Adding DE500 NIC to AlphaServer 2100

Customer has asked that DE500 NIC cards be added to their AS2100's so they can run 100mb full duplex. Their AS2100's run OpenVMS for Alpha 7.1, DECnet IV and UCX 4.2 (ECO 5). Networking currently runs on the aui connector on the IO module.

Can someone tell me the sequence of steps and commands I need to follow to do this?

I know I have to install ECO ALPLAN03_071 and the NIC, but what is the best way remove the existing config. from DECnet, UCX, LAT, ... and add the new config. I assume the new NIC will show as device EWB so I plan on >>>set ewb0_mode fastfd (and have their networking person set the port to 100mg and full, no auto). All information is appreciated.

Re: Adding DE500 NIC to AlphaServer 2100

Which DE500 ?

working from memory i think

$ UCX SHOW INTERFACE
and note the details
$ UCX SET CONFIG NOINTERFACE WE0 to delete old interafce from TCPIP

@SYS$MANAGER:UCX$CONFIG
option 1 (core?)
then option for configure interfaces. 2nd card will probably be we1. Don't configure we0.
Configure we1 with same details as noted previously.

$ MCR NCP
DEFINE LINE EWB-0 STATE OND
DEFINE LINE EWA-0 STATE OFF
DEFINE CIRC EWB-0 STATE ON
DEFINE CIRC EWB-0 STATE OFF

restart DECnet and IP
