Re-initializes the attributes of an X.25 port.
chsx25 [ -l Name ] [ -a Attribute=Value . . . ] [ -p ParentName ] [ -P | -T ] [ -q ] [ -w ConnectionLocation ] [ -f File ]
The chsx25 command re-initializes the attributes of the specified X.25 port.
|-l Name||Specifies the defined port, indicated by the Name parameter, in the customized devices object class.|
|-p ParentName||Specifies the new parent device logical name from the customized devices object class. This flag is used only when changing the parent of the port.|
|-w ConnectionLocation||Specifies the new connection location on the parent where this child device is to be defined. This flag is used only when changing the connection location of the port.|
Note: ConnectionLocation value corresponds to the port number where X.25 is configured.
|-a Attribute=Value||Specifies the X.25 port attributes and their values. You can either use one -a flag for a string of Attribute=Value pairs and enclose the string in single quotation marks, or use one -a flag for each pair.|
Two attributes are accepted by the chsx25 command; the network_id and country_prefix.
|network_id|| Network identifier. This attribute may have one of the following values:
|country_prefix||The data country/geographical area codes as defined in CCITT-X.121 Annex D. The AIX/V3 X.25 Communications Cookbook also contains a listing of the country codes under Appendix C.|
|-f File||Reads the needed flags from the File parameter. The user should not include the -a Attribute=Value entries within File. All attributes should be specified on the command line.|
|-P||Changes the characteristics of the device permanently in the customized devices object class without actually changing the device. The change can be made to the database with the -P flag; and then by restarting the system, the changes will be applied to the port. This flag cannot be used with the -T flag.|
|-T||Changes the characteristics of the device temporarily without changing the customized devices object class for the current start of the system. This flag cannot be used with the -P flag.|
|-h||Displays the command usage message.|
|-q||Suppresses the command output messages from standard output and standard error.|
