I just found this forum because I was looking for some help with a VMS problem... it is solved now.
This proved my theory to be true, you're never alone with a problem. There is certainly someone on this planet who had the same problem and solved it. And if it was a nice person, he shared the information via Internet. 8)

I'm working in a medium sized IT-services company in Switzerland as a technician in the repair center. We sell and support all kinds of hardware from tiny PCs up to big servers and the necessary peripherals.
I'm in this business since 1989 and have seen a lot of different stuff since we support all brands.
I started with the repair of Cipher 1/2" tape drives and used a PDP 11/44 to test it... the PDP does still exist in working condition.

Now I'm responsible for the Intel based servers fron HP and IBM but since I have no fear from the unknown smiley I'm also the specialist for all the unusual and old products like PDPs VAXes and Alphas. We still have customers with 30 years old PDP's running in a 365x7x24 environment. Of course we encourage them to replace these machines but that will be a big investment.

In my private life, I like old mechanical things like motorbikes and cars. I have a Harley from 1978 and a Chevy truck from 1963. Since I have no family and a bit too much time :shock: I'm currently building a full scale cockpit flight simulator.

You may visit my simulator blog: http://conniesim.blogspot.com text is in german but the pictures are in universal language...

Welcome.

A PDP11 is a wonderful thing and there are ones still doing vital work especially in process control.

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.

lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?
