SNACONTROL VERSION

PARAMETERS


START Starts an SNA node, link-level tracing, and SNA Transport
node tracing.

STATUS Displays the status of a specific SNA node.

STOP Stops an SNA node and all activity on the node.

STOPSESS Stops an LU (Logical Unit)-LU session without
stopping the SNA node.

TRACEOFF Turns off link-level tracing and SNA Transport
intrinsic tracing.

TRACEON Turns on link-level tracing and SNA Transport
intrinsic tracing.

VERSION Identifies the software version of SNA Transport.

nodename The one- to eight-character name of a configured SNA node.

tracetype The type of link-level tracing to be started.
The valid types are FULL and PARTIAL.

tracefile The name of the disk file that is to contain the trace data.

erroroption The action to be taken if SNA Transport detects an
irrecoverable internal error. The valid actions are SUB
(terminate SNA Transport) and SYS (system failure).

luname The one- to eight-character name of an LU.

stoptype How SNA Transport is to stop the node. The valid types
are K (kill), P (protocol), and Q (quiesce).

OPERATION

      HP 3000 users can communicate with an IBM SNA host system by
      using the Hewlett-Packard SNA Link product and the SNA services.
      The SNA services implement the upper layers of the SNA
      architecture.  SNA Link enables the HP 3000 to be a Physical
      Unit Type 2 (PU.T2) in an IBM SNA network.  So, the lower
      layers of SNA are implemented by running the services with
      SNA Link.


EXAMPLE(S)

      To start node IBMNODE and link-level tracing, enter:

      SNACONTROL START;NODE=IBMNODE;LINKTRACE

      To determine whether the line between the host and the HP 3000
      is up, enter:

      SNACONTROL STATUS

      To stop node PU8100F, enter:

      SNACONTROL STOP;NODE=PU8100F

      To stop the LU-LU session for LU1 on node ALPHA, enter:

      SNACONTROL STOPSESS;NODE=ALPHA;LUNAME=LU1

      To turn off link-level tracing for node PU8100F, enter:

      SNACONTROL TRACEOFF;NODE=PU8100F;LINKTRACE

      To turn on full link-level tracing for the only active SNA node,
      with trace data written to file TF01, enter:

      SNACONTROL TRACEON;LINKTRACE=FULL,TF01
