Hi Steve:
Yes, the system was working before, and I had just gotten to the point of entering some short DCL programs. My intention was to learn DCL better. When it failed it was an overnight thing. I have tried re-seating the boards but no luck. I will try again. I am very new at all this. I have no extra parts to speak of. Please explain: "moving to Alpha or integrity Itaniam or emulation replacing the box" also, the TK70 seems to work, is there a way to boot from MUA0, and where can I get a tape that would allow me to do so? Sorry for the ignorant questions, but I really am serious about all this. I am 60 yrs old, and this has become my project! Is there any way I can check the status of the drive or controller board from the system console mode at the >>> prompt? Do you know anyone in the Cleveland area who I might contact about this? My budget is small. I have 3 Compactape II cartridges 1 blank and 2 with what I believe are "turn key" programs on them. I was able to list the files on one of the tapes using$ backup/list MUA0:*.* before the system went down.

Thanks for all your help and patience
P.S. may I call you? or my number is (440) 885-0803
Best...................Wayne Verish

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?

Where can I find the write up on running VMS 6.1 using the simh emulator?

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