Re: UCX Change IP-address & Nodename.

Geir,

I supose you have UCX and DECnet phase IV.
Use sys$manager:ucx$config.com to change the ip address.
For DECnet address you can use sys$manager:netconfig.com but this can delete all other definitions! So better to work this from ncp:

$ mc ncp
NCP> PURGE NODE old_address ALL
NCP> PURGE NODE old_name ALL
NCP> DEFINE EXECUTOR ADDRESS new_address
NCP> DEFINE EXECUTOR NAME new_name

restart decnet

Re: UCX Change IP-address & Nodename.

Geir,

if you change your DECnet name and address, you MUST also change them in SYSGEN

SYSGEN> USE CURRENT
SYSGEN> SET SCSNODENAME =
SYSGEN> SET SCSNODEID = <1024 * areanr + nodenr >
SYSGEN> WRITE CURRENT

Also change that in MODPARAMS.

Reboot as soon as convenient.

Success

Proost.

Have one on me.

Re: UCX Change IP-address & Nodename.

Geir.
For me, a procedure to modify nodename and address (if you have DECnet V) is:
Modify SCS parameters (SCSNODE & SCSSYSTEMID)
on params.dat (using SYSGEN) and modparams.dat
Modify DECnet local name using net$configure (option 2)
Check new local name using decnet_register
Modify routing values editing NET$ROUTING_STARTUP.NCL.
Modify ip values, using TCPIP$CONFIG.COM

Saludos.
Daniel.

Hi,
Thanks for great answers. But I also want to configure the default gateway on the IP-network.

Re: UCX Change IP-address & Nodename.

to configure the default gateway
TCPIP SET ROUTE/DEF/GATE=x.x.x.x
or use the menu in TCPIP$CONFIG

Hi,
Thanks for the answer, but I run an older OpenVMS version (6.2), so if you have simular commands for ucx it would be great.
