The Question is:
If I boot my machine (4100) then my 3rd pty. PCI driver is auto configured and
comes on-line via my entry in SYS$USER_CONFIG.DAT. However if I delete
SYS$USER_CONFIG.DAT and manually try a SYSMAN> IO CONNECT BCA0
/DRIVER=BCDRIVER /ADAPTER=2 /VECTOR=56
then the device never comes online. What am I missing? I know my PCI bus is
adapter=2 and my IRQ is 14 and the rest of the parameters were obtained from
ANA/SYS ...CLUE CONFIG.
The Answer is :
What was included in SYS$USER_CONFIG for the specific PCI device?
It would appear that there is a difference in what was specified, or
that there is a conflicting device, or that there was some other error,
or that there is a resource required by the driver that is not available
when the manual connection occurs.
"BC" is not a registered device prefix, nor is it in the "unregistered"
range -- device driver prefixes "J*" and "Q*" -- that is reserved for
customer (unregistered) device drivers.
Please contact the third-party for assistance with this device driver.
The folks at the Compaq Customer Support Center can assist with the
device registration process, if the third-party desires it.
