Author ISA table corrupt - setting do not stick

When I start the AvantiFlex software, I am getting the message:

ERROR: ISA table corrupt!
Initializing table to defaults
type >>>init to use these changes
TIMER_TPS environment variable invalid
Defaulting to 1mS per tick
V7.0-9, built on Mar 18 1999 at 13:25:37

I would like to be able to fix this to allow me to change boot configuration
settings so that I can automatically boot when starting the emulation.
If I try to SET BOOTDEF_DEV (or anything else) the setting does not stay set
between shutting down and restarting the emulator. Doing the INIT does not
make the settings stay set either.

How do I get the settings to stay set when I restart the emulator?

Use the console "exit" command to save nvram and toy settings. Provided you are using a reasonably recent version of Avanti, these settings are also periodically saved as FreeAXP runs. See the following User Guide sections for additional information.

- Section 7.10.1 OpenVMS Auto Boot

I was using the EXIT command and had read and was referencing those section of the manual but it was not saving the settings.

I figured it out this morning. When I had first setup the disks I used my local machine with a directory off of C: but when I moved it all to the server, the device changed to F: and the directory remained the same. I had changed the path through the configuration utility to F: for the disks but the path for the NVR and TOY files were still pointing to C: and the directory did not exist there. I edited the CFG file and changed the paths for the NVR and TOY files to F: and it all started working.

I did not see any way of changing those paths through the configuration utility.

The paths settings in the configuration utility are available under the advanced settings [+] on either side of the PCI bus label. Judicious use of the <base> keyword can be helpful in this situation.

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.
