DECnet-Plus BCKTRNSFAIL error?

» close window

The Question is:

DECnet-Plus over IP and backtranslation failures...
Some sites are connected via DECnet-Plus over IP, all running independant local
 namespaces; searchpath: domain, local. BIND is set-up, including working
 reverse lookups. What needs to be done to avoid the
"Terminal name: _RTAx:, node.dom.CH::username
...Status: %IPC-E-BCKTRNSFAIL, failure on the back translate address request"
(and similar messages while SET HOST node.dom.CH)
No luck browsing the DECnet-Plus and TCP/IP docs...
Any hint welcome!

The Answer is :

  The OpenVMS FAQ section "MISC6.  What does "failure on back translate
  address request" mean?" might be of interest, as might topics here
  such as 2530 and 3793.
