I ran into this one the other day. IBM first had me bounce the telnet server
using the HMC, and then when I could get to QINTER, change the IPL attribute
to not start TCP, and then change the boot program to start the subsystems
first, and then issue the STRTCP command down at the end of the program,
with a 2 minute delay. This is then followed by starting a couple of tcp
servers needed for the application software.
Mind you, this machine was upgraded in February. He told me TCP has been
flaky since it was rewritten for V6R1, and it was dumb luck this hadn't
There are also a few ptf's that are not part of a package yet.

Subject: TCP/IP starts twice in V7
This one has me stumped. Client machine keeps crashing the Telnet
Server. IBM says the reason is TCP is starting twice. Nice, except
there is not STRTCP command anywhere in the start up stream that we know
of (I retrieved the cl source of the start up program to be sure) IPL
attributes are set to start TCP.
