Author Zipping up backup savesets

Hi All.
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
as input
-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 ?smiley

If this is a commercial installation, you need to hire professional help.

From your post, you are making many elementary mistakes, it is clear you have very little experience with VMS. Not many hobbyist sites have fibre channel disks.

If you are a hobbyist, then you need to start learning more of the very basics about VMS, FTP, Backup, and program development. This forum can help with that.

You do not appear to have the DEC C compiler installed.

Precompiled zip and unzip binaries are usually available on the VMS Freeware disks.

You need to use the "binary" option for FTP transfer of backup savesets.

The VMS file attributes are lost in an FTP and can restored by script on the internet. Just search for restoring VMS backup attributes.

The backup utility in the current version of VMS is able to restore a saveset with out having the file attributes fixed.

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.

lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?

Where can I find the write up on running VMS 6.1 using the simh emulator?

The openvms disks question is frequently answered in the forums, and is not something to ask about in the shout box.
