The Question is:
WE are having a problem MCSP Serving volumes from our Alpha2100A to our
Alpha1000. FOr some reason the drives on the Alpha2100A stopped showing up on
the Alpha1000. I went into NCP and did a show known circuit char. Found that
the circuit ID EWA-0 is in t
he disabled state? Not sure why? Also noticed that my UCX doesn't start either
unless I manually start it?
The Answer is :
Network protocols such as DECnet, LAT, and IP are not particularly
related to MSCP disk services, nor to clustering, and are not used
as transports for OpenVMS Cluster communications.
The activities of the MSCP server are controlled by OpenVMS system
parameters, either via MODPARAMS.DAT (for direct access) and via
the CLUSTER_CONFIG.COM and CLUSTER_CONFIG_LAN.COM procedures.
The OpenVMS Wizard would initially assume there is a problem or
error in your site-specific SYSTARTUP_VMS.COM procedure, or that
there are some component startips missing from SYSTARTUP_VMS.COM.
As a suggestion, add a SET NOON at the very top of the file, as
this can prevent the startup procedure from exiting on an error.
Then reboot the system when convenient, and monitor the messages
output on the console by the system startup. (You could also use
the STARTUP_P2 system parameter to write the output from the system
startup to a log file.)
