Resolution

The IBM (HPNS) sockets interface was being used--and that was the problem.  The following steps were then performed:

=/parm 

U               $NM SOCKETS     TCP/IP Sockets Interface  

Ensure interface type = USS, like:

TCP/IP Interface Type ........ USS     

Ensure everything else is correct as well, PF08 to verify.

PF06 to  ACTION

From Command Entry do the following--it should now look similar to this:

sh tcpip                                                        
N3AF05 TCP/IP INTERFACE IS ACTIVE NAME=USS PRIMARY=YES IPVERS=6
N3AF06 TCP/IP PARMS PFSNAME=TCPIP    

-

Now update that NMAPI parm with /var/sock and PF06 to ACTION.

-

 
The API became active on the var/sock path.
