Hi, gang. We're having a bit of trouble getting our token ring cards
configured as network interfaces. We've got two cards in each of our two
RS6ks, and when we try to do the 'minimal configuration and startup' of
TCP/IP, we get error messages like the following:
Method error (/etc/network/chgif):
0514-063 Cause not known.
ifconfig: error calling entry point for /etc/network/if_tr: I/O error
0821-103: The command /etc/ifconfig tr0 inet 22.214.171.124 up failed
0821-229 chgif: ifconfig command failed.
The status of "tr0" Interface in the current running system is uncertain.
/usr/bin/mktcpip: Problem with chdev command, return code = 1
This sort of nonsense is starting to get on my nerves. I tried to do
the setup thru smit, and when that failed, fell back on my SunOs knowlege
(what little there is of THAT), and tried to do it manually. (I know, that
doesn't get into ODM; I just wanted to see it _work_!) Still no luck.
I have a couple of IBM SE's who've also looked into the problem and
gotten the same errors that I have - could this be hardware, software
installation, or what?
Your help is, as always, mandatory!
