my name is Peter and I do work with VMS for almost 30 years. I do have some certification for VMS cluster and C coding.
While working at the University my nicest baby was a 3420, Firefox. The first Alpha was a Jensen.
For 20 years i was product owner and developer for a monitoring solution called EWS. I still work on it for fun. It can monitor devices, queues, logfiles, opcom and more.
Today, I use VMS private base only.
I own a VAXStation 3100-10, VAX 3100-95, VAXStation 2000, Alphaserver 250, Alphaserver 800 5/400, RX 2620, Multia AXP 233, some VT510, a TLZ875 and some other stuff like Tapedrives and BA Shelfs.
I hope for two Alphaserver 1000 for a nice cluster, not sure yet about the Quorum disk. Another thing is still a non woring AXPPci board.
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?
