Philipe,

This is a DECnet V (or DECnet-Plus) time service problem. Check this thread for explanation:

And to extract the relevant and correct info from the thread Bojan pointed to:

The way to PREVENT it from starting is a SYSTEM_WIDE, logical name NET$DISABLE_DTSS, with any TRUE value.

Define this logical sufficiently EARLY in the bootstrap, ie, in NET$LOGICALS.COM

Alternatively you could run DTSS server on three or more of your systems.

This would mean they would all agree on the time.

Your problem is that you don't have any DTSS server in your network. DTSS is a time synchronization function in DECnet+. Your configuration shows that you need one server. You have two choices:
1. Establish a DTSS server.
2. Disable the DTSS client.

Phillippe,
Its a DTSS issue, either define a logical as mentioned in the posts prior to this or startup the DTSS server.

Re: Msg : too few servers detected from : Node LOCAL:.PC1CA0 DTSS

Indeed, it is a message of DTSS client in DECnet phaseV.
In order to disqualify it you can use:
$ncl
NCL>disable dtss
So that one does not activate in the startup you can comment this line:

ENABLE DTSS SET CLOCK TRUE

in file

sys$startup:NET$DTSS_CLERK_STARTUP.NCL

Regards.
Daniel.
