NAME

       dncopynodes - copy a list of nodes from a remote DEC system

SYNOPSIS

       dncopynodes <nodename> [ldif-dn]

DESCRIPTION

       This  program will generate a decnet.conf file by contacting a remote DECnet host (running
       VMS or RSX-11 probably) and doing the equivalent of "NCP COPY KNOWN NODES". The  resulting
       file can be copied over the existing decnet.conf file if you like.
       You do need a fully-functioning DECnet system before using this command but you don't need
       any nodes other than the executor defined  in  decnet.conf.   dncopynodes  will  copy  the
       executor information already there into the new file.
       The  program  copies  its  output  to standard output. It is strongly recommended that you
       review it before replacing an existing /etc/decnet.conf file.
       The node name can also be a node address if you don't  have  any  nodes  defined  in  your
       existing decnet.conf.
       DO  NOT  attempt  to redirect the output of dncopynodes directly into /etc/decnet.conf. It
       will fail and destroy your existing configuration file! Send it to a  temporary  file  and
       then copy it (see EXAMPLES)
       dncopynodes  can  also  create  an LDIF file suitable for importing into an LDAP database.
       With dnprogs 2.48 or later, DECnet programs can quiry this for node address information.

EXAMPLE

       # dncopynodes 3.34 > /tmp/decnet.conf
       # dncopynodes 3.34 dc=example,dc=com > /tmp/decnet.ldif
       # mv /tmp/decnet.conf /etc
