IP Address change on and Alpha running openvms

I need to change an ip address on my alpha. I saw in earlier threads that I should look for @tcpware:cnfnet or @SYS$MANAGER:TCPIP$CONFIG. I don't have either of those. Is there another way to change the ip address.

Re: IP Address change on and Alpha running openvms

Which TCP/IP software are you using on your system? To look for what TCP/IP software your using look for logical names with TCP in them, command files in SYS$STARTUP with tcp in the name or look in SYS$MANAGER:SYSTARTUP_VMS.COM to see which TCP/IP software is being started. Each vendor uses different methods to access the TCP/IP configuration. This is highly dependent on what softare your actually using.

Patrick,

It would sure help if you told us what TCPIP suite you are using.

Thanks...

Re: IP Address change on and Alpha running openvms

Hi,
what version of vms and tcpip do you have?
Another way is (for earliest versions):
- locate yout network adapter
- shutdown TCPIP (from console)
- tcpip set nointerface your_net_adapter
- tcpip set nohost your_hostname
- tcpip set interface your_net_adapter /host=new_IP /network_mast=...
- tcpip set host your_hostname/addres=new_IP
- your OpenVMS was still running

... pls compare these commands with tcpip help

I forgot:
- after stopping TCPIP you must to use TCPIP SET CONFIGURATION ... (in all commands) for exam. "tcpip set conf nointerface"
