Running VSI OpenVMS V8.4-2L1 under FreeAXP x64 version 4.0.0.649 under Windows 10

Suddenly when I boot, half way through, I lose all console output. I can still log in from an SSH session, but no output on the console session,

Interestingly I can still log in on the console, but still no output. This has happened on every boot in the last three days. On the 12th I changed the config file to call PuTTY with a saved config and tidied the disk file names, but I have booted many times without issue. I have checked the PuTTY settings, and they look fine.

A show terminal command on the console (output to file) show nothing amiss, although it hasn't picked up the terminal type correctly:


Terminal: _OPA0: Device_Type: Unknown Owner: SYSTEM
␍␊ Input: 9600 LFfill: 0 Width: 80 Parity: None

Any ideas what might be causing this?

Thanks

The implication would be something in the boot processes is termination console output. Do you see the problem with a different VMS disk?

Not tried that, but I doubt the issue is with VMS, as all output is gone - including console output after shutdown. An interactive session seems to work OK - ie input is OK, just nothing at all output.

Is there a way of increasing what is logged to the host?

Are you connecting to OPA0 or TTA0? The behavior you describe sounds like you are booting from TTA0.

The PuTTY connection in the saved file is Telnet to 127.0.0.1 port 9001

Interestingly I have just booted the instance, and so far the console is working fine, though no changes made...

At one time, didn't this web site have a job board? I would love to use my legacy skills one last time in my career.

Hi all, haven't been here in years. Good to see it is all there still. I'm looking around at the forum to stop/start msipcap - 'could not be stopped' - for now. I'll shutdown FreeA
