DECnet Phase IV on Integrity

Hi,
I have an RX2620 Integrity Server running vms8.3.
I am having problems however getting DECnet phase 4 configured.
I have run net$config to configure but this returns the following errors;
%NCP-W-INVPVA, Invalid parameter value , Physical Ethernet address
Line = EIA-0

%NCP-W-INVPVA, Invalid parameter value , Physical Ethernet address
Line = EIA-1

%NCP-W-UNRCMP, Unrecognized component , Circuit
Circuit = EIA-0

%NCP-W-UNRCMP, Unrecognized component , Circuit
Circuit = EIA-1

%NCP-I-NOINFO, No information in database
%RUN-S-PROC_ID, identification of created process is 000004F3

I have looked and there are EI devices and I have configured TCPIP.

Re: DECnet Phase IV on Integrity

Paul,

are we talking Phase IV or phase V:
Phase IV -> NETCONFIG.COm
Phase V -> NET$CONFIGURE.COM

But since the message say NCP I assum NET$CONFIG was a typo.

Pls. note, that DECnet has to be started 1st on any interface, because it wants to change the address of the interface.

Re: DECnet Phase IV on Integrity

Thanks Kalle,

That was it I had configured and started tcpip first. then tried to configure decnet phase 4.

I stopped tcpip and configured decnet 4 without problem then restarted tcpip.

Thanks,

Re: DECnet Phase IV on Integrity

Hello,

In a multiple NIC environment I'd recommend you use Phase V in Phase IV compatible mode. It givs you better control over which NICs the protocol starts on and on which NICs the MAC address wil change for Phase IV compatible addressing.
