UCX won't startup automatically.

I'm running open VMS 7.3 on an alphaserver ES40.
Whenever I reboot the system I have to manually execute the command. @sys$manager:ucx$config, and start the TCPIP services. I uncommented the ! in systartup_vms.com to execute @sys$manager:startnet.com. I am running on Decnet Phase_IV V7.3
What else is wrong??

Re: UCX won't startup automatically.

Hello Joseph,

locate the following section in systartup_vms.com

$! Remove the comment delimiter ($!) from the following line to start
$! versions of Digital TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS beginning with V5.0.
$!
$ @SYS$STARTUP:TCPIP$STARTUP.COM


Remove the comment as indicated (and as it has been done in the example above).

HTH, Martin

Re: UCX won't startup automatically.

Hello Joseph (and Martin),
I think you're using UCX V4.xx (because you wrote have do type @sys$manager:ucx$config) so comand to insert in SYS$SYSTARTUP_VMS.COM is @SYS$STARTUP:UCX$STARTUP.COM
You could be sure of your version so it's better type
$ UCX SHOW VERSION
if you have V4.xx it's good use UCX$STARTUP, if you have V5.xx it's better use TCPIP$STARTUP and TCPIP$CONFIG to configure.

H.T.H.

Re: UCX won't startup automatically.

Hello Antonio,

there is a ucx$config.com also on V5. It does invoke tcpip$config.com actually.

Re: UCX won't startup automatically.

Hello Martin,
I know this one; HP has released old command UCX$* that call TCPIP$* to compatibility with older version of software; this's made to permit gradually change of configuration; leaving UCX* command may meet some problem in future version so it's better use current command in SYSTARTUP_VMS.COM.
