Cause of NOLICENSE error? (DECnet)

» close window

The Question is:

From one day to another my customer can not connect to another Decnet nodes but
 he can connec trought TCP/IP
All needed licentes are active and loaded
When we try to start the net we have this problem:
$ @startnet
%SYSGEN-E-NOUNLOAD, driver is not unloadable
%SYSGEN-F-DEVACTIVE, device is active
%RUN-F-CREPRC, process creation failed
-SYSTEM-F-DUPLNAM, duplicate name
%DCL-I-SUPERSEDE, previous value of MOM$SYSTEM has been superseded
%DCL-I-SUPERSEDE, previous value of MOM$SYSTEM_NOSOFTID has been superseded
%DCL-I-SUPERSEDE, previous value of MOM$SYSTEM_SOFTID has been superseded
%NCP-W-INVPVA, Invalid parameter value , Physical address
Line = SVA-0
%NCP-W-OPEFAI, Operation failure
Circuit = SVA-0
%SYSTEM-F-NOLICENSE, operation requires software license
%NCP-I-NOINFO, No information in database
%RUN-F-CREPRC, process creation failed
-SYSTEM-F-DUPLNAM, duplicate name

%NCP-W-OPEFAI, Operation failure
%SYSTEM-F-NOLICENSE, operation requires software license
But everything under TCP/IP works.
What can i do

The Answer is :

  Based solely on the message:
%SYSTEM-F-NOLICENSE, operation requires software license
  You clearly lack a necessary license PAK.
  Please contact the Compaq Customer Support Center for assistance,
  as it appears that you do not have an appropriate DVNETEND (DECnet
  end-node) or DVNETRTG (DECnet routing) license PAK loaded on and
  available on this system.  This could be due to a problem with the
  license itself (eg: expired, insufficient units, etc), or due to
  the configuration of LMF databases (eg: all node-specific licenses
  must be registered in every LMF database present in a cluster), or
  due to some other configuration- or license-specific problem.
