LANCP Permanent Device Database
The LANCP permanent device database is a database that contains information about LAN devices that exist on the system. The database contains a single entry for each LAN device that exists on the system; each entry contains device information and MOP downline load counters information.
The LANCP volatile device database is populated with information from the permanent device database when the LANACP LAN server process is started. Modifications to the permanent device database only become valid after the LANACP LAN server process is restarted. To make current modifications to the device database, use the volatile device database.
Viewing the Database
To view the permanent device database, use the LANCP LIST DEVICE command. (To view the volatile database, use the LANCP SHOW DEVICE command; these commands share the same qualifiers).
|LIST DEVICE/CHARACTERISTICS||Displays status and related information about the device||

|LIST DEVICE/VLAN||Displays a list of IEEE 802.1Q tags that are configured on the switch port connected to the specified physical LAN device. LANCP listens for the GVRP packets that contain the configuration information and displays the configured tags. The switch periodically sends GVRP (GARP VLAN Registration Protocol) (GARP = Generic Attribute Registration Protocol) packets to provide VLAN configuration information in compliance with the IEEE 802.1Q specification. If GVRP is not configured on the switch, or if the LAN device is not connected to a switch, this command displays only the list of tags that the VLAN drive has configured.||
Example of LANCP SHOW DEVICE/VLAN

Changing the Database
To add a device to the volatile device database or modify an entry for a device there, use the DEFINE DEVICE command (for the volatile database, use the SET DEVICE command; these commands share the same qualifiers).
|DEFINE DEVICE/ALL||Sets data for all LAN devices. If you specify a device name, all matching LAN devices are selected.|
|Allows some device-specific parameters to be adjusted. These are useful for debug purposes or for experiments while doing performance measurements. Like other LANCP commands which affect devices, this command requires SYSPRV privilege. Specify the negated qualifer to clear all device-specific parameter data. These functions are described in a text file on the system, SYS$HELP:LAN_COUNTERS_AND_FUNCTIONS.TXT.|
|DEFINE DEVICE/DLL or DEFINE DEVICE/MOPDLL=(enable-option, exclusive-option, size-option, knownclientsonly-option)
/DLL and /MOPDLL values
Specify ENABLE or DISABLE to indicate that MOP downline load service should be enabled or disabled for the device. Specify EXCLUSIVE to indicate that no other provider of MOP downline load service is allowed on the specified LAN device at the same time as LANACP. Specify NOEXCLUSIVE to indicate that the LAN MOP downline load service can coexist with other implementations (in particular, the DECnet Phase IV and DECnet Plus implementations that include MOP support). Note that when you select NOEXCLUSIVE, LANACP responds only to MOP downline load requests directed to nodes defined in the LAN node database. Use SIZE=value to specify the size in bytes of the file data portion of each downline load message. The permitted range is 246 to 1482 bytes. The default value is 246 bytes, which should allow any client to load properly. Note that some clients may not support the larger size. The recommended size for better load performance and less server overhead is the largest size that results in successful loads of all clients. The 1482 value is derived from the maximum packet size for CSMA/CD (Ethernet) of 1518 bytes less the 802e header and CRC (26 bytes) and MOP protocol overhead (10 bytes). You can override the size on a per-node basis. See Help on the LANCP SET NODE commands for details. Specify KNOWNCLIENTSONLY to indicate that MOP downline load requests should be serviced only for clients defined in the LAN permanent node database. When you select NOKNOWNCLIENTSONLY, LANACP searches the LAN$DLL directory for any images requested by clients that are not defined in the LAN node database. Note that this option is not available when NOEXCLUSIVE mode has been selected. When NOEXCLUSIVE mode is selected, LANACP services MOP downline load requests only for clients defined in the LAN node database.
|Provides the MOP downline load service settings for the device. Note that defaults apply to creation of an entry in the device database. If an existing entry is being modified, fields not specified remain unchanged.|
|DEFINE DEVICE/MAX_BUFFERS=value||Sets the maximum number of receive buffers to be allocated and used by the LAN driver for the LAN device.|
|DEFINE DEVICE/MIN_BUFFERS=value||Sets the minimum number of receive buffers to be allocated and used by the LAN driver for the LAN device.|
|DEFINE DEVICE/TAG=value||Specifies the IEEE 802.1Q tag for the VLAN device. value is the IEEE 802.IQ tag number.|
Use SIZE=value to specify the size of the trace buffer in entries, each 32 bytes. The default is 2048 entries. The permitted range is 256 to 1000000. The size MOD 3 encodes the amount of packet data to include, either 35 bytes, 66 bytes, 97 bytes, or the entire packet. Use MASK=(value1,value2) to specify the trace mask to select which type of entries should be collected in the trace buffer. The first 32 bits consist of events common to most LAN drivers. The second 32 bits consist of events specific to the LAN driver for the specified device. Use STOP=(value1,value2) to specify the trace mask to select which type of entries should stop tracing. When a trace entry is made that matches one of the bits in the stop mask, the trace mask is cleared so that you can look at the trace data accumulated so far.
|Provides the LAN driver trace settings for the device. By default, most LAN drivers do tracing of error conditions and state changes. Tracing is controlled by an event mask that selects the events to trace, a stop mask that specifies when to stop tracing, and the size of the trace buffer.
You can change tracing settings at any time. The LAN driver allocates the trace buffer from non-paged pool. You can calculate the amount of pool needed by multiplying the number of entries by the size of each entry, 32-bytes. The impact of tracing on the system is negligible for error and state change events, more significant when all events are selected, and very significant when full packet tracing is enabled. The command SHOW DEVICE/TRACE displays trace results as well as the trace mask.
|DEFINE DEVICE/UPDATE||Adds LAN devices that are not currently in the LAN permanent device database
to that database. The initial entry for the device uses default values for all parameters. To update the permanent database with current information from the volatile database, use the DEFINE DEVICE command with the /VOLATILE qualifier. You can combine the /UPDATE and /VOLATILE qualifiers in a single DEFINE DEVICE command.
|Specifies the physical LAN device that is to host the VLAN device. The /NOVLAN_DEVICE qualifier requests deactivation of the VLAN device. When deactivating the VLAN device, the device-name is not required because the VLAN driver knows which device is hosting the VLAN device. Note that a VLAN device cannot be deactivated if any applications continue to use the device.|
|DEFINE DEVICE/AUTONEGOTIATE (default)
|Enables or disables the use of auto-negotiation to determine the link settings. You may need to disable link auto-negotiation when connected to a switch or device that does support auto negotiation.|
|DEFINE DEVICE/FLOW_CONTROL (default)
|Enables flow control on a LAN device.|
|DEFINE DEVICE/FULL_DUPLEX (default)
|Enables full-duplex operation of a LAN device. Before full-duplex operation results from the use of this qualifier, additional device or network hardware setup may be required. Some devices may be enabled for full-duplex operation by default. Some devices may not allow the setting to be changed.
The /NOFULL_DUPLEX qualifier disables full-duplex operation.
|DEFINE DEVICE/JUMBO (default)
|Enables the use of jumbo frames on a LAN device. Only Gigabit Ethernet NICs support jumbo frames.|
Acceptable values are AUI (10Base2, 10Base5), TWISTEDPAIR (10BaseT), and AUTOSENSE (reperform the limited autosense algorithm). The default value is AUTOSENSE.
|Selects the cable connection. Normally, the selection is made during device initialization using a limited autosensing algorithm that selects twisted pair, but fails over to AUI (Attachment Unit Interface) if twisted pair does not appear to be functional. Thereafter, a cabling change would require a reboot of the system to take effect. This command allows you to change the selection without rebooting.
Some devices, such as the DE435, require a jumper change on the Ethernet card to switch between 10Base2 and 10Base5 (thinwire and thickwire). Other devices, such as the DE434, DE436, and DE500, have only twisted pair connections.
Valid values are 10, 100, 1000, 10000, or autonegotiate; the last choice, autonegotiate, selects the 10 Mb/s for Ethernet, 100 Mb/s for Fast Ethernet, 1000 Mb/s for Gigabit Ethernet, and 10000 Mb/s for 10-Gigabit Ethernet. If you select autonegotiate, the LAN driver repeats autonegotiation.
|Sets the speed of the LAN.|
|LAN Failover Devices|
|DEFINE DEVICE/DISABLE||Disables the devices in a LAN Failover set. When disabled, LAN devices can be added to or deleted from the Failover set.|
|DEFINE DEVICE/ENABLE||Enables a Failover set, which activates the Logical LAN device. The LAN Failover driver selects a LAN device from the LAN Failover set as the active device and then allows I/O to the Logical LAN device.|
|Specifies the members of a LAN Failover set.|
|DEFINE DEVICE/PRIORITY=value||Sets the failover priority of a LAN device. Priority is given to the LAN failover device with the highest priority when choosing the active LAN device. When a LAN device with a higher priority becomes available, a failover transition to the newly available device is performed. This allows a system manager to set a preferred device by setting one LAN device to a higher priority than others. The LAN failover driver uses the preferred device when it is available.|
STANDARD is the Ethernet maximum packet size of 1519 bytes. JUMBO is the oversize packet size available with the Gigabit Ethernet devices. It is allowed only if all the LAN devices in the LAN failover set are Gigabit devices.
|Sets the packet size of the LAN failover device. Note that the size specified for the LAN failover device overrides the size set on
the members of the LAN failover set; that is, the JUMBO frame setting of a LAN device is of no consequence when the size is determined for the LAN failover device.
|DEFINE DEVICE/RING_PURGER||Enables the ring purger process of the FDDI device.|
|DEFINE DEVICE/TOKEN_ROTATOR||Sets the requested token rotation time for the FDDI ring.|
|DEFINE DEVICE/TOKEN_TIMEOUT||Sets the restricted token timeout time for the FDDI ring.|
|DEFINE DEVICE/TRANSMIT_TIMEOUT||Sets the valid transmission time for the FDDI device.|
|Token Ring Devices|
|DEFINE DEVICE/AGING_TIMER=value||Sets the amount of time in seconds to age Token Ring source routing cache entries before marking them stale. This timer expires when no traffic is sent to or received from the remote node in this amount of time. The default value is 60 seconds.
Increase this value when idle connections bounce between the stale and known states. Setting this value too low may cause unnecessary explorer traffic to traverse the LAN.
|DEFINE DEVICE/CACHE_ENTRIES=value||Sets the number of entries to reserve for caching Token Ring source routing address entries. The default value is 200 entries. If your system directly communicates to a large number of systems, you may want to increase this number.|
|Specifies that the Token Ring device is to participate in the Monitor Contention process when it joins the ring. The /NOCONTENDER qualifier, directs the device not to challenge the current ring server.|
|DEFINE DEVICE/DISCOVERY_TIMER=value||Sets the number of seconds to wait for a reply from a remote node when performing the source Token Ring routing route discovery process. The default value is 2 seconds.
If you have nodes that respond slowly on your extended LAN, you may need to increase this number to reduce the amount of explorer traffic that traverses your LAN.
|DEFINE DEVICE/EARLY (default)
|Enables Early Token Release on the device. The /NOEARLY qualifier, disables Early Token Release.|
|DEFINE DEVICE/MAP=(MULTICAST_ADDRESS=address, FUNCTIONAL_ADDRESS=address)
|Maps a standard multicast address to a functional address. Token ring devices do not support IEEE 802 standard globally defined group addresses. They do support functional addresses. A functional address is a locally administered group address that has 31 possible values. Each functional address sets one bit in the third through sixth byte of the address and bytes 1 and 2 are 03-00 (C0:00
in bit reversed format). The /NOMAP=(MULTICAST_ADDRESS=address) qualifier, clears the mapping established for the specified address.
|DEFINE DEVICE/MEDIA=value||Selects the type of cable media used to connect the adapter to the Token Ring Media Access Unit (MAU) for devices that do not automatically detect this. Acceptable values for this are either unshielded twisted pair (UTP) or shielded twisted pair (STP). The default value is STP.|
|DEFINE DEVICE/SOURCE_ROUTING (default) /NOSOURCE_ROUTING||Enables source routing on the Token Ring device. If you only have one ring in your LAN or you use transparent bridging, use the /NOSOURCE_ROUTING qualifier to turn off source routing.|
|DEFINE DEVICE/SPEED=value||Sets the speed of the Token Ring LAN. Valid values are either 4 or 16, indicating 4 megabits per second or 16 megabits per second. The default value for Token Ring is 16, unless the LAN adapter supports a nonvolatile mechanism for setting this parameter.|
|DEFINE DEVICE/SR_ENTRY=(LAN_ADDRESS=address, RI=routing-information)
|Statically defines a specific source-routed route for a specific node. The default value is no routes specified. This caching remains valid while used or until the aging timer expires.
Use this qualifier only as a last resort when isolating communication failures on extended LAN topologies. The /NOSR_ENTRY=(LAN_ADDRESS=address) qualifier, clears the previously defined static source routed route. The address is a standard 6-byte LAN address (given as hexadecimal byte characters separated by hyphens), which specifies the canonical form of the address. Using a colon as the separator character indicates the bit-reversed form of the address. The routing-information is the source routing field, specified as a series of two-byte hexadecimal characters (each byte separated by a hyphen). The field consists of a two-byte routing control field followed by up to 14 two-byte segment identifiers, each containing the ring number and the bridge number used in the hop. See Default Functional Address Mapping for Token Ring Devices.
|DEFINE DEVICE/ATMADDRESS=LES=([NO]LES=the ATM server)||Sets the LAN emulation server (LES) address for asynchronous transfer mode (ATM). Usually the address is not user specified, and this qualifier is used only if you want a specific address. By default the address is determined by software from the configuration server for the LES.|
|DEFINE DEVICE/ARP=(ARP=atm_arp_server)||Sets the address resolution protocol (ARP) server address for Classical IP over ATM. This qualifier is required before a LIS is enabled if the local host is not the ARP server.|
|DEFINE DEVICE/CLIP||Sets the Classical Internet Protocol (CLIP) over ATM (RFC1577). The CLIP qualifier implements a data-link level device as a client and/or a server in a logical IP subnet (LIS). This allows the IP protocol to transmit Ethernet frames over the ATM network. The /CLIP = ENABLE command causes the system to join the LIS. The /CLIP = DISABLE command causes the client to leave the logical IP subnet. Note that a LIS requires a server, and there must be only one server for each subnet. Communication between subnets can only be performed by a router. There can only be one client for each ATM adapter. The syntax is as follows:
DEFINE DEVICE/CLIP =(ip_subnet=a.b.c.d, ! IP address of the CLIP client ip_address=a.b.c.d, ! the subnet mask of the CLIP client parent=devnam, ! the parent device name name="ip subnet name", ! name for the LIS tp aid in operations and ! diagnostics enable, disable ! joins or leaves the subnet type = client|server) ! starts up a classical IP server and client
|DEFINE DEVICE/ELAN||The /ELAN qualifier has two values: enable and disable. With /ELAN=ENABLE along with the keyword STARTUP, the LAN emulation is loaded when LANACP starts. With /ELAN=DISABLE, the same parameters used with ENABLE can be invoked. The /ELAN qualifier’s syntax is as follows:
DEFINE DEVICE/ELAN =(parent=parent device, name="ELAN NAME to join", size=1516 type=CSMACD Enable, Disable, description = "string")
|DEFINE DEVICE/PVC||Sets the permanent virtual circuit (PVC) to be used by a Classical IP over ATM client. This is an optional qualifier. The list of PVCs is defined for use by CLIP clients. This command should be used before enabling the CLIP client. The PVC has to be set up manually in the ATM switch.||
LANCP> DEFINE DEVICE/CONTENDER/MEDIA=UTP/NOEARLY/SOURCE ICA0
Enables monitor contention, UTP cable media, source routing and disables early token release for Token Ring device ICA0.
LANCP> DEFINE DEVICE/MEDIA=TWI EWB0
Sets the media type to twisted pair for the second Tulip Ethernet device, EWB0.
LANCP> DEFINE DEVICE EXA0/MOPDLL=ENABLE
Enables MOP downline load service for device EXA0, leaving the remaining MOPDLL parameters unchanged.
LANCP> DEFINE DEVICE EXA0/MOPDLL=(ENABLE,EXCLUSIVE,SIZE=1482)
Enables MOP downline load service for device EXA0, in exclusive mode with the data transfer size of 1482 bytes, leaving the remaining MOPDLL parameters unchanged.
LANCP> DEFINE DEVICE EXA0/MOPDLL=(ENABLE,NOEXCLUSIVE) LANCP> DEFINE DEVICE FXA0/MOPDLL=(ENABLE,EXCL,KNOWN)
These commands enable LANACP MOP downline load service for:
