Re: Decnet & Proxy login question

I don't want to start a war (I love Phase IV and have intentionally never installed Phase V, plus with my Multinet stack and its DECnet IP Tunnel, I connect just fine to my remote locations) ... but make sure what DECnet versions you have on your other systems.

If everything you have now is Phase IV, the argument could be made to set your new system up also with Phase IV. If you want to do this, you must first uninstall Phase V before installing Phase IV on your Integrity server.

If you will be mixing versions, read up on anything and everything that entails ... and if this will be your first Phase V box, what extra features and config items you will have to work with.

I mention this because your PRODUCT display shows Phase V being there :-)

Re: Decnet & Proxy login question

Verne - Good point!

Here's what my other Alphas currently running:

----------------------------------- ----------- ------------
PRODUCT KIT TYPE STATE
----------------------------------- ----------- ------------
DEC AXPVMS DECNET_OSI V7.3-2 Full LP Installed
----------------------------------- ----------- ------------

1 item found


Our new Alpha server is currently in production test environment and we would like to migrate to the new environment in couple of months. What should I do in this case?

Thank you.

Same stuff, different name. If you're
already using DECNET_OSI/DECNET_PLUS/Phase V
on your old systems, then it probably makes
sense to use it on your new system(s).

Re: Decnet & Proxy login question

I need your help once again. I've configured what was installed on my Alpha server "HP I64VMS DECNET_PLUS V8.3" -- I also added the host on both of mine Alpha servers that I need both of them to talk to each other vice versa. I also added the proxy in the UFA file for myself to test the remote copy between nodes. When I tried to copy between nodes, I received this error message, "%COPY-E-OPENOUT, error opening Ronco"jorge password"::DISK5:[USER.jorge]LOGIN.C
OM;41 as output
-RMS-E-CRE, ACP file create failed
-SYSTEM-F-NOSUCHNODE, remote node is unknown
%COPY-W-NOTCOPIED, DISK5:[USER.jorge]LOGIN.COM;41 not copied


I can ping the server on either nodes without any issues. I can also FTP between nodes as well. What am I missing here??

Thanks,
Jorge

Re: Decnet & Proxy login question

did you add the remote nodename

$ MCR DECNET_REGISTER

and use the menu option to add a node.

Re: Decnet & Proxy login question

Which protocol do you want to use for proxy??

DECNET or TCPIP

DECNET
-----
If u want to configue decnet first..
Then run
$@net$configure basic

After that you can add proxy account by
$run sys$system:authorize
$ADD/PROXY MISHA::MARCO */DEFAULT

For TCPIP
---------
ADD PROXY user { /HOST=host | /REMOTE_USER=user }

[ /PERMANENT ]

Re: Decnet & Proxy login question

I was missing MCR DECNET_REGISTER -- As Ian suggested, I configured MCR DECNET_REGISTER and now everything is working.

Wow, what a learning session I had with DECNET.

One quick question. What would I need to setup for a user to perform remote copy between nodes without passing the "Username & Password".

Thank you very much!!

Re: Decnet & Proxy login question

Jorge,

Create a proxy account at the remote node and grant proxy acount access to your account at local node... and use the following command

$copy rem_node::rem_filename local_filename
rem_file should be in the default device/dir and the remote proxy account shoud have access permission for the rem_filename.

If the file is not the default dire of proxy account, then specify the directory like this,
$copy rem_node::[rem_dir]rem_filename local_filename.
