I have an openvms 7.1 system running under freeaxp, and want to be able to use the HP availabity manager.

I do have correctly install data collector which is distributed as
but in order to use the analizr installed on PC I need also to install the availability dataserver on the alpha
the problem is that this package is distributed only as PCSI$COMPRESSED file

and on my openvms 7.1 my polycenter is:
POLYCENTER Software Installation utility version: V7.2-108
Product Configuration File (PCF) support level: 1
Product Description File (PDF) support level: 5
Product Text File (PTF) support level: 2

I've try to uncopress on alpha openvms 8.3 but the produced PCSI file is then not recognized by POLYCENTER on alpha under OPENVMS 7.1
The following product has been selected:

Do you want to continue? [YES]

Configuration phase starting ...

You will be asked to choose options, if any, for each selected product and for
any products that may be installed to satisfy software dependency requirements.

%PCSIUI-E-ABORT, operation terminated due to an unrecoverable error condition

I've try to get polycenter update but donot find it.

Does somebody have a solution for me????

Images builti on VMS 8.3 have little hope of running on VMS 7.1.

You can use product extract on the VMS 8.3 system to take the kit apart and then figure out how to install it manually on VMS 7.1.

Since the PCSI procedure needs a later version though, I doubt that the images inside will work on VMS 7.1.

You might as on comp.os.vms if someone can provide you with an older version of Availability Manager. IIRC it was included on the VMS distribution media.

Thanks for the answer,

On the web page of HP availability, the actual version is claimed to work on older openvms version,

In fact my main problem is that I'm not able to get the update of the polycenter in order to be able to handle pcsi$compressed files.

I've try to find it no success.

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?
