how to change node name

Hi,

I want to change node name of my server.
When I give show net I got following output.

$ show net

Product: DECNET Node: OVMS83 Address(es): 13.25
Product: TCP/IP Node: bond007.eri.xko.dec.com Address(es): 16.138.189.68

I want to change node name OVMS83 to bond07.
To do this I run the script file:
@sys$startup:NET$CONFIGURE.COM

and configure the node name to bond07 but it didn't work.

After that I restarted the system but then also it didn't work.

Can anyone help me how to change the node name.

Regards,
ajaydec

hi ajaydec, as far as decnet goes, if you
have a local database use decnet_register
to make a definition for it. use sysgen
to set the scsnode to bond07. if the addess
hasn't changed you don't need to change scssystemid.
