I wanted to start my machine with Personal Alpha after a few days
not using it, with this result:

Alpha Emulator Firmware
Version 2.0.6 build Feb 13 2008 10:10:56
Initialized physical memory: 128 MB
Loaded HWRPB: physical address 2000
Initialized CPU0

CPU0 halted: reason: power up

>>> boot dka0
(boot -file '' -flags 'A' 'dka0'smiley
BOOT_RESET is ON: cold boot
Booting from the device 'dka0' file ''
Loaded the primary booter; size 0x9a000
%APB-F-BADSYSROOT, System root [SYSA.] does not exist, check bootflags

CPU0 halted: reason: halt instruction executed

CPU0 halted: default

So I have created a new disk and installed new machine.
After rebooting this new installation I got the same.

So what happens???

On the SRM console, enter

>>> SET BOOT_OSFLAGS 0,0

before booting.

Did you try some Tru64 Unix on that Personal Alpha? A boot flag value of "A" is typical for Tru64, but won't work for VMS.

Ok, that's it, but why does Personal Alpha store this?
Ok, now I know it.

Thank you.

I had build an OpenVMS machine and could start it only with
>> boot dka0

Then I build a True64 machine and since that it boots
with the A flag by default.

That is what I mean with "....why does Personal Alpha store this?"

The Tru64 installation deposits the boot flag in the SRM variable.

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.
