DECNET ON THIS HOST NOT COMING UP

Re: DECNET ON THIS HOST NOT COMING UP

Configure DECnet Phase IV on the DEC 2000 box.

@SYS$MANAGER:NETCONFIG

You'll have to provide a node name and node address, and (usually) take the defaults for the DECnet server settings.

Then:

$ RUN SYS$SYSTEM:NCP
NCP> COPY KNOWN NODES FROM x.y TO BOTH

where x.y is the DECnet Phase IV numeric address of a host with a DECnet host database somewhere on your local DECnet network. I see 1.51 is one such node.

Skipping the step of reading the OpenVMS and the associated product installation and configuration manuals is unfortunately not feasible on OpenVMS; the system management environment is both comparatively arcane and comparatively unforgiving. You will end up frustrated, or lost, or both.

Re: DECNET ON THIS HOST NOT COMING UP

I already see the node.
but when you start the software FASTRIP,
he asks a question:
"boot from resident software?"

I say yes and then not do anything:
"boot from resident software? Y "

Now since Decnet works,
FASTRIP etc. is application software, and You have to find somebody at Your site to understand it.
