Hi everyone,

Is there a way to transfer PAK license file to virtual OpenVMS Alpha?

What I have tried myself:

#1. Create ISO using WinISO, put PAK file there and then mount it with AlphaVM emulator, but it seems that I can mount this ISO only in foreign mode therefore I cannot copy file from it.

#2. Copy text directly from host machine to "edit" text editor inside OpenVMS, but I have got buffer overrun error message, so I cannot transfer license file this way either.

Any suggestions for me?

Thanks in advance

The console port buffer is too small for large copy and paste operations. Try one of the following:

- Define a serial mux and copy and paste via a virtual serial port.

; Set up DZV11 Serial Multiplexer
; Terminal Lines
; -------- -------
; TTA: 0 - 3
; TTB: 4 - 7
; TTC: 8 - 11
; TTD: 12 - 15
set dz enable
attach dz 10000

- Copy and paste via a Telnet session. Set up the network license by hand if necessary.

Thank you for answer

Just tried this

set dz enable gave me no error but attach dz 10000 wrote
"invalid command"
(AlphaVM emulator)

Did I run these commands in the wrong place?

I believe that what you have written is for SIMH (VAX) emulator, not for AlphaVM

You are correct, I posted for SimH VAX. Try FreeAXP. It includes both an OPA0 console port and a TTA0 serial port. You can use the TTA0 serial port to cut and paste licenses once you have the VMS license loaded.

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.
