Hi everyone. I have a workstation of my dads that has been sitting in the basement powered up all these years spinning the power meeter needle outside the house. My goal is to get it running on the internet serving up some html pages.
4000-60 VMS v6.2
2 RZ26L 1GB disk drives
ESA0 network device
At one point ~98' I had the network set up to a Slackware Linux system. It has been a really long time since I have messed with this.
Upon boot, pretty much every license it has on it has expired. Guess I could set the clock back and may be the easiest solution since it does not matter to me. Write a little C code to get the "real" date off the network if need be.
Anyways before I get too inventive with that maybe it would be good to see what hardware improvements can be done on this thing for cheap. Need to open this thing up and see what ebay has to offer I guess.
Good to see HP has allowed this madness to continue. My first VMS systems I wrode code on was the 11/780, 11/785, MicroVAX II, 8550, 8350. Thank goodness at the time all I needed to know was the boot sequence on the PDP11s these systems replaced.
jiml November 09 2018 Thank you , Malmberg ! Exactly what I was hoping for . Reset key & all is well . JImL
malmberg November 09 2018 Eisner was upgraded to the current Multinet Release. As part of that a new host key was generated. The old key was incompatible with newer Linux.
jiml November 02 2018 ssh to eisner is now giving (on linux) "WARNING: REMOTE HOST IDENTIFICATION HAS CHANGED!" , Has the server key in fact changed ?

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.
