NCL STARTUP MISSING SYS$CLUSTER_NODE?

Running HP DECnet-Plus for OpenVMS v7.3-2 on a two node cluster. When you boot-up we are getting this error message:-

%NET$STARTUP-W-SYSCLUSTUNDEF, logical SYS$CLUSTER_NODE is incorrectly defined
%DCL-I-SUPERSEDE, previous value of SYS$CLUSTER_NODE has been superseded
%NET$STARTUP-I-DEFSYSCLUST, logical SYS$CLUSTER_NODE has been defined by the sta
rtup procedure

***********************************************************
The DNA$NodeSynonym attribute for the node object could not
be obtained because of a failure in the call to look up
the node synonym in the directory service. Therefore, the startup
procedure has defaulted the value of logical SYS$CLUSTER_NODE
to be " ::", the first six characters of the last
simplename of the cluster node fullname .
***********************************************************
%NET-I-LOADED, executive image NET$LOOP_APPLICATION.EXE loaded
%NET$STARTUP-W-SYSCLUSTUNDEF, logical SYS$CLUSTER_NODE is incorrectly defined
%DCL-I-SUPERSEDE, previous value of SYS$CLUSTER_NODE has been superseded
%NET$STARTUP-I-DEFSYSCLUST, logical SYS$CLUSTER_NODE has been defined by the sta
rtup procedure

Is the SYS$CLUSTER_NODE I define or should it get set by running a config?

$ sh log SYS$CLUSTER_NODE*
"SYS$CLUSTER_NODE" = "::"
"SYS$CLUSTER_NODE_FULLNAME" = " "

Re: NCL STARTUP MISSING SYS$CLUSTER_NODE?

The SYS$CLUSTER* logicals seem to be related to the DECnet-Plus cluster alias. Do you have a DECnet cluster alias defined on this cluster ? Is it correctly defined in the namespace ?

Try re-running @NET$CONFIGURE and re-execute [2] change naming information

Hi,

You might want to do:
$ mcr ncl flush session control naming cache entry *
Follow the suggestion of Volker.
Rename (or delete) the DNS$CACHE.* files in SYS$SYSTEM.
and reboot.

Hi VMSdude

do you have a SYS$SYSROOT:[SYSMGR]NET$ALIAS_STARTUP.NCL and if yes, what's in it?
