Terminal Server Setup Procedure
Enter the following command:
$ @SYS$SYSROOT:[DECSERVER]DSVCONFIGYou will get a menu of options. Item 1 is useful to ``List known DECservers''. Item 3 is used to ``Swap an existing DECserver'' after you have changed out the unit. Five questions are asked. Some will have the values from the previous DECserver unit as defaults ... you should accept these defaults. For two questions you must supply values. You must know the DECnet name of the unit in question. This will be of the form RDLAT on RDCS terminal servers. The other necessary information is the Ethernet address of the new unit, which can be found on the back of the unit, and has the form 08-00-2B-05-50-0D.
After exiting the DSVCONFIG procedure, you must load the new unit as follows.
$ RUN SYS$SYSTEM:NCP NCP> SET LOGGING CONSOLE EVENT 0.3, 7 NCP> SET LOGGING CONSOLE STATE ON NCP> SET LOGGING MONITOR STATE ON ! messages produced by the download are now enabled NCP> LOAD NODE RDLATn !use the correct numberScan the messages produced and make sure no errors are reported. If there are errors, there may be hardware problems.
To test the unit and supply a configuration, we now use the TSM (Terminal Server Manager) software. This software is only available on nodes DAFFY and MICKEY, so be sure to log into the correct node. The SYSMANAGER account has the symbol TSM defined; the FIELD account must type:
TSM> SET SERVER rdlatn LOGIN PASSWORD ACCESS
TSM> ADD DSVCONFIG SERVERSIt will initially assume the correct default password.
Test the connection to the server:
TSM> USE DIRECTORY TSM> TEST SERVER rdlatnThe appropriate reply is no response (just another TSM> prompt), but do make sure that the lack of response springs from a correct test, and not a typo you've made! Now login to the server:
TSM> USE SERVER rdlatnThe following will test a few more functions.
TSM> TEST PORT COUNT 5 WIDTH 80 !produces a character pattern TSM> SHOW SERVICES !observe usual node list
If you are merely box swapping a known terminal server, the following will download all the necessary characteristics.
TSM> USE SERVER rdlatn TSM> SET PRIV TSM> <The command file sets the server's login password to our usual value, rather than to the server default. So, please do the following also, or you won't be able to USE SERVER RDLATn again.
!SYSTEM if in default state TSM> @RDLATn.TXT
TSM> USE DIRECTORY TSM> SET SERVER rdlatn LOGIN PASSWORD login-password
If you are connecting a brand new terminal server, for which there doesn't already exist a command file, use the following commands.
TSM> USE SERVER rdlatn TSM> SET PRIV TSM> <
!by default, SYSTEM TSM> DEFINE SERVER NAME RDLATn TSM> SET SERVER NAME RDLATn
TSM> @DISNEY_TRMSVR.TXT TSM> @PORTSELECTOR_CONNECTED.TXT
