PATHWORKS access and Domain Controller?

» close window

The Question is:

I am trying to connect a PC (Windows NT 4, sp4) to an Alpha DS-20 running
 OpenVMS 7.2-1 using TCP/IP over DECnet. Everything is working except I cannot
 map a drive to the Alpha server. When I set the domain on the PC I get the
 error "The domain controller
 for this domain cannot be located". I have gone through the manuals and the
 TCP/IP config many times but nothing is obviously (to me anyway) incorrect.
 From the PC I can ping the Alpha and transfer files via ftp. But I really want
 to map a drive. Do I ma
ke the Alpha the "domain controller" and if so how? Any help would be
 1 Alpha file server
 1 PC
 1 Laser printer
 1 10baseT hub
 PC Windows NT ver 4.0, sp 4
 Pathworks 32
 Reflection Suite for X
 Alpha OpenVMS ver 7.2-1
 TCP/IP 5.0A
 DECnet plus
 Pathworks 6.0B
 Pathworks Advanced Server V7.2

The Answer is :

  That there is no mention of Advanced Server nor PATHWORKS implies
  that neither is configured and running.  You will want to avail
  yourself of the available Advanced Server documentation, and
  pariticularly investigate the operational status of the Advanced
  Server software.
  You could also use PATHWORKS V6.0B or later, but Advanced Server is
  the recommended product.
  Failing this investigation, please contact the Compaq Customer
  Support Center.
