If you experience an abend on startup, here's a workaround.

Workaround:
Rename SYS:\SYSTEM\DBNET6.NLM and restart the server.

Solution

Note: The author has updated this article with an important correction. The original solution read:
Create C:\NWSERVER\DBNET.CFG file (Blank)
However it was found that sometimes DBNET6.NLM does not load correctly after creating a blank DBNET.CFG

Here is the corrected solution:

Create C:\NWSERVER\DBNET.CFG

Populate the following details in DBNET.CFG file in the same format as follows. You can look for exact details to enter by going into INETCFG as steps given below.

  1. LOAD INETCFG
  2. View Configuration
  3. All INETCFG Commands
Sample DBNET.CFG File:
[dbmlid]
mlid=B57.LAN NAME=B57_1_EII FRAME=ETHERNET_II SLOT=10013 SPEED=100FD RXBUFFERS=200

[dbip]
addr=164.99.12.150
mask=255.255.0.0
defr=164.99.12.254
