My name is Bob McLean after starting with DEC in 1975 and working for Compaq and HP, I am now a semi free man working with Bruce and Dennis at Bruden. My OpenVMS experience goes way back to 1.1 and my current projects are working with 8.3 on both Alpha and Itanium. Plus I keep about 60 Alphaservers 7.1-2 system humming along and a few 7.2 and 7.3 along the way.
My OpenVMS systems include a VAXstation 4000, VAX 4000-200, AlphaStation 200/233, DEC PWS 500, AlphaServer 800 and my newest an Itanium rx2620.
Non work related activities include working on my 1976 Porshe 911S, riding my Ninja or trying to keep up with my 112 year old farm house.
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?
