Hi all, 4 years ago when I started my job we had 3 micro VAX computers running VMS and I got roped into working on them We are in the process of adding a 4th system running on a HP Itanium Integrity system. At this point, I know enough VMS to get my self in trouble so I'm in the process of getting the PAK license to run Open VMS on my MacBook Pro using SIMH so I can really learn the system without having to worry about affecting a high uptime mission critical server
I started on DOS, went to Linux, then on to OSX, but my geek-hood is incomplete without getting into VMS.
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?
