You are definitely not the first person to make this mistake, which I why I recognized it right away.  We should probably print a better error message from devMotorAsyn than just reporting that the int32 interface is not found, providing more of a hint as to what is probably wrong.

Is my face ever red.

Yes, I had the wrong ASYN port name in the database.  I was referring to the TCP port not the motor port.

All working now.   Sorry for the interruption!

That error about the int32 interface not being found is familiar.  It is usually a problem with the database file, where the wrong asyn port name is used in the motor record INP link.  It should be the port for the asynMotorController driver, i.e. PIE873_1 or PIE873_1 in your case.  But perhaps instead you have used the name of the underlying TCP port, i.e. pie873A or pie873B in your case?
