The Question is:
How do I resolve a bind problem?
show service displays the following
TCPIP> sh service
Service Port Proto Process Address State
BIND 53 TCP,UDP TCPIP$BIND 0.0.0.0 Disabled
ESNMP 705 UDP ESNMP 0.0.0.0 Disabled
When I try to start bind service the following is displayed
TCPIP> enable service bind
%TCPIP-I-SERVSTARTED, BIND service already started
The Answer is :
Stop TCP/IP services entirely, and use the configuration menu
tool TCPIP$CONFIG to enable and start the BIND server.
The OpenVMS Wizard generally (and strongly) recommends against use
of the TCPIP utility ENABLE and DISABLE SERVICE commands, in favor of
using the provided TCPIP$*STARTUP and TCPIP$*SHUTDOWN procedures.
ENABLE SERVICE and DISABLE SERVICE are inviting, but can unfortunately
leave the associated component process(s) in an indeterminate state.
Do also ensure that your OpenVMS and TCP/IP Services ECOs are
all current, as well.
