decnet - incorrect executor node number

Hi everyone
After a reboot, my Decnet Phase 5 is no longer working.
i can "set host 0" but nothing else.

I think the executor node number is wrong on ncp, but how do I change this?

Thanks terry

Re: decnet - incorrect executor node number

What do you mean with 'nothing else'?
What is the error message you get.

Can you show the output of:

$ mc ncl show all

and

$ mc ncl show rout cir * all stat

Re: decnet - incorrect executor node number

thanks for getting back to me.
I meant that I cannot set host to any other nodes, either using name or address.

Re: decnet - incorrect executor node number

the DNA_OSInetwork from above command has picked up the name of another server.

I need to get rid of this incorrect executor node number and incorrect DNA_OSInetwork value.

How do I do this?

Thanks

Re: decnet - incorrect executor node number

You can run sys$manager:net$configure.com to reconfigure DECnet on your host.

hi there ran net-configure and rebooted server. now showing correct address but still unable to set host to or from this server? Any other ideas.

TMcB,

which of the 3 LAN interfaces is really connected to your LAN supporting DECnet Phase IV protcols (EIA, FPA or EWA) ?

SET NODE 0 ROUTING CIRCUIT EIA-0 ENABLE PHASEIV ADDRESS = TRUE
SET NODE 0 ROUTING CIRCUIT FPA-0 ENABLE PHASEIV ADDRESS = FALSE
SET NODE 0 ROUTING CIRCUIT EWA-0 ENABLE PHASEIV ADDRESS = FALSE

It seems you have three devices confugured as routing circuits for DECnet. When running net$configure in basic mode it will configure all circuits it can find. Maybe you do not want all of them. You need to run net$configure with parameter 'advanced' and then choose option 3 (configure devices) and answer "none" for the data link name on the devices you don't want to use.

HI.

when I try to set host to anything i get :

Decnet should be running on EIA0

Re: decnet - incorrect executor node number

TMcB,

you're currently running DECnet Phase IV protocol on EIA. This may not be the right LAN.

Look at your SYS$MANAGER:NET$ROUTING_STARTUP.NCL-OLD;* files to check which interface you've been using before.

Re: decnet - incorrect executor node number

Hi Volker

looks like you are correct.
After rerunning decnet_register and rebooting to correct the address - I was able to set host to other servers in the same building, but not other buildings.

Think this is because it needs to run on other card - Do I need to reboot servers for this to take effect?

Thanks

Re: decnet - incorrect executor node number

TMcB,

it should be possible to change the routing circuit config online, but if you're running other protocols on those LAN interfaces, they may not allow the changing of the MAC address associated with ENABLE PHASEIV ADDRESS = TRUE or FALSE.

Just fix the DECnet configuration and reboot.

Volker.
