I'm running 7.2-3 on an DS25 & I am trying to zip up the backup saveset (larger than 4 gig) to FTP them to a windows box for subsequent BU to tape. Tested just FTPing the save set but it is rendered useless for a restore. Downloaded zip30 but when I run "@[.vms]build_zip large" this fails. Sample errors:
$! Compile the sources.
$ cc /define = (LARGE_FILE_SUPPORT, VMS) /object = [.ALPHAL]ZIP.OBJ ZIP.C
%DCL-W-IVVERB, unrecognized command verb - check validity and spelling
%LIBRAR-W-OPENIN, error opening $1$DGA116:[BACKUPS.ZIP30.ALPHAL]CRC32.OBJ;
-RMS-E-FNF, file not found
Any one tried to install this SW ? or have an alternative that does not include buying a tape drive for the VMS server ?
malmberg December 12 2017 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.
