OpenVMS Host resolving

Like in Unix /etc/hosts and /etc/resolv.conf file, what is the equality in OpenVMS ?

I would like add some names/IPs in OpenVMS, since those entries not exist in DNS.

How can i do this ?

Re: OpenVMS Host resolving

These things depend on your IP software.

If you're running HP's TCPIP product, then
the resolver configuration is done using:
TCPIP SET NAME_SERVICE
and the local hosts data base is manipulated
using:
TCPIP SET HOST


TCPIP HELP SET HOST
TCPIP HELP SET NAME_SERVICE

http://h71000.www7.hp.com/doc/index.html
http://h71000.www7.hp.com/doc/tcpip56.html

After that, it helps to know the version:

TCPIP SHOW VERSION


Whatever you do, don't attempt to find any
data base files and edit them. (Unless you'd
like to corrupt the (indexed) files, and
cripple normal operation, that is.)

Re: OpenVMS Host resolving

For TCPware:
edit TCPWARE:HOSTS. and add the new information in the format:
address hostname [alias [alias ...]]

For MultiNet:
Edit MULTINET:HOSTS.LOCAL and add information in RFC-952 format:
HOST : address : name[,alias] : [computer type] : [Operating system] : [services]

Then use MULTINET HOST_TABLE COMPILE and
@MULTINET:INSTALL_DATABASES

Re: OpenVMS Host resolving

never edit the files always insert the the right way

If the is no dn available you kan use the local host file

to add a node on the locale host file

$ tcpip set host/address=11.22.33.44 testnode.testdom.com /alias=testnode1

to remove
$ tcpip set nohost testnode.testdom.com
$ tcpip set host testnode.testdom.com/noalias=testnode1

for more anwsers there is always the HELP
$ tcpip help
