IP address change needed on a AlphaServer DS10

First, identify the NIC you wish to change; use:

$ MC LANCP <ret>


Next, use the menu driven utility "TCPIP$CONFIG", to set your desired IP address etc:


Option 1 - core environment

Option 2 - Interfaces (then select your NIC or the IP Addr to change)

Option 2 - add/change a Primary address on *** (where *** is your NIC).

DS10 with SBS PCI Expansion

Version 7.1-2 is an older version of the OS. I will have to check, but I think that V7.2 will resolve this. What version of TCP/IP are you using? Back in the day when I supported TCP and VMS, there were some timing issues that causes odd behavior. If you can provide the details about your configuration, I can check and get back to you. If necessary, an examination of a forced crashdump may be needed.

A rare opportunity to work with VMS again!!

Good stuff.

Problems with booting

for any new hard disk first you have to create a partition table. Usually this is done when installing the OS. eg: for win98 you have to first create the partition in dos, format it, then run win98 setup. Now in WinXP this can be done when installing the OS. Similarly you may have to create the partition before runing UNIX setup. I Dont know the installation for UNIX. Usually the hard disk manufacturer supplies with some utility to do the partition. Like Disk Manager from Seagate.
