I managed once to build a 3 node cluster on a XP 32 bits running on a dual core laptop, using FreeAXP, Personal Alpha and ES40 (extremely slow but beautiful).
Whatever I did to make them see each other on the network, I don't know, it's not working anymore.
I'm trying now to make just a 2 nodes cluster using FreeAXP and Personal Alpha, bridging together 2 Loopback devices and 1 TAP-Win32 Adaptor V9. The bridge has IP and VMS's have and, all have mask I chose this mask to avoid conflict with another subnet in the same class.
IF I start first FreeAXP, I can ping it and connect to it with telnet. When I start also Personal Alpha, I lose connection to FreeAXP but in exchange I can connect to P.Alpha. Obviously the VMS nodes don't see each other.
MAC addresses of VMS nodes are also different. I can't see where is the conflict.
IF I start first Personal Alpha, I never get a connection to FreeAXP.
What am I doing wrong?

What happens if you try the same set-up, but substitute a SimH VAX instance for PersonalAlpha?

Is the clustering using the new TCP/IP clustering?

Are the MAC addresses correct?

Are all the SCSSYSTEMID values correct and unique?

I am currently clustering FreeAXP and SimH, but have each on their own dedicated Virtual Box VM as documented in another thread.

@ Bruce and malmberg thanks for your replies but after many tries I found a solution. It appeared to me when I decided to ignore network guide from FreeAXP manual and use some basic logic instead. Apparently TAP adapter does not like bridging.
I just bridged 2 loopback adapters and assigned one loopback adapter to each emulator and it worked! I kept the same IP configuration as in my first post.

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.
