Dear All
First of all: thanks for keeping the VMS hobby community alive and active. This kind of participation and loyalty is not easily seen for other systems.

My problem: I installed 8.3 Alpha on the Personal Alpha. I also installed the PAKs for the base system, TCPIP etc. I upgraded to 8.4 last night. I am assuming my licenses will be valid on the new 8.4 system. I never tried to Telnet from OSX to the older 8.3 installation before.

The licenses seem to be ok. What license am I missing?

$ sh lic/usage

But when I try to connect from MAC OSX using Telnet (note FTP works ok):

You need to load the OpenVMS base licence - in this case 'OPENVMS-ALPHA'. Once you have loaded this licence you may need to modify it so that it is associated with the local system (because base licences often have the NO_SHARE tag).

$ LICENSE MODIFY OPENVMS-ALPHA /INCLUDE=node




Where 'node' is the nodename of your local system.
I can't remember if this step is needed for standalone systems, but it is required for cluster environments. If you have multiple 'OPENVMS-ALPHA' licences registered then you will need to add the /AUTHORIZATION=xxx-xxx-xx qualifier to the above command to distinguish which licence is to be modified.

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?
