The Question is:
How do I set the NIC to be 100Mb Full Duplex, it is currently set at 10Mb Half
The Answer is :
You will need to know the device name for the network interface in
question. The OpenVMS Wizard will use device EWA0 as an example.
Within OpenVMS, you can use the LANCP utility:
$ LANCP :== $LANCP
LANCP> SHOW DEVICE EWA0/CHARACTERISTICS
LANCP> SET DEVICE EWA0/SPEED=100/FULL_DUPLEX
The LANCP utility is documented in the System Management Utilities
You will likely also want to set the appropriate console environment
variable(s) so that the network device is configured correctly from
the start. Depending on the platform, the SRM console environment
variable is typically named EWA0_MODE. Typical Alpha SRM console
commands would be:
EWA0_MODE ? ! Will respond with a list of supported settings.
(Adjust as appropriate for other device names.)
For more details on console commands, consult the Alphaserver DS20
documentation, or the DS20 Wizard.
For details of the negotiation capabilities of the various DE500
series NIC models, please see the OpenVMS FAQ.
