%NCP-W-INVPVA when starting DECnet Phase IV

I've just installed DECnet Phase IV and ran NETCONFIG.COM. At the end of the procedure, when it starts up the DECnet, I get the following:

%NCP-W-INVPVA, Invalid parameter value , Physical Ethernet address
Line = EIA-0

%NCP-W-INVPVA, Invalid parameter value , Physical Ethernet address
Line = EWA-0

%NCP-W-UNRCMP, Unrecognized component , Circuit
Circuit = EIA-0

%NCP-W-UNRCMP, Unrecognized component , Circuit
Circuit = EWA-0

During the installation I specified this node as a nonrouting node.



Thanks in advance,

That sounds like another protocol like TCP/IP is already started on that interface which prevents the change of the physical address attempted by DECnet.

That was it!

I didn't do a reboot, so TCPIP was running before DECnet got started. Doing a reboot fixed it.


Thanks!
