I'm sorry I posted this. This was too easy. I didn't get any replies probably just for that reason. I had a 4GB Toshiba flash drive hanging around, so I plugged it into the back of my rx2600. It flashed a few times and stopped. I went into VMS and typed UCM SHOW EVENTS which showed me what was going on and the device name, which was DNA0:.
I initialized it and mounted it and could read and write to it without any problem. I dismounted it and removed the drive. Like I said, that was easy.
Hopefully this post may help someone with that very same question.
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.
