DECnet-Plus and stale routing data?

» close window

The Question is:

We have two Alpha servers running Open VMS 7.2-1 and DECNET/OSI) connected by
 modems(leased line) and routers(configured to support DECNET and IP protocol).
 Now we want to change that configuration and install LAN/bridge modems instead
 (no routers). The p
roblem is, after switching them into the network we can see the nodes as
 reachible on both sides, but we can not access them with the "set host"
 command.In adition we can see that both machines still expect the previous
 router as next hop in the circuit.
Do we need some reconfiguration of DECNET/OSI , because with DECNET Phase IV,
 this configuration worked fine.
Thank You in advance,

The Answer is :

  You will want to flush the caches or otherwise reload the routers.
