The Question is:
I have just installed the TCPIP_ECO-V0500-112-4
kit since I had problems with using gethostbyname
within a threaded application I am writing (this fixed problem). At the same
time I decided to use the downtime to apply outstanding 7.2-1 patches (my
cluster is not down often - first time this year - so I don't often get a
chance to do this).
I have a problem with the VMS721_LAN-V0200 patch
kit on my XP1000 system. The SYS$EWDRIVER_DE500BA.EXE
driver does not drop into 100Mb/s mode when the SRM
console has autodetected to 100Mb/s (driver constantly reports 10Mb/s mode. A
Personal workstation 600 in the cluster did not have the same problem). I
solved the problem by reverting to the driver file from the VMS721_LAN-V0100
Is this a known issue?
BTW: Love the new SYS$PKADRIVER - works a treat with
my Adaptec ASC29160 controller on my home machine - I
know, not supported - neither is my home machine, PC164.
The Answer is :
Please contact the Compaq Customer Support Center with specifics
of the LAN configuration. Is this a DE500? (See the OpenVMS FAQ
for capabilities of specific variants of DE500 variants.) Also
expect to be asked details of other ECO kits presently installed.
