Enhancements to DLSSTAT for 802.2 Distributed Links

Article ID: 170424

Article Last Modified on 6/28/2004



APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft SNA Server 2.11 Service Pack 1
  • Microsoft SNA Server 2.11 Service Pack 2
  • Microsoft SNA Server 3.0 Service Pack 4
  • Microsoft SNA Server 4.0



This article was previously published under Q170424


SYMPTOMS

Under SNA Server, the DLSSTAT utility shows which SNA Server computer(s) are currently using distributed link services. For example

SnaDlc1 (DLC 802.2 Link Service #1) is used by:
\\servername

SnaDlc2 (DLC 802.2 Link Service #2) is used by:

SnaDlc3 (DLC 802.2 Link Service #3) is used by:
\\servername
\\servername2


where the \\servername(s) are the SNA Server running the remote link service(s) that currently have an active connection through the distributed link.

However, in complex 802.2 distributed link environments, support personnel may want to know more details about the 802.2 connections, including:

  • name of remote connection
  • remote adapter address and SAP address
  • Token Ring source routing information


STATUS

This problem was corrected in the latest SNA Server version 3.0 U.S. Service Pack. For information on obtaining this Service Pack, query on the following word in the Microsoft Knowledge Base (without the spaces):

S E R V P A C K


MORE INFORMATION

An enhancement is planned for SNA Server 3.0 SP2. Dlsstat.exe and the SNA Server DLC link service (Snadlc.dll) will be implemented to display more information about the state of distributed links. With the updated Dlsstat.exe and Snadlc.dll applied, DLSSTAT displays the following additional information:

   SnaDlc1 (DLC 802.2 Link Service #1) is used by:
   \\servername TOKEN1    400012201000 04    02 101 1 1fe 2 131

   SnaDlc2 (DLC 802.2 Link Service #2) is used by:

   SnaDlc3 (DLC 802.2 Link Service #3) is used by:
   \\servername  TOKEN1   400012201000 04    02 101 1 1fe 2 131
   \\servername2 TOKEN1   400012102000 04    02 101 1 1fe 3 2dc
                

where

   TOKEN1 = connection name on remote server
   4000122201000  04  = remote adapter address and remote SAP
   02 101 1 1fe 2 131 = Token Ring source routing information
