Re: "Show net" is showing wrong IP.

Hello

Do not invest too much on this command, I once had similar problems, and the answer was to ignore what "show net" was saying.

I guess
$ ucx sh interface
or
$ tcpip show interface
displays the correct addres, stick with it.

Re: "Show net" is showing wrong IP.

Not knowing if it is infuenced, but try:
@SYS$STARTUP:SYS$NET_SERVICES_TCPIP
and see if SHOW NETWORK reflects it.
Eventually do a SET VERIFY before to see where it gets the wrong address.
Also check the local host database for wrong entry.

Re: "Show net" is showing wrong IP.

You could view:

$ HELP SET NETWORK

and then (when system operations are not at a critical point) you could try the obvious and brute-force fix.

Re: "Show net" is showing wrong IP.

I think $ show net takes its values from the logicals tcpip$inet_* which could be anything.

Re: "Show net" is showing wrong IP.

SHOW NETWORK displays static values stored in SYS$NET_SERVICES logical names. See:

$ SHOW LOGICAL SYS$NET_SERVICES*

It's entirely possible the IP address was changed after the logical names were defined (with @SYS$STARTUP:SYS$NET_SERVICES_TCPIP).

As suggested by Joseph, you can re-execute the procedure at any time to update the TCPIP values, BUT you must provide the host name and host address, eg:

$ @SYS$STARTUP:SYS$NET_SERVICES_TCPIP "TCP/IP" DEMO 155.135.79.111

Re: "Show net" is showing wrong IP.

If you look at the logicals TCPIP$INET_*, is that information correct ?
