I have never paid attention to this product and probably should have. ( It appears to based on the Attunity Connect product.

There are likely to be LOG files with details in a [.TMP] directory, parallel to a [.DEF] directory.

Has it ever worked for you?
What changed? SYLOGIN? Logicals?

You may want to try a brute force solution: use MCR DFU SEARCH/FILE=NVDB_RMS.EXE
Once found, define a system logical to point there and try again?

Btw... you may want to check out Attunity's RMS-CDC offering. And can help you keep an Oracle Database up to date in (near) real time with changes made to RMS (indexed) files.

Hope this helps some,
