Display Transfer Advant OS for Master
we have installed 4 advant stations version 1.8/2 for Master , only one of them is up and running ( name as1) , others 3 (as2, as3, as4) has had problems because of some suddenly shutdown , we need to install advacommand software 1.8/2 from tape, after that we would need to transfer the display using display transfer , the question is ,
do we need to configure the /etc/host file of the advant station as2 just installed like as1 node (which it is the node up and running) for allowing to display transfer to work properly ?
Thanks for your support
Hostnames and IP-addresses should be set to appropriate and unique values.
The /etc/hosts file in the recipient need to list the donor by his true name/IP
The hosts file is prepopulated with a range of nodes and IP-addresses, by choosing among these names and IPs during installation no further config is necessary.
To change name & IP after install, use this command:
# set_parms initial
Try pinging donor from recipient. If ping works, Display Transfer should also succeed (passwords must still match for remote copy to work).
For the hardcore user, check out the /etc/init.d/netconf file. It contains the config, incl default gateway (if a change is needed). The ”sam” utility is also an option.
