Remote Protocol Error & Unrecognized Individual Destination PDU

Dear Friends,

we have four nodes are in openvms cluster environment. when i check the operator log it shows like this:

Re: Remote Protocol Error & Unrecognized Individual Destination PDU

Regarding you first example with

Data Link Header='AA000400042C00807D20C7378100'H

implies that the packet received has a destination ethernet address of "AA-00-04-00-04-2C" (your node XXXXXX I presume) and was sent from a source address of "00-80-7D-20-C7-37" using some protocol that is registered to Wellfleet Communications "80-01". The unrecognized PDU (protocol data unit) message indicates that your XXXXXX node does not have this protocol (whatever it is) loaded.

And this explains the 1st one a little more.

Re: Remote Protocol Error & Unrecognized Individual Destination PDU

Balamurali,

the Ethernet Protocol type in your first DECnet event messages is 8100 - which seems to be the Ethertype field for 802.1Q VLAN Frames.

Some node in your ethernet network (with a MAC address of 00-80-7D-20-C7-37) is sending a VLAN message to your OpenVMS DECnet-Plus system. This protocol is not available on OpenVMS before version V8.3, which adds VLAN support.

Re: Remote Protocol Error & Unrecognized Individual Destination PDU

Balamurali,

for the remote protocol error, you probably did not show all fields of the DECnet event message. It should have included the remote NSAP address as well. This should at least tell you, which remote DECnet node this message was coming from.

To decode the Erroneous Transport PDU, you would need the DECnet transport protocol specification.

Re: Remote Protocol Error & Unrecognized Individual Destination PDU

The source address of 00-80-7D-20-C7-37 is registered to Equinox Systems Inc, which seem to make serial to Ethernet boxes, amongst other things.

It might not necessarily be a fault on the end system though; it could be some switch in between has tagged it, and it's not been untagged again. You'ld have to check with your network folks what your local VLAN configuration is meant to look like.
