After installing VMS on my PWS 433 I did a $show cpu/full and found no serial number on the processor. So... I generated a key OS key with PWS433AU "NONE". No worky. Gen'ed with PWS433a "NONE". No worky. Finally flipped the thing over and got a serial number. Gen'ed with PWS433a,au and serial. No worky. I cut and paste so its no typo. Gen'ed as Unlisted workstation. No worky. The message:

Can you post the license information (with the "sensitive" information redacted), so that we can see what might be wrong?

The /INCLUDE message is particularly interesting here; I don't have one on my base Hobbyist license:

$ LICENSE REGISTER OPENVMS-ALPHA -
/ISSUER=OPENVMS_HOBBYIST -
/AUTHORIZATION=DECUS-USA-xxxxxx-xxxxxxxxxx -
/PRODUCER=DEC -
/UNITS=0 -
/TERMINATION_DATE=19-JUN-2009 -
/ACTIVITY=A -
/OPTIONS=(NO_SHARE) -
/CHECKSUM=x-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx

The only other thing I can think of is - did you load the license after registering it?:

Used a MOD OPENVMS-ALPHA/INCLUDE=NODE1 (NODE1 is the system name) that worked. Thanx!

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.

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