Under few circumstances would I say that I *want* to virtualize hardware; however, in this case, I have a limited amount of Integrity hardware devoted to testing. Unfortunately, I there is a need to use the box to do some HPUX 11iv3 / Oracle testing at the same time that I'm exploring VMS / Integrity.
I am most certainly going down the path of asking HP. My rep is actively working on finding out release dates, etc... for the marriage of the two (VMS and HPVM). Yesterday I was able to bring up 8.3 on an rx6600 with little issue, so at the very least I'll be able to do some testing on physical hardware until the box is required elsewhere.
Others may or may not be interested... as I find out more, I certainly update this (or another) thread.
It appears that HP - as mentioned in the thread - is going to include OVMS on the upcoming version of HPVM. I just filled out the paperwork that will allow me to take part in the beta-test of coming version which will run atop HP-UX 11iv3/IA64.
Well... aside from a few "bugs", it looks like HPVM on HP-UX 11iv3 supports openVMS. I just finished installing "HP OpenVMS Industry Standard 64 Operating System, Version XBW8-J2I" onto an rx6600 running an instance of 11iV3 / HPVM.
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?
