about sys$startup:tcpip$lpd_systartup.com

Hello there

I was trying to find where the system run the
sys$startup:tcpip$lpd_systartup.com when system startup. I had used the search command
try find the file, but no file seems to run sys$startup:tcpip$lpd_systartup.com. Any idea?

Thanks very much

Lionel,

It's called from SYS$MANAGER:TCPIP$LPD_STARTUP.COM, which in it's turn is called from SYS$STARTUP:TCPIP$STARTUP.COM.

Re: about sys$startup:tcpip$lpd_systartup.com

I just went through the file sys$startup:tcpip$startup.com. I didn't find
any place to run sys$startup:tcpip$lpd_systartup.com
Our vms version 7.3-2 and tcpip version is
v5.4

Thanks very much

Re: about sys$startup:tcpip$lpd_systartup.com

Lionel,

The sys$manager:tcpip$lpd_startup.com is not "directly" invoked from sys$startup:tcpip$startup.com. The latter command procedure creates a list of things to start based on the configuration and then calls the appropriate startup command procedure. E.g. if TELNET is configured, it calls sys$manager:tcpip$telnet_startup.com, if not configured, it doesn't.

Hope this helps,

Re: about sys$startup:tcpip$lpd_systartup.com

Lionel, as Kris said it is called from TCPIP$LPD_STARTUP.COM.

The exact place in the command procedure is as follows,

At the top of the procedure,
$ serv_tailor = f$edit("sys$startup:''serv_id'_systartup.com","upcase")


And further down in the procedure where the procedure you are talking about is actually run,
$ if f$search(serv_tailor) .nes. ""
$ then
$ call log_info "%TCPIP-I-INFO, executing site-specific startup"
$ @'serv_tailor'
$ endif


The startup procedure actually checks for the file before trying to run it. Therefore you won't have any problems if it doesn't exist.

"Therefore you won't have any problems if it doesn't exist."

Except that the service is not working in that case.

Note also that ucx show config ena servi must also be used with and without "/common" to find all enabled services.

Win, the tcpip$lpd_systartup.com file is only for site specific commands and it is optional. The actual LPD service is started within the tcpip$lpd_startup.com.
