Hello Everyone,

I just joined this website. I'd been here before to register my licenses (awesome program, by the way), but didn't notice the rest of the site; well, now I did, so here I am.

I live in the Netherlands, and have become an OpenVMS enthousiast since I ran into an AlphaServer 2100 at work. That same 2100 is now sitting in my attic, along with some older and younger siblings. I run VMS with hobbyist licenses on:
- MicroVAX ][
- VAX 4000/200
- VAXserver 4000/200
- VAX 4105
- DEC 3000/800
- AlphaServer 400
- AlphaServer 2000
- AlphaServer 2100
- AlphaServer 4000
- AlphaServer 4100

I have CI cluster cards for most of them (at least for all the alphaservers), but unfortunately don't have a starcoupler or any cables for it, so instead I'm running clustering over Ethernet, DSSI, and SCSI.

I also run OpenVMS on the ES40 Emulator (http://sourceforge.net/projects/es40), an open-source emulator that I started working on in late 2006. The laptop I'm writing this on occasionally thinks it's an ES40.

As you may have guessed from the above, my fascination with OpenVMS lies mostly in the realm of Operating System internals. It still amazes me how well the concept was thought through as far back as 1977, the year I was born too.

Kind regards, and if you'd happen to come across some CI hardware being thrown out not too far from the Netherlands, please remember me smiley

Camiel, that's a fine collection you have there and I'm sure you don't need heating in your house :-)

The architecture of VMS is one of the things that makes VMS the worlds finest operating system.

Hi Ian,

I sure wouldn't need heating indeed if I were running all of these all the time. I might need to upgrade my electrical utility though.

I'm looking forward to meeting you at the bootcamp (I'm assuming you'll be there)

Cheers,

Camiel

Hi Camiel,

you should contact Bernd Ulmann, the german VAXman, http://www.vaxman.de, owner of the world's biggest VAX museum. Perhaps he has some CI hardware to spare.

HTH,
Martin

Excellent collection, and nice work on the ES40 emulator. I haven't tried running it yet, but it's definitely on my to-do list!

Maybe I can get a SIMH VAX and ES40 Emulator to cluster together on my laptop. Or is that too sick and twisted?

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?

The openvms disks question is frequently answered in the forums, and is not something to ask about in the shout box.
