Thanks for the replies (on and off list).  So, based on the link below, sent by a couple of folks, and reading carefully, I got it working.  The LCLINTNETA value was *SYS and I changed it to the local IP.  I also wrongly used the system name rather than the Local control point name for one of the controllers (wrongly assumed that I had changed it to match the system name).  Once I made the change it came right up.  SAVRST is working.

I appreciate the help.

Subject: SAVRST commands between 7.4 and 7.2

Can't seem to sort out the correct incantation for this. I found what seemed to be a good reference in this page: . I created the controllers and they both vary on with RCYPND and an error in qsysopr that says:

On the V7. 2 box: Controller VASICTL failed. Internal system failure.

On the V7.4 box: Contact not successful for controller VASI5CTL.
Internal system failure. (CPA5879)


STRMOD command failed because of route selection errors.

That STRMOD error rings a quiet bell in my head but I can't find any better instructions. When you do this once a decade or so, it's a challenge to sort out the issues (and it looks like options change). I think the systems are complaining that they can't find each other and I vaguely remember something about routes in the past. I am using TCPIP here and the two boxes are on the same physical network and same subnet.

What is missing?
