Configuring NICs for Clustering?

» close window

The Question is:

I have a DS10 in a LAVC Cluster, during startup of the machine, must be short
 before STACONFIG-I-QIO$CONFIGURE, both onboard NICS are enabled and the LEDs
 are active. From this time on a performance slowdown takes place (it take
 aprox. 6min. to join the c
luster!). With sys$examples:lavc$stop_bus.exe ewa0: (The network is connected
 to ewa1:) the wrong interface is turned off and everything works fine.
How can I change this misconfiguration, to get a clean startup ??
Best regards

The Answer is :

  The presence of two on-board NICs would imply an AlphaServer DS10L,
  or an AlphaServer DS10 or AlphaStation DS10 with an additional PCI
  NIC installed.  There are various NICs available for the AlphaServer
  DS10 and AlphaStation DS10, please see the OpenVMS FAQ for details
  of configuring the DE500 series.
  Please contact the support center, as there is apparently a network
  or low-level cluster configuration error here -- in particular, the
  OpenVMS Wizard would encourage proper configuration and termination
  of the physical network connections.  (Manual re-configuration of the
  available connections is generally not recommended -- please see
  topic (8185) for a similar discussion -- as these can potentially
  reduce the overall availability and reliability of the configuration.)
  EWA1: is a protocol connection on the EWA0: controller, the second
  network controller would be device EWB0:.
