The last time I went through the system, it only took a few hours. I do not know if it is an automated process or if a human is involved as it came from the personal e-mail address of an HP employee that works with the Alliance One program.
If it is a manual system, you may not see anything until business hours in the U.S.
2 weeks since I registered my details on the HP system and nothing from them. They are really supporting hobbyists!
They're supporting them well enough to provide downloadable media as well as have someone paid to oversee the hobbyist program. In my book that's pretty good, considering that most of us probably won't be in a position to recommend OpenVMS as a commercial purchase in the near future.
malmberg December 12 2017 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.

malmberg September 10 2017 https://sourceforge.net/p /vms-ports/wiki/VMSInstal lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?
DoeveR August 07 2017 Where can I find the write up on running VMS 6.1 using the simh emulator?
