Hi all,

i need some help on this.

I've install openvms-hobbyist cd v8.3 in DS10. it works. I even installed all the license provided to me.

But everytime i tried to telnet to the box, it says the following:

Welcome to OpenVMS (TM) Alpha Operating System, Version V8.3

Username: system
Password:
No license is active for this software product
%TELNET-S-REMCLOSED, Remote connection closed
-TELNET-I-SESSION, Session 01, host 192.168.111.125, port 23

its clearly say about user license. I've loaded accordingly all the license and my license still has long time b4 expires (apr 2009).


$ sho lic

I can ssh to the box but not telnet. I strongly thinks its related to openvms-alpha-user license. I've unload and reload again but still doesn't works.

What else cld be wrong? Thanks in advance

Hi!

Me thinks you're missing a OpenVMS Alpha base license (named OPENVMS-ALPHA). You can obtain it through a separate licensing step here at openvmshobbyist.org.

Ah ha! A new way to avoid the per-user licensing! SSH!

I like the way they did it for IA64. You get a single FOE/etc PAK and you're pretty much ready to go.

Me too. Especially since even the basic FOE PAK covers unlimited users.

What I dislike is the per-core licensing even for compilers. And that AvailMan is not in FOE, but in EOE (I've heard that this is due to the fact that sysadmin tools are licensed in the enterprise class in HP/UX...). But if they did as they said at last year's Bootcamp, the license is (comparatively) cheap.

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?

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.
