DECnet NETCONFIG and TRA devices?

» close window

The Question is:

ES-40 OVMS 7.2-1 DECNET Phase IV
NETCONFIG defines devices TRA-0 through TRA-5
When booting and starting DECNET, OPCOM babbles about
non-existent TRA-* devices.
I known how to get rid of the definitions, but want to know what and why
the devices are.
Possibly a pseudo-device used by GALAXY - which I'm not using???

The Answer is :

  TRA is the DECnet Phase IV NCP name for a token-ring adapter.
  If you do not have one (or more) of these devices configured,
  please contact the Compaq Customer Support Center, expect to be
  asked for the output of CLUE CONFIG or similar information.
  OpenVMS Galaxy is expressly enabled (or disabled) by a system
  parameter.  If you are not using it, it is not enabled.
