Hi,
I'm new to SIMH and OpenVMS. I'm running simh-4.0-Beta--2014-01-23-9ab6c4d1 on Windows. My vax.ini is setup as follows:

;Load the processor ROM
;load -r /Users/marcus/vax/ka655x.bin
;Create and attach a file for emulated NVRAM
;attach nvr /Users/marcus/vax/nvram.bin
;Give the emulator 64 MB RAM
set cpu 256m
set cpu idle
set throttle 100%
;Define two RA92 drives, largest drives supported on VAX, and a CDROM.
set rq0 ra92
set rq1 ra92
set rq2 cdrom
;Attach defined drives to local files
attach rq0 d0.dsk
attach rq1 d1.dsk
;Attach the CDROM to the VMS iso in read only-mode
attach -r rq2 vms.iso
; Disable unused devices.
set rl disable
set ts disable
;Attach networking. Change en0 to the name of your NIC (eth0 in Linux for instance)
set xq mac=08-00-2B-AA-BB-CC
set CONSOLE TELNET=1
attach xq eth1
;Boot the CPU
SET CPU CONHALT
DEP BDR 0
BOOT CPU
EXIT

I have the most recent OpenVMS VAX system installed successfully. My question is, I mount rq1 with the commands:

$ INITIALIZE DUA1: DATA1
$ MOUNT/SYSTEM DUA1 DATA1

And proceed to transfer files over. When I reboot the system all the files are gone! Am I doing something wrong? rq0 is staying persistent.

Thanks,
Jovan

Nevemind it's because I keep calling "INITIALIZE DUA1: DATA1" that my data disappears, duh!

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?

It would be nice to be able to buy the lastest hardcopy full OpenVMS docset at a very reduced price through the Hobbyist program. smiley

The openvms disks question is frequently answered in the forums, and is not something to ask about in the shout box.
