Problem with Terminalserver using MOP download

Hello, maybe someone can help me here trying to figure out what's wrong. I had to replace a Decserver 700 with one that does not have a FlashRAM card, so it will need to download the OS from MOP. The Terminalserver has 08-00-2B-2E-48-AC. The system is runing OVMS 7.3-1, Decnet phase IV. I attached to the console port and the Decserver is trying to get WWENG1.

I receive the following error:

SYSTEM@RFEW02>
%%%%%%%%%%% OPCOM 8-MAR-2005 19:06:41.70 %%%%%%%%%%%

Re: Problem with Terminalserver using MOP download

Can you connect to the terminal server
using MCR NCP CONNECT TS012
?

Re: Problem with Terminalserver using MOP download

Nope. It's stuck trying to download the OS. I does also not respond to sending a "break" at the console (attached to port_1 of the server). I also disconnected the NIC, tyring to get a Local> prompt. But no luck. Unfortunately the server does not even have a slot for inserting a flashcard, like the other 700-08 modules that I have. There are 7 other Decserver 700 on the same switch, and connecting to them works fine.

Re: Problem with Terminalserver using MOP download

Markus,

It seems that you have enabled both (DECnet IV MOP and LAN MOP). Never tested if they can coexist (and now I have no oportunity to do so), but reading the migration procedure from DECnet to LANCP (and back) it is described to disable DECnet MOP when using LANCP and viceversa. See:

http://h71000.www7.hp.com/doc/731FINAL/6017/6017pro_099.html#index_x_5264

So, try to disable mop services on one of them.

Re: Problem with Terminalserver using MOP download

Hi, thanks for the reply!

SYS$EXAMPLES:LAN$POPULATE.COM does not find anything, and LANCP> sho dev /mop shows that I have EWA0 enabled. To my knowledge, CLUSTER_CONFIG_[LAN].COM was never done on that machine. But I did the following"

NCP>set circ ewa-0 state off
NCP>set circ ewa-0 service disabled
NCP>define circ ewa-0 service disabled
NCP>set circ ewa-0 state on

SYSTEM@RFEW02>rep/en

SYSTEM@RFEW02>mc ncp
NCP>connect node ts012
Target does not respond

now I have to wait... since I'm not in the office to switch the TS off/on.

Re: Problem with Terminalserver using MOP download

When you connect a terminal to the console port of the server (port 1 by default), when server messages do you see on the terminal?

Re: Problem with Terminalserver using MOP download

Markus

Are you check to connect with terminal server
using the next command?

NCP>connect node TS12 via EWA-0 physical address 08-00-2B-2E-48-AC

Saludos, Daniel.

Re: Problem with Terminalserver using MOP download

as you have now disabled DECnet MOP download then you should define the node in LANCP
(DEFINE NODE)

Where do the logicals MOP$LOAD and MOP$NAMED_LOAD refer to ?

Re: Problem with Terminalserver using MOP download

Are you using the same network connection as with the old decserver ? If not, are your network speed and duplex settings 10/half ?
Had about the same problem years ago but didn't keep details.

Re: Problem with Terminalserver using MOP download

Thanks to everyone who responded! Meanwhile I found the problem. It was a bad network cable.
