Adding a node in QNX4

We are trying to add a node to QNX4. We have installed the software
(i.e. OS, compiile, etc.). Installed an ethernet card (3com) and a
arcnet card (Corman). We have built the OS image and we have motified
the netmap to include the new node on all three nodes. We have verified
the connection to the network (e.g. wiring checks out as a active).
But, we can not see either of the exising nodes from the new node nor
can we see the new machines from either of the older machines.

What is happening? Or, at least where do I start from here.

Thanks,


Larry

Be sure all nodes have all three OS licenses.

Check out the Net -n# option… (as well as Dean’ suggestion)

I suspect all your current nodes are not configured to allow another “new”
node i.e. by default Net counts the number of available qnx licenses and
configures that as it’s maximum. If you haven’t used the -n option, you’ll
need to restart all your nodes (or at least the all the network stuff). If
you’re not memory constrained, it’s not a bad idea to use the -n option and
set the max to something larger than you think you’ll ever need :wink:

Thanks I will do some looking around. Dean referenced Licenses. I have
installed all the license diskettes that we have on all three computers. But, I
am not sure what license I need. The important parts of a licinfo -a are:
upg 0/0
osdev 0/2
os 0/3
qnx 0/7

Which license is it and do I have enough???

Thanks,

Just the qnx 0/7 licenses are needed for “Fleet” networking… you’re good
for 7 QNX nodes. If you don’t reboot, also make sure to run “license -r” on
the old nodes. What are osdev & os, I’m not familiar with those QNX
products… are they Corman licenses?

No, they are not Corman licenses!
