Hello all,

I'm having some trouble installing OpenVMS 8.3 (hobbyist licence) on my DEC 3000/400.

Disclaimer: (1) my OpenVMS 8.3 media is comprised of two CD-Rs that I burnt from two ISOs that I found somewhere (I want to make sure that this works before buying the media); and (2) despite using an unsupported and non updated firmware, I contourned OpenVMS's boot check with the command "boot DKA300 -lf 0,800". It's not clear however that either element is the source of the problem.

The install programme begins flawlessly. I enter only the OPENVMS-ALPHA PAK licence (responding "no" when it asks if I want to enter others) and it confirms my licence. Next, I select all the included software (DWMOTIF, SSL, TCPIP et al).

At 80% completion, the install programme informs me that there was an error reading the TCPIP kit and it basically forces me to terminate.

If I redo the installation, selecting all kits _except_ TCPIP, it still cuts out around 80%. Here is the message that it gives me. (NB: The <CR> at the sixth line is me, pressing enter. There may be typos because I've transcribed this manually.)

--- BEGIN ---

%PCSI-E-READERR, error reading DKA500:[KITS,DWMOTIF_ALPHA016_KIT]DEC-AXPVMS-DWMO
TIF-V0106--1.PCSI$COMPRESSED;1
-DDIS-E-TNF, invalid element syntax
%PCSI-E-OPFAILED, operation failed
Terminating is strongly recommended. Do you want to terminate? [YES] <CR>
%PCSI-E-CANCEL_WIP, termination resulted in an incomplete modification to the sy
stem

[...]

--- END ---

Any ideas?

I found the following discussion on this topic.

http://nixforums.org/viewtopic.php?p=554575

It could therefore be a problem of corrupt kits. That said, the fellow in the above post was performing an upgrade from downloaded files whereas I am performing an installation (albeit based on ISOs of questionable origin).

I am going to buy the media kit, but does anyone think that the problem could be something else?

Fair enough. I've ordered the hobbyist media kit and we'll see how that goes. I'll try to write a followup when it's done. In the meantime, thanks!

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?

The openvms disks question is frequently answered in the forums, and is not something to ask about in the shout box.
