Hi, I'm very new and so please go easy on me here.

I recently got my membership number and went to register licenses.

I plan to run VMS under SIMH using Linux as a host. I think I get all the OpenVMS OS media from this site -- they send it on CD.

Anyway, the first thing it asks for when registering licenses is 'CPU type', and I get a long drop-down menu of various Alpha CPUs. What do I select here?

Do I need to wait until I start installing OpenVMS before registering the licenses?

Thanks for any help!

A drop-down menu of Alpha CPUs indicates you picked the wrong type of license in the first step of registering for hobbyist licenses.

SIMH emulates a MicroVAX 3900, so you need to select 'VAX Base License' in the first step (and go through the form again for 'OpenVMS Layered Products').

Registering licenses is done during an OpenVMS installation, or afterwards. As hobbyist licenses come in an email wrapped in DCL commands, it's best done after VMS installation (just copy'n'paste the DCL command at the DCL prompt).

HTH,
Martin

Oops..I ordered the Alpha hobbyist kit. Guess I'll have to change my plans as far as the VM goes.

So anyways, what about that alpha drop down?

if you are using linux as the host then you could use

Eisner was upgraded to the current Multinet Release. As part of that a new host key was generated. The old key was incompatible with newer Linux.

ssh to eisner is now giving (on linux) "WARNING: REMOTE HOST IDENTIFICATION HAS CHANGED!" , Has the server key in fact changed ?

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.
