I want to start 2 instances VMS FreeAxp on the same disk but on SYS0 for ALPHA1 and SYS1 for ALPHA2, the start of ALPHA1 is OK but ALPHA2 fail after test e6
I think it's share disk pb

Bruce may correct me on this, but right now FreeAXP doesn't support shared storeage of the type needed by TruCluster (I can't comment on VMS). I've built a working one member TruCluster (with V5.1B-5), but without the shared scsi, it must remain a single member.

Under Tru64 UNIX V4, the Available Server (ASE) product does not require shared scsi for all configurations, so in theory a V4 ASE configuration is a possibility, but we have not begun testing that yet.

Would there be much demand or need for V4 + ASE out there ?
Anyone care to comment, or tell us if or why ASE is still in use ?

John's right, there is no shared SCSI support in FreeAXP, nor are there plans for any at this time.

You should be able to MSCP share storage over a network cluster under VMS. We need to resolve some network issues before the same type of sharing is available for Tru64.

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.
