identification number and completes the request. The current terminal must be enabled as an operator terminal. Note that you can also use a variation of the REPLY/TO command in response to a MOUNT/ASSIST command where you redirect the mount operation to another device. Whenever you must substitute a device, load the user's volume on the alternate device and prepare the device for connection before entering the REPLY command. Use the following syntax: REPLY/TO=identification-number "SUBSTITUTE device-name" You can abbreviate the word SUBSTITUTE to S and can use uppercase or lowercase characters. After a space, use the remainder of the message-text space to name the substituted device. /URGENT Sends a message beginning "URGENT..."; if used with the /BELL qualifier, rings two bells at terminals receiving the message. /USERNAME /USERNAME[=(username[,...])] Requires OPER (operator) privilege. Broadcasts a message to all terminals at which users are logged in to the system (or OpenVMS Cluster), or only to the terminals of the specified users. Incompatible with the /ALL and /TERMINAL qualifiers. /WAIT Sends a message synchronously and then waits. The default is to send a message to OPCOM, which does the actual I/O. On a cluster, the message is sent to the local node. 2 Examples 1.$ REPLY/ALL/BELL "SYSTEM GOING DOWN FOR BACK-UP. PLEASE LOG OFF." The REPLY command in this example broadcasts a message to all terminals on the system. When the message appears at the user's terminal, it is prefixed with the terminal name, the user name of the sender, and (when DECnet for OpenVMS is installed) the node name. The bell sounds at the terminal as the message is displayed. 2.$ REPLY/ENABLE=DISKS %OPCOM, 14-DEC-1994, 10:17:09.02, operator enabled, operator OPA0 $ %OPCOM, 14-DEC-1994 10:17:10.30, operator status for operator OPA0 DISKS The REPLY/ENABLE command in this example designates the terminal OPA0 as an operator terminal that can receive messages pertaining to mounting and dismounting disks. The OPCOM message confirms that terminal OPA0 is established as an operator's terminal. 3.%OPCOM, 14-DEC-1994 10:19:33.21, request 5, from user SYSTEM OPA0, Please mount OPGUIDE on DBA3: $ REPLY/PENDING=5 "YOU'LL HAVE TO WAIT... - _$ THERE ARE SEVERAL REQUESTS BEFORE YOURS" . . . $ REPLY/TO=5 14-DEC-1994 10:20:25.50, request 5 completed by operator OPA0 In this example the OPCOM message indicates that a user wants the operator to place the disk volume labeled OPGUIDE on the disk drive DBA3 and prepare the device for connection. The REPLY/PENDING command indicates that the operator can perform the task but not immediately; the /PENDING qualifier prevents the user from entering other commands until the operator fulfills or aborts the request. After mounting the disk on the drive the operator sends a message indicating that the request has been fulfilled. When no message is specified, OPCOM sends a standard message indicating that the task has been performed. 4.%%%%%%%%%% OPCOM, 14-DEC-1994 10:20:50.39 %%%%%%%%%%% request 5 from user ROBINSON Please mount volume GRAPHIC_FILES in device _DUA11: Shelf 4 - slot B $ REPLY/TO=5 "SUBSTITUTE DUA4" The REPLY/TO command with the SUBSTITUTE syntax in this example is used in response to a MOUNT/ASSIST command entered by user ROBINSON. The MOUNT device is switched to DUA4, and the logical name specified by the user in the MOUNT command is defined with an equivalence name of DUA4 rather than the drive originally specified. 5.$ REPLY/STATUS %OPCOM, 14-DEC-1994 10:20:50.39, operator status for operator OPA0 DISKS The REPLY/STATUS command in this example requests that the operator terminal status for terminal OPA0 be displayed. The response from OPCOM indicates that terminal OPA0 is enabled to receive messages from disk devices. 6.$ REPLY/BELL/TERMINAL=TTC1: "YOUR FILE HAS COMPLETED PRINTING. BOB S." The REPLY command in this example sends a message to the user logged in at terminal TTC1. When the message displays, a bell rings at that terminal. 7.$ REPLY/ENABLE %OPCOM, 14-DEC-1994 10:22:19.75, operator status for operator OPA0 CENTRAL, PRINTER, TAPES, DISKS, DEVICES, CARDS, NETWORK, CLUSTER, LICENSE, OPER11, OPER12 . . . $ REPLY/DISABLE=(PRINTER, TAPES) %OPCOM, 14-DEC-1994 10:22:26.07, operator disabled, operator OPA0 The REPLY/ENABLE command in this example designates terminal OPA0 to receive messages from all facilities. Later, the REPLY /DISABLE command selectively disables OPA0 from receiving messages pertaining to print devices and tapes.
