Purpose

The ATTACH NP command is used to create the representation of the specified NP. ATTACH is never required for an NP since no allocation or network communication is involved: essentially, it is supported for operational consistency with CPs. Information about the NP can be obtained using the DISPLAY NP command.

Syntax



where:

npname
An EBCDIC character string from three to six characters long, used to identify this network connection within TDP. It consists of the two characters 'NP' followed by a one to four character hexadecimal value. This value is arbitrary, although it must be unique for all currently started NPs for this TDP. It could be the same as the hexadecimal portion of the 'cpname' of a CP.

Usage Notes

The ATTACH command can only be used when the specified NP is not known to TDP.

ATTACH NP performs no required processing and is provided for operational consistency with CPs.

Example: ATTACH NP

ATTACH NP2

Completion Message

The following message confirms that the command has been accepted and validated:

TDP1363 ATTACH COMMAND ACCEPTED FOR NP2
The following message subsequently confirms that the command has been completed:
TDP1355 "NP2" HAS BEEN ATTACHED
