Comparing parameters should be done before I go to the network folks anyway since I can tell them all systems look the same if I still have an issue.

I agree that comparing every network parameter is not a bad idea. And it's probably faster than trying to coordinate with your network folks.
There is a 'ping' feature available on your HMC. Perhaps it was called 'test network' or some such thing.

Sent by: midrange-l-bounces@xxxxxxxxxxxx
I have 5 frames with 5 HMCs. 4 of the 5 HMCs can connect to IBM's
website. I use this site to download firmware. I do have the CDs, but I
just want to figure out why I can't connect on this HMC. I receive error
HSCF0049 and the description of this error is so generic that it does not
point me in any direction for problem analysis. Should I check every
network parameter on the HMC to see which one is incorrect? Should I
discuss this with our network folks? Any suggestions on how to proceed
would be appreciated.
