Does SIMH/VAX only emulate the 11/780 or can it emulate other VAX models?

By default SimH simulates a MicroVAX 3900. You can optionally set it to be a VAX-11/780. I think those are the only choices for VAX CPU emulation.

The published list of emulated CPUs is at Available Simulators

Simh has two executables for VAX emulation.
One can emulate either a VAXserver 3900 or a MicroVAX 3900. You can toggle between the two by editing the ROM. Instructions on how to do this are in the Simh FAQ but note that the procedure described uses the PDP11 emulator to do the ROM edit and not the VAX emulator.

The other VAX emulator bundled with Simh is the VAX-11/780. This can be modified to emulate a VAX-11/785 with a simple change to the code. In vax780_defs.h change the following line (near the top of the file) from:

#define VAX780_ECO (7 << 19)

to:

#define VAX780_ECO (373 << 15)

and recompile. This will emulate a VAX-11/785 revision 14 F manufactured at NI (Salem FA&T) smiley

I am currently modifying Simh to emulate a few different models of VAX. These may not be completed anytime soon as I don't have much time to work on them at the moment. They are:

MicroVAX II - 90% complete. Can boot OpenVMS in minimum startup mode only. NetBSD seems to work OK.

MicroVAX 2000 - 50% complete. Can run to console prompt only. Not booted yet.

VAX-11/730 - 20% complete. Can boot to OpenVMS banner then hangs.

Hopefully I will get round to releasing at least the MicroVAX II at some point.

A VAXstation 4000 emulation might be more popular?

I started with the MicroVAX II because it was not too far removed from the MicroVAX 3900 and therefore was quite good for a starting project. Likewise with the 11/730, I am using the 11/780 as a starting point.

The MicroVAX 2000 however is a bit more complicated but I think it will provide a stepping stone to the 3100 series and then possibly to the 4000s.

I'm posting this here for the benefit of those who do not follow the Simh mailing list.

It's been a long time since my last post but a lot of progress has been made. All 3 of the emulators mentioned above are available for download on my website (www.9track.net). They are Win32 binaries for now although the source is available for the 11/730.

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.
