Wondered if it was really necessary to define an Advanced Server cluster alias in a VMS cluster that has only 1 Alpha.
We have a 4 node (3 Vax and 1 Alpha) cluster. Pathworks (of any flavor) is *not* running on any of the VAXen.
Since Advanced Server will not run on VAXen, why bother with the alias.
The alias name is required (you can't remove it) in a cluster - even a single-node cluster - because the entire cluster is considered a single domain entity. The name of the machine/computer account created when in a cluster, will be the same as the alias name.
Having an alias name shouldn't present any issues...
