I haven't played with DECnet Plus, so I'm not aware of any requirements
it may make on SCSSYSTEMID.

SCSSYSTEMID is used to differentiate systems in a cluster. If you're not
clustering your machine, you shouldn't have to worry about it too much.
If you are in a cluster, the SCSSYTEMID needs to be related to the
DECnet IV node number. Basically, SCSSYSTEMID = ( DECnet area * 1024 ) +
DECnet node. So if you've told DECnet IV that you're node 51.10, you'll need
to set SCSSYSTEMID to (51 * 1024) + 10 = 52234.
