I have installed on 'Personal Alpha' and wanted to enter my license.
This is the result:

Here is a list of the license information just entered:

Issuer: OPENVMS_HOBBYIST
Authorization: DECUS-DEU-026168079-1231581
Product Name: OPENVMS-ALPHA
Producer: DEC
Units: 0
Release Date:
Version:
Termination Date: 11-JUL-2009
Availability:
Activity: A
Options:
Token:
Hardware ID:
Checksum: x-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx


Is that correct? [YES]:
Registering OPENVMS-ALPHA license in SYS$COMMON:[SYSEXE]LMF$LICENSE.LDB...
%LICENSE-F-BADCHK, checksum does not validate for OPENVMS-ALPHA

Please review all entered PAK data, including the checksum.

I have tried with Product Name: OPENVMS, same procedure.

What can I do?

This is an easy one: you forgot to enter the OPTIONS value NO_SHARE. I'm fairly sure it's there in the hobbyist PAK (it is in mine).

Like Hoff said: it's easier to copy and paste the DCL command that registers the license, followed by a

$ LICENSE LOAD (product-name)

Thank you,

Options: NO_SHARE works fine.

How can I set TCPIP, it tells me that I have no license.

The TCP/IP license is (for historical reasons) called UCX.

It's in the bundle of 104 PAKs for layered products you can register for here.

Technically, you best set up TCP/IP using the command procedure
SYS$MANAGER:TCPIP$CONFIG.COM

HTH,
Martin

have you done the LIC LOAD UCX command?

Then do
@SYS$MANAGER:TCPIP$CONFIG.COM

No more VAX hobbyist licenses. Community licenses for Alpha/IA64/X86_64 VMS Software Inc. Commercial VMS software licenses for VAX available from HPE.

Just re-visiting.. No more hobbyist licenses? Is that from vmssoftware.com, no 'community' licenses?

I recall that the disks failed on the public access VMS systems that included Fafner

Anyone know what happened to FAFNER.DYNDS.ORG? I had a hobbyist account here but can longer access the site.

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.

New Hobbyist PAKs for VAX/VMS are no longer available according to reports. Only commercial licenses are reported to be for sale from HPE

Eisner, which is currently being moved, got an SSH update and the keys were updated to more modern encryption standards.
