The Question is:
This relates to dfs version 2.2-3.
I got this error message for the first time and I don't know what to do.
I did mount for client:
$ mcr dfs$control
%IPC-E-BCKTRNSFAIL, failure on the back translate address request
It used to work before . What has changed?
The Answer is :
This initially appears to be a result of a change to the local
DECnet-Plus environment or network configuration, or a related
failure or misconfiguration problem on the node.
Most commonly, the back translation failure error is caused by an
access from a remote node that is not registered in the DNS or
local DECnet database of the node reporting the BCKTRNSFAIL error.
Please contact the Compaq Customer Support Center for assistance
checking and configuring the local DECnet-Plus environment.
