APPLIES TO

This article was previously published under Q171614


SYMPTOMS

The new LINKCFG.EXE program used to support command-line installation of link services was not properly saving registry entries when installing DCA SDLC or DCA X.25 link services.

Using identical configuration parameters to configure from both manager and linkcfg.exe resulted in these differences in the registry:

Manager
   47286:  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\DCASYNC\ 
           Parameters\ExtraParameters Data1LS DCAX251
   47335:  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\DCAX251\ 
           Parameters\ExtraParameters DeviceName DCADL$03
   47348:  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\DCAX251\ 
           Parameters\ExtraParameters OSVCRng 0048-0050

Linkcfg
   47286:  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\DCASYNC\ 
           Parameters\ExtraParameters Data1LS 
   47335:  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\DCAX251\ 
           Parameters\ExtraParameters DeviceName      
   47348:  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\DCAX251\ 
           Parameters\ExtraParameters OSVCRng 
                

CAUSE

The Device Parameter Strings were overwritten by the un-initialized configuration buffer.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SNA Server, versions 3.0 and 3.0 SP1. 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):
