Transfers port related configuration information from the base AIX Version 3 X.25 definitions to the new AIX/Link X.25 Version 1.1 LPP application definitions.
The cpx25 command can be used to convert port configuration from a x25sPortNumber definition to a sx25aPortNumber port. This command works from a saved version of the x25sPortNumber definition which is stored in the odm directory /etc/objrepos. The new sx25sPortNumber port should already be configured on a specific port on a specific adapter. The old port configurations are saved when the X.25 LPP is installed. The cpx25 command can be used to transfer port definitions from a single x25sPortNumber port to multiple sx25aPortNumber style ports.
- Unit conversions for timers such as the t1_timer and range conversions for parameters such as "ccitt", "fast_select" are done automatically.
- Because of the change in the CCITT standards from 1984 to 1988, there are a few instances where fields must be changed manually after the cpx25 command has run. Messages will be given in cases where the conversion was not possible.
- An error will be returned if either the old configuration is not found or if the new port has not been configured yet.
- Only AIX Version 3.2.5 supports the cpx25 command.
