Re: DECNET ON THIS HOST NOT COMING UP

Could You please be a bit more specific ?
What is a "MI RIPSERVER"?
Is this a VMS system ?
If yes, which version.

Then we (common plural) can ask to answer some more questions like
Is decnet installed at all ?
Is a logical NET$IGNORE_DECNET defined ?
Are there error messages when decnet starts ? (usually early in system startup).

DECnet and IP are two different things.

What are you really seeing? What would you
like to see instead? What did you really do?
What really happened when you did it?

Actual facts here would probably be more
helpful than your vague and confused
interpretations of the facts.

Re: DECNET ON THIS HOST NOT COMING UP

>>Is a logical NET$IGNORE_DECNET defined ?
I think yes

You think ? SHOW LOGICAL NET$IGNORE_DECNET
If it is 1 or Yes, then this is the reason why Decnet is not started.

Re: DECNET ON THIS HOST NOT COMING UP

So net$ignore_decnet is NOT defined, and the reason for not starting the decnet is less easy.
Do I understand it right: You have a system (disk), but don't know at all how it is configured, if it has decnet (or tcpip/ip) installed at all ?

Re: DECNET ON THIS HOST NOT COMING UP

Principiante? Españole? Hola. Tengo un poco de Españole.

We can spend an afternoon here going back and forth with this discussion, one question and one response at a time.

Or you can describe this DEC 2000 series box and particularly its recent history, and what you are trying to do and what command(s) that you are using, and what error message(s) you are seeing.

Has DECnet ever been in use here before?

Did someone recently reconfigure the network on this box? If so, please go back and make sure that DECnet starts up first. That DECnet starts before LAT and TCP/IP Services.

If the box is reachable via TCP/IP and an external network, then you can choose to have somebody log into the box remotely and have a look and a quick reconfiguration of the box. Fixing this general error is usually a quick fix for el técnico.

A DEC 2000 series box is an old Alpha box, comparatively unstable as Alpha boxes go (many of these boxes were dumped on the hobbyist market for this reason), and very, very, very particular about its hardware configuration.

Re: DECNET ON THIS HOST NOT COMING UP

NUVMC,

I have to leave for a meeting, but a possible "stab in the dark"

IF (and I do say IF) you are dealing with a failed AlphaStation 200, the name of the Ethernet adapter is generally EWA-0 (in the DECnet format). The adapter on an AXP 2000 is different (on an AXP 3000 workstation that I have here, it is SVA-0).

If DECnet has never successfully started on this replacement box, perhaps running SYS$MANAGER:NETCONFIG.COM is required?
