Thread: BOOTP server issue

  1. BOOTP server issue

    I keep seeing several dozen 400+ page job logs from
    user QTCP with user data QTBOOTP, all day long. The
    job logs consist entirely of two messages: TCP5665,
    followed by MCH3601. The TCP5665 diagnostic message is
    from module QTODBUTL, procedure
    qtod_IssueMessage_FPcT1PviT3N24. The message text
    reads "BOOTP server received request packet of 2 bytes
    that is not valid."

    I don't know anything about BOOTP. What would be
    causing these messages, and how do I go about tracking
    down the culprit?

    Thanks in advance.

    If a request to ?CHGBPA suggests AUTOSTART(*YES), then if BOOTP is
    not being used, then probably resolution can be had by issuing a request
    to CHGBPA AUTOSTART(*NO); then either ENDTCPSVR *BOOTP, or the next
    STRTCP will not autostart *BOOTP server. Apparently [I read somewhere]
    BOOTP remains only for legacy support; i.e. it is deprecated function,
    presumably replaced by DHCP.? I infer that, given a quote that DHCP
    requests may be "received by the BOOTP server since DHCP packets are the
    same [as] BOOTP packets with some additional information in the vendor
    specific fields"

    Otherwise the problem should be reported to your service provider.
    Although the /words/ expressing the errors were good, there is nothing
    like having the actual spooled joblog, or at least necessary snippets of
    the spooled joblog [as decided by the dev supporting the code, not as
    decided by the user, what is required]. A trace matching to the same
    time-frame of the job processing in error [i.e. matching joblog] is also
    typically required. And since there is an error for bad packets, a comm
    trace too.

    As far as I remember BOOTP is used for thin clients.
