1. Introduction

This memo defines a set of DECnet Phase IV extensions that have been created for the Internet MIB. It reflects changes which are the result of operational experience based on RFC 1289.

When used in conjunction with the structure of management information (STD 16, RFC 1155), the management information base for network management of TCP/IP-based internets (STD 17, RFC 1213) and the Simple Network Management Protocol (STD 15, RFC 1157), it will be possible to provide integrated network management of combined TCP/IP and DECnet Phase IV based internets. This document was produced by the DECnet Phase IV MIB working group of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF).

With the adoption of The Simple Network Management Protocol (STD 15, RFC 1157), the management information base for network management of TCP/IP-based internets (STD 17, RFC 1213), and the structure of

management information (STD 16, RFC 1155), by the Internet, and a large number of vendor implementations of these standards in commercially available products, it became possible to provide a higher level of effective network management in TCP/IP-based internets than previously available. With the growth in the use of these standards, network managers desired to use this environment as a base for providing integrated network management of multi-protocol networks.

DECnet Phase IV is one widely used protocol which often coexists in IP-based internets. This memo provides the mechanisms by which IP- based management stations can effectively manage DECnet Phase IV based systems (especially router products) in an integrated fashi...
