What is the easiest way to copy an OpenVMS DVD? Can I use a straight DVD copy program, or is it more complicated than that?

using VMS or a lesser platform?

Using VMS I would try

$ MOUNT/FOR dvddevicename
$ COPY dvddevicename openvms831h1.image
$ DISMOUNT dvddevicename
then as a check
$ LD CONNECT openvms831h1.image
will create a LD device that can be mounted so
should mount something that looks like the DVD. You can then use DVD writing software of your choice (current VMS has COPY/RECORDABLE).

of course I don't know if copying HP OpenVMS media is legal or not.

Thanks, much appreciated. I was afraid that it would be more complicated than that. Making backup copies of your VMS media is perfectly legal AFAIK

I have done this under Windows XP using Roxio 9

I wanted to have a backup copy of my OpenVMS 8.2-something DVD, so I copied it using Roxio 9. The resultant copy worked perfectly as I have been able to use it to boot my Integrity rx1620

If you wish to use this method to copy your OpenVMS related DVD's there are just a few things you need to know. These are :-

1. Roxio provides two methods of making a disk copy. One method involves reading the source disk in a manner which retains an image on the PC hard drive - this didn't work for me (It repeatedly failed half way through the process). The other more usual method involves a disk to disk copy where you first insert the source disk which is then read and ejected at which time you are asked to insert the target disk. This method worked flawlessly. I have used this method many times.

2. Before executing the copy process, you need to change Roxio's default copy method to "RAW" (A selectable advanced copy option) This causes the copy process to do a bit for bit copy of the source media.

Other DVD copying products may be able to do the same job as Roxio although I obviously haven't tried them.

I hope you find this information useful

Infrarecorder is free (GPL) program for Windows that can do a RAW copy of the DVD.

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.
