I don't think there's a "hard-wired" master in a VAX 6000 like
there is in (say) a VAX 8250. There's an algorithm for determining
which CPU is the boss (based on something like slot number).

Rule #1 with the 6K (in my experience) is to reseat the boards.

If that doesn't do it, post the failure details.
