Enableing PATH Option in Bind Resolver

OpenVMS V7.3-2/V8.3
TCPIP V5.4/V5.6

I need to use the Bind Resolver Path option and have entered values via the cmd:

$ TCPIP SET NAME /SYSTEM /PATH=domain-list

The change shows up in a TCPIP SHOW NAME display.

Is there a way to enable PATH usage by the Bind Resolver without having to totally restart TCPIP?

Re: Enableing PATH Option in Bind Resolver

Jack,

the BIND resolver path specification is active immediately:

$ ucx ping www
ping: unknown host www
%SYSTEM-F-UNREACHABLE, remote node is not currently reachable
$ ucx set name/path=invenate.de/system
$ ucx ping www
PING www.INVENATE.DE (82.165.121.215): 56 data bytes
...

Tested with TCPIP V5.4 on OpenVMS Alpha V7.3-2

Jack,

Don't forget to do a $tcpip set config name/path="my path list" if you want the search path to survive tcpip shutdowns and system reboots.
