How can I tell what version of DecNet is running?

We are auditing installed / licensed products, layered products and 3rd party products.

If I can set h 0, does this mean DECNET is running? From the same node, if I set h "next node in cluster" I get a license error of

%LICENSE-E-NOAUTH, RTPAD, No DECnet License. Off node use is not authorized on t
his node.

Also, license list doesn't show decnet , dvnetend or dvnetrtg. On an Alpha I could use product show history, but what about on a VAX?

So is there a way to determine if Decnet Phase IV, OSI or Phase V is installed using NCL, NCP or LATCP commands?

Hi,

If you are having Decnet-plus or OSI, then give the following command to see the installed version:

$MC NCL SHO IMPLEMENTATION

If Decnet IV is installed, then above command won't work.

HTH,
Thanks & regards,

Hello,

how about f$getsyi("DECNET_VERSION")?

Hi Martin,

Please let me know how to interpret following :

$ write sys$output f$getsyi("decnet_version")
00050C00
$


Thanks & regards,

Hi,

F$GETSYI("DECNET_VERSION") gives 00040000 on DECnet Phase IV nodes, and 0005xxxx (I'm not sure about the 'xxxx') on Phase V nodes.

Hope this helps,

Kris

On Alphas you may need also check the sys$update:vmsinstal.history - simple text file. The program installed with the script VMSINSTAL won't be shown by PROD SHO HIST.
I think it works also on VAX.

Hello,

At the DCL prompt you can also use the command $SHOW NETWORK or $SHOW NETWORK/FULL. This will tell You which Network Protocols are configured on your system, if the state is "on" and what the version is. I believe this command is available since OpenVMS V7.x on both VAX & Alpha.

For DECnet Phase IV the following command will tell you if DECnet Phase IV is configured:

$ MC NCP SHOW EXECUTOR

For DECnet Phase V the next command will tell you the DECnet Phase V version:

$ MC NCL SHO IMPLEMENTATION

Licenses which enable You to use DECnet are:

DVNETEND
DVNETEXT
DVNETRTG

and the package licenses:

NET-APP-SUP-150
NET-APP-SUP-200
NET-APP-SUP-300
NET-APP-SUP-400

These package licenses enable you also to run some other (part of) products like UCX, DCPS...etc

To see which license are loaded on your system you can use the command:

$ SHOW LIC NET* or $SHOW LIC DV*

Victor,
You can lookup the DECNet version on your system following any one of the following methods

1. MC NCP SHOW VER (For DECnet IV)
MC NCL SHOW VER (For DECnet V)

2. SHOW NET

3. PRODUCT SHOW PRODUCT
