I just installed OpenVMS under Personal Alpha and I have it up and running. However its giving out about licenses for tcpip and Decnet.
Is it possible for me to copy my existing Alpha 7.3 on a DS10 to run under personal Alpha or any other tool. The idea of finding licenses and reinstalling kilts does not appeal to me.
The TCPIP and DECNET licenses are part of the layered product license set.
With the hobby license keys, only the VMS license is unique to the serial number. The layered product licenses keys that you request will always be the same, tracked the membership id used to request them.
How do i find out my membership id. I can't seem to find it anywhere.
Also, if i have no Decnet or TCPIP service running, how do i get the license on my system?
You do have a terminal session up, like putty right? When you do that logon as system and whatever you set your password to, then copy and paste the licences into the putty session. The last line of each license may give you grief(it did for me) so you may need to paste it separately.
Then type show licenses and it will show you all the licenses that are loaded.
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.
