Check DSPHDWRSC *CMN to verify you have the correct resource name.
For a 2617 you will see something like this where it's CMN03:
Resource        Type  Status                Text 
CMB01           918B  Operational           Combined function IOP
  LIN01         2612  Operational           Comm Adapter 
    CMN01       2612  Operational           V.24 Port Enhanced 
  LIN02         2612  Operational           Comm Adapter 
    CMN02       2612  Operational           V.24 Port 
CC01            2617  Operational           Combined function IOP
  LIN03         2617  Operational           LAN Adapter 
    CMN03       2617  Operational           Ethernet Port 
  LIN04         605A  Operational           Virtual Controller  

Try something like this:

          SSAP((04 1496 *SNA) (06 1496 *NONSNA) (AA 1480 *NONSNA) (C8 1496 
          TEXT('Ethernet LAN - 10Mb/sec') 

Assign your own Adapter address (> 020000000000) if you are doing anything 
that depends on that address (SNA CA 802.3 connection - like Netsoft 
router).  If the card is ever replaced you won't end up with a different 
adapter address.
If you may mix Tokenring and Ethernet, specifically getting into 
situations where you may have an issue with Most Significant Bit vs Least 
Significant Bit addressing, an adapter address that translates tthesame 
either way is useful.  I often use 6600000000FF.

If you don't need both Ethernet standards (no need for *IEEE8023), just 
use ETHSTD(*ETHV2).  Will give you some performance improvement.
Likewise, if only using TCPIP (no IPX, SNA  or other protocols) specifying 
TCPONLY(*YES) will improve performance.

        Subject:        creating my first ethernet line description

I am trying to create my first ethernet line description.  So far it 
been as much fun as I was looking forward to.

A new ethernet controller in a new AS/400 Model 400 running V4R2.

I create the line like this:


I try to vary the line on and get message CPD27CD "line not varied on" 
reason code 2006 which translates to "IOP type conflict"

Does anyone know what I might be doing wrong?

Thanks a bunch,
