I have a real Alpha (OpenVMS 7.2-3) clustered with FreeAXP. I'm trying to BACKUP /PHYSICAL an RZ29B, attached to the real Alpha, to an RZ29B container file attached to FreeAXP. BTW, the source disk isn't OpenVMS (ODS-2, etc.), but Alphacore Linux.
The total blocks of the disks match, but the cylinder counts don't. BACKUP /PHYSICAL requires the block, cylinder, sector, and track counts to match between the source and destination disks.
Is there a way to set the cylinder count of the emulated disk container?
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.
