Since the Charon and SIMH VAX emulators don't have serial numbers, just use "CHARON" or "SIMH" or "NONE" for the serial number.

VAX systems, not just emulated ones, don't have serial numbers. Licenses generally use one of three methods:

- LMF license PAK (VMS V5.0 and later)
- The SID, HW_MODEL, CPU, or XCPU values (specific a particular kind of VAX, but not unique)
- The global hardware MAC address of the network interface (unique unless you have an EPROM programmer)

CHARON-VAX has a feature to set the global MAC address, so that's easy to adjust.

I have a product that sets the SID, HW_MODEL, CPU, and XCPU values:

As for PAK's, there's a fee involved in moving existing licenses to an emulated VAX solution. HP and Oracle have policy statements on moving to CHARON-VAX:

Eisner was upgraded to the current Multinet Release. As part of that a new host key was generated. The old key was incompatible with newer Linux.

ssh to eisner is now giving (on linux) "WARNING: REMOTE HOST IDENTIFICATION HAS CHANGED!" , Has the server key in fact changed ?

HPE only makes the most current version of OpenVMS Alpha / IA64 /VAX available to hobbyists. When I had access to the Alliance 1 program it was the same. No public downloads are allowed by HPE.
