SCSNODE is a system parameter that specifies the name of the computer. This parameter is not dynamic. Specify SCSNODE as a string of up to six characters. Enclose the string in quotation marks.
Note that the maximum size of six characters is strictly enforced. SYSBOOT truncates the value of SCSNODE if the size of the system parameter is set to more than six characters. If the computer is in an OpenVMS Cluster, specify a value that is unique within the cluster. Do not specify the null string. If the computer is running DECnet for OpenVMS, the value must be the same as the DECnet node name. SCSNODE has the AUTOGEN and GEN attributes.
