list all known nodes in decnet plus

Hi all,

I am profiling a number of VMS nodes installed with DECnet plus.

I would like to know if there is anything in NCL language equivalent to decnet phase IV command "show known nodes"

Hi, try the X-window application, SYS$SYSTEM:NET$MGT, it may provide the answer you seek.

mcr decnet_register is the method for dealing with DECnet Phase V.

One of the menu options allows you to list all the nodes to a text-readable file.

Re: list all known nodes in decnet plus

Hello Patrick,

There is a utility called DECNET_MIGRATE to
convert phase IV command and command procedures
to phase V standard. See the following example:

$ r sys$update:decnet_migrate
DECNET_MIGRATE> convert command "SHOW KNOWN NODES"

! *** Converting the following NCP command to NCL:
! SHOW KNOWN NODES
SHOW NODE 0 ROUTING CIRCUIT {{{}}} ADJACENCY * ALL STATUS

DECNET_MIGRATE>

Patrick,

The best answer is to go into MC DECNET_REGISTER, take option 1, and put an * in the nodename location. That will show you all the nodes that you have "defined". However, unlike NCP, it will not show you things like remote machines you don't have defined, but are connected to your machine.

As I'm sure you've already discovered, NCL is nothing like NCP. DECNET_MIGRATE under certain VMS/DECnet-Plus combinations has been known to crash machines. In addition, the command DECNET_MIGRATE provided will only show you the nodes that are one "hop" away from this machine. So if you are an end node, it will show you the routers in your area. If you are a router, it'll show all the nodes you've received a hello message from.

I hope this clarifies the use of DECNET_MIGRATE.

NCL>sho sess control known towers

will generate something similar
