Configuring SCO OpenServer 5 MDI drivers
SCO OpenServer 5 MDI drivers are configured
with the Network Configuration Manager,
which uses a Network Driver Software Package (NDSP)
that includes the standard DSP files
such as Driver.o, Master,
plus additional files that provide configuration information
to the network driver installation and configuration framework.
The information in this chapter supplements
the information in:
The MDI-specific files that are included
in the NDSP are:
Adapter Options File(s) (AOF)
describes an adapter class
and define the configurable parameters
that are used by drivers in that class.
The AOFs are located in the AOF subdirectory
of the directory that contains the driver DSP.
These files can be given any sensible name;
if the driver has a single AOF file,
it is usually named to match the driver name that is specified
in the Master and System files.
If there are multiple files,
other names can be used.
For example, the shrk driver includes
the osi2300, shrk,
and snapper AOF files.
lkcfg shell script
obtains the network driver configuration
that is selected by the user
and handles link kit configuration
and any special-case setup that is required
such as calling download utilities.
The lkcfg script is customized for each driver
and included in the directory with the driver DSP.
Optional acfg binary
detects network driver configuration information
for ISA bus adapters
and may write configurations back to
the devices NVRAM.
The acfg binary is generated
from the acfg source and Makefile
to the driver's DSP directory.
