Re: decnet problem

Have you configured DECnet on the 500au? If you attempt to

$ set host 0

on the 500au can you connect?

More detailed question, what version of DECnet did you install? Did you run the appropriate configuration command file for your version? What is the exact set host command and did you define and set node names? Do the sysgen params match the DECnet address? Are these on the same VLAN/network segment or are you routing DECnet?

And of course "Did this ever work?"

If you don't have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over? Reach me at first_name + "." + last_name at sysmanager net

Please post the results of these commands typed on the "unreachable" 500au:

$ SHOW NETWORK/FULL
$ MCR NCP SHOW EXECUTOR
