I belive that I have a copy of the disks (will verify tonight). But, this request does raise a few questions. Why this specific version? A V7 variant should be must more stable/supported and easier to acquire.
Just less bloat. Boot a V6 versus a V7 instance on the same hardware and see for yourself. V6 systems are a bit faster in our performance testing as well. The same is true from V7 to V8. V7 is faster. Again, less to the operating system. Adding features has a performance cost.
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.
