Error 2 Stops OTN Installation of DCA Token Ring Adapters

Article ID: 100516

This article was previously published under Q100516


When performing an over-the-network (OTN) installation for LAN Manager on an MS-DOS workstation using DCA's token ring adapter (IRMATRAC), the installation copies all files from the server onto the MS-DOS workstation, then displays this error message:

An error occurred while reading the file: PROTOCOL.INI
Error Code:2


There is an error in the [IRMATR] section in NSETUP.INF file on server (LANMAN\NINSTALL). The NSETUP.INF file contains information for finding the adapter driver (IRMATR.DOS) and the PROTOCOL.INI, but its PROTOCOL.INI path in section [IRMATR] is defined: RIVERS\TOKENTNG\IRMATRAC\PROTOCOL.INI. The "TOKENTNG" should be TOKENRNG.

"Error Code:2" is an extended error message number that means "file not found." These errors are listed in the "MS-DOS Programmer's Reference."


Correct the PROTOCOL.INI path in NSETUP.INF, then perform the OTN installation again.
