110927 DECserver Load/Dump Support for RSTS/E Version: 1.0-08
Submitted by: Terry Kennedy, St. Peter's College, Jersey City, NJ
Operating System: RSTS/E V9.7 Source Language: BASIC-PLUS-2, MACRO-11
Memory Required: 13KW Software Required: DECserver Load Image (VMS or
RSX kit) Hardware Required: One or more DECservers Keywords:
Networking, System Management - RSTS/E, Utilities - RSTS/E
Abstract: RSTS/E MOP Server performs the following functions:
. Provides the operating software for DECservers upon
request by the server.
. Receives crash dumps from DECservers upon request by the
server. Such crash dumps are in the proper format for
analysis by Digital Equipment Corporation software support.
. Logs all requested and successful load/dump requests to
the system console (in DECnet/E event format) and to a log
RSTS/E MOP Server can be configured to accept or reject
requests from servers not in the configuration file. This
can be used to restrict loading to a subset of the servers
configured on the Ethernet. Additionally, a
user-configurable delay is available so that a supported
load host has a chance to load the server first, with
RSTS/E MOP Server assuming a backup mode of operation. The
default load image name for the server is supported via a
mapping table which maps the image name requested by the
server into a valid RSTS/E file specification. Also included
is a demonstration program, CNODE, which implements an interface
identical to the VMS CONNECT NODE command, which allows a
RSTS user to establish a session with the maintenance port on
Release notes are distributed with each order.
Restrictions: Operating System RSTS/E V9.4 or later is required.
Executable and/or object
code is included.
