Hi all there, I'm sure I will need your help the next days until my last gray cells get active again. I just registered today. My first VAX, a MicroVax II, I installed 23 years ago, and we were a VMS site until 98 approx, when first Digital and later Compaq salesmen had convinced all our Bosses the future to be UNIX - which let to many incompatible Linux islands around me now.
Cleaning up my office I found the CD set of VMS 5.5-2 and thought to give it a try on simh - that is why I came here today. Today, I got as far with little reading that I got the standalone backup kit bootet - and now I must confess I forgot what to do next. I know I have to say
backup ... But what is ... ?
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?
