LANCP DLL fails to downline load DECserver boot file

Hi,

I've got following problem:

I enabled a device for all DLL requests, but DECserver can't download boot file.

$ MC LANCP SHOW DLL:
...
LLB0 enabled in selective mode for all requests, data size 246 bytes

No messages appear in OPCOM (REPLY/ENA=NETWORK),
Number of loads does not change (MC LANCP SHOW DLL)

In order to get it working, I have to define the decserver with address to allow the DECserver to boot.
MC LANCP DEFINE NODE DS0001 /ADDRESS=08-00-2b-12-34-56 /BOOT=OTHER
MC LANCP SET NODE DS0001 /PERM

This is in contradiction with "for all requests" on the LLB0 device.


MC LANCP SHOW NODE
Node Listing, volatile database (9-FEB-2009 14:29:56.69):
(Catchall entry):
DS001 (08-00-2B-12-34-56):


I'm running OpenVMS 7.3-2, Sysupd 16.


Anyone any clue?

Thnx,
Bob Kortlandt

I use mop via ncl so no experience with lancp.

But study the "help def node/file" in lancp. You need to specify the file to load (in my case sys$sysroot:[decserver]wweng2.sys.

Hi Wim,

Problem is that ALL DECservers should be able to upload, they'll ask themselves for the file they need.

I don't want to specify every DECserver's MAC address.

Grtz,
Bob.

Bob,

Check that DECnet isn't "stealing" the request.

Have you MOP via DECnet enabled ?

Forget my answer......
You want to boot all your DECservers via LANCP instead of DECnet, right ?

Just a guess:

To me this indicates no request is coming in at all, otherwise You would see an error message from lanacp.

So there must be some lower level problem: decservers not in same (brigded-)LAN ?
MOP protocol not enabled in bridges ?
Filters in switches ?
