ethernet adapter address

I am running OpenVMS V 7.3-2 with a common environment cluster

Can anyone tell me how to find out MAC address for each computer

In each machine (DS25 Alpha Workstations)
I have one ethernet adapter (1000MBs) connected to internel network while the second adapter (Fast Ethernet) is supposed to be connected to the internet. So I need to figure out the mac addresses of the second adapter.

I tried using show network "tcp/ip" /full but was not sure where to look for. If there is a better way please let me know

I also tried $tcpip show config
it gave

I do not know what I need to give there.

The systems have decnet plus running and communicate internally over decnet

If you need more info please let me know

Thanks in Advance

Re: ethernet adapter address

You need to issue the command


Depending on your configuration requirements you may also want to review the LAN Failover options new in VMS 7.3-2. See the System Managers Manual vol 2 for details. http://h71000.www7.hp.com/doc/82FINAL/aa-pv5nj-tk/aa-pv5nj-tk.HTMl

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

Re: ethernet adapter address


Andy gives you the right command. If you want to do this with tcpip (and you have all yours interfaces configured in it) you can do:

$ tcpip show interface /full
