Re: decnet iv dap status code

j,

the DAP status code consists of a 12 bit MIC code (low bits) followed by a 4 bit MAC code. The MAC code is related to the DAP operation being performed and the MIC code is the lower-level error code.

OpenVMS Alpha FAL seems to output the DAP status codes in HEX. I remember seeing those errors on RSX and documented in some of the RSX DECnet networking manuals (using MAC and MIC code tables).

I've found DAP status code definitions in the PDP-10 archives on Trailing-Edge:

http://pdp-10.trailing-edge.com/bb-h240e-bm_decnet-20_v4_0_dist/01/decnet-sources/dapsym.mac.html

You just have to do some conversion between HEX and OCTAL and you should come up with the following:

5060 = MAC: 0x5 MIC: 0x60 = O140 = RNF
5061 = MAC: 0x5 MIC: 0x61 = O141 = RNL
4032 = MAC: 0x4 MIC: 0x32 = O62 = FNF

MAC 5 = TRN = Data Transfer Error
MAC 4 = FIL = File Open Error

Hope this help,

Volker.

Re: decnet iv dap status code

That helps (PDP-10? I started on DEC-20). The error is happening on DS20 Alpha 7.3-1 from/to Vax4700 V6.2. I had found the mac/mic business in FALDEF but still don't know what codes like RNF RNL mean.

Whoops, my bad. Just noticed the miccode macro defn--now I get it. Thanks. Closing thread.
