Decnet Phase V sample command to add a node

I never learned the Phase V commands because I had no need ... I have all Phase IV in my realm. A remote site Phase V node needs to talk to some "new" Alpha's in my data center.

Could someone please give the sample command(s) to add a reference to a Phase IV node in a Phase V system? The parttime mgr at the remote site also isn't familiar with the syntax.

Many will feel tempted to tell me to RTFM ... my brain is too small to absorb info that I don't require on a day to day basis (especially on a Friday), and surely at least one person actually switched to Phase V and knows how it works. ;-)

Cheers,
Art

Re: Decnet Phase V sample command to add a node

I normally do:

mcr DECNET_REGISTER.EXE

(And then start guessing.)

Not I. I'd tell you to tell the other guy to
do it.

Re: Decnet Phase V sample command to add a node

Hi Art,

Yes. I also use the "$MCR DECNET_REGISTER" to add the remote node's
decnet information in the current node.

Refer the following link -
http://h71000.www7.hp.com/doc/73final/6499/6499pro_004.html
->"5.3 Managing DECdns and Local Namespace Information with decnet_register"

No problem. Once you complete the Phase V configuration, it would be 2
people who would know it!

Good luck with the configuration.

Re: Decnet Phase V sample command to add a node

Would love to give you 10 points for that, but you're making me R TM FM ;-)

The section of interest is: 5.3.4 http://h71000.www7.hp.com/doc/73final/6499/6499pro_005.html#select_five_two

Unfortunately it doesn't give a clear example of what a Phase IV entry would be (example shown is a LocalFile add). Under "Address Towers" what is the syntax for / signifigance of "Specify one of the following transports: TP4, TP4=tsel, or NSP."? P4 = Phase IV? tsel = ?!?!

Anyone with a Phase V test box that can give me a screen shot of what it looks like for Phase IV add so I can relay those details?

Thanks,
Art

Ahh.

I have attached the screen shots of steps to using decnet_registe to add a
remote node details. Check the attachment.

Hope this helps.

Re: Decnet Phase V sample command to add a node

First attempt at a reply bombed ...

Ok I'll give you 10 points. I got permission from the remote admin to try the decnet_register program. Added the references ... works!

You'll have that second hat in no time! I passed this knowledge on to two folks at the other end so know at least 5 people in the world have some Decnet Phase V experience (thanks Steven ... reply back, we'll get you a few more deserved points).

Attached is a "real life" example.

Cheers,
