The Question is:
The interface WE1 is the rest of an old real
network card. It had been removed since one year but there's still an interface
WE1 with local IP address 127.0.0.2.
When I do the command $ucx show interface, I don't see this interface but I've
got quite the same errors at boot and when I stop and restart
In the ucx$configuration.dat, I can see a line containing WE1 and 127.0.0.2
just under lines containing WE0 and LO0.
Can I safely delete this line ?
The Answer is :
Please consider reconfiguration of TCP/IP Services, using the provided
command procedure. (The OpenVMS Wizard does not normally recommend
direct modifications to any configuration data files underneath any
product, unless such access is specifically and explicitly documented.)
The command attempted accesses the volatile database, and is correctly
producing an error if there is no current device. The command needed
modifications to the static (also known as the permanent) database
would be SET CONFIGURATION [NO]INTERFACE.
Your TCP/IP Services version is woefully outdated, and is not and was
not recommended for use on any V7.* OpenVMS release. The (older)
recommended minimum version for OpenVMS V7.* was V4.2, and the current
version recommendation is a V5.* release.) Please move to a supported
configuration of TCP/IP Services.
For Standard Support and for Prior Version Support (PVS) dates and
details, please search for the string "PVS" or "support" within the
OpenVMS FAQ, as a URL is available there. The referenced webpage
contains support details of various product versions -- those that
have PVS offerings -- and support schedules.
The OpenVMS FAQ also has pointers to the current TCP/IP Services
product documentation website. The management command reference
will be of particular interest here, as will the management manual.
