We're finally done getting things ready. Thanks to Hoff for solving a couple of the technical issues. You can now register Integrity system Hobbyist licenses. Note that for the Layered Products, you will have to register for a seperate Layered Products Integrity set.
That's great news. Anyone with a new machine like that would be quite priveleged indeed. Well I see the poll says no VAXEN in use.. I guess I could do something about that, there is one here from an old friend of ours. I kinda been keeping it.
If you want one, go to the HP Integrity Developer Workshop

I have an rx2620. I got it at one of the HP Integrity Developer Workshops. If you are a developer on OpenVMS, this seminar is a MUST!
Yes, it is running OpenVMS 8.3 (it was pre-installed).
I haven't started working on the Alpha V8.x kit yet. I'm still not sure about doing an Integrity kit at this time (I don't have media, and not sure how easily I can produce and duplicate the DVD's it ships as - and getting permission :-)
The RX from the porting workshop was pre-installed. We didn't get DVD's or anything. They pre-installed the harddrive with an OpenVMS load, Freeware tools, Apache, PHP, Perl, PAK's and other goodies. I presume once they had a disk they were happy with, they BACKUP/IMAGE'd a whole slew of them to install into the other RX's used for the class.
Is there any word on the media kits for Itanium?
I just acquired an itanium system and I'd like to see how OpenVMS runs on that platform.
it is an rx1600 with 2gb ram and 1 Ghz cpu.
I have a small collection of Vaxes, and Alphas (including the first workstation to come to Canada - with a 150Mhz cpu).
I'm anxious to run the itanium system, but I have no media for it.
Is there anything we can do to help?
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.
nmbonao December 08 2017 Is anybody knows OpenVMS 8.2 version downloadable version? or CD copy? Thank you very much

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?
