addnode(8)							    addnode(8)

Name
       addnode - add or change an entry in the nodes database

Syntax
       /etc/addnode node [ options ]

Description
       The  command  adds a new node entry to or modifies an existing entry in
       the nodes database that is used by DECnet.  The	command	 provides  the
       information  that  is  necessary	 for your ULTRIX node to be capable of
       down-line loading and up-line dumping a particular  target  node.   The
       node  address is the address of the target node.	 If the target node is
       a DECnet node, then the node address is mandatory and the node name  is
       optional.  If the target node is not a DECnet node, for example, a ter‐
       minal server, you should specify only the node name and omit  the  node
       address.

       If you do not specify an absolute pathname for secondary load, tertiary
       load, system load, diagnostic load, or dump file, the default path,  is
       used during the load or dump process.

       A  node address is a decimal integer in the range of 1 to 1023 for sin‐
       gle area networks, or has the format a.n for multiarea networks,	 where
       a  is  the  network area number (a decimal integer in the range of 1 to
       63) and n is the node number (a decimal integer in the range  of	 1  to
       1023).

       The  node  name is the node name of the target node, can be from 1 to 6
       alphanumeric characters, including at least 1 alphabetic character.

Options
       -A   Uses the specified host address as that of the target node

       -D   Creates an up-line memory dump of the target node in the specified
	    file

       -N   Uses the specified name as that of the target node

       -P   Adds the specified nodes to the permanent nodes database

       -c   Uses  the  specified service and device number (UBA-n or QNA-n) as
	    the circuit to the target node

       -d   Sends the specified diagnostic load image to the target node

       -h   Uses the specified address as the Ethernet address of  the	target
	    node

       -l   Sends the specified system load image to the target node

       -p   Uses the specified service and password to access the target node

       -s   Sends the specified secondary load file to the target node

       -t   Sends the specified tertiary load file to the target node

Examples
       % /etc/addnode mynode -h aa-00-03-00-01-19 \ <RET>
       -s /usr/download/secondary \ <RET>
       -t /usr/download/tertiary \ <RET>
       -l system <RET>

       This  command  adds the node mynode, which is not a DECnet node, to the
       nodes   database,   which   has	 the   Ethernet	   physical    address
       aa-00-03-00-01-19.   This command also specifies the file names for the
       secondary loader, the tertiary loader, and  the	system	loader.	  Note
       that  a path name is not specified for the system loader; consequently,
       the loader uses the default path when searching for that file.
       # /etc/addnode 44.71 -h aa-00-03-00-01-20 <RET>

       This command adds the DECnet node 44.71 to the  nodes  database,	 which
       has the Ethernet physical address aa-00-03-00-01-20.
