Subject: What to do about phivAdjCircuitEtherServPhysAddr?

Some nodes on my network do not include the physical ethernet address
in their hello messages, so that when I fill in the
phivAdjCircuitEtherServPhysAddr it only contains 0:0:0:0:0:0.  In this
case should I fill in the DECnet node address or should it be left as
all 0's.  Does what I just said make sense?

I have not received any mail from this list in a while so I do not
know if I am still subscribed.  Therefore, please email me directly.
