Hello all !

I am new to this forum so i would like to greet all of you guys !
I have a problem you experts might help me with , i am building a DMCC alpha station with external scsi HP StorageWorks 2120 rack. Now , the StorageWorks assigns SCSI id's as follows : 0,2,4,6 (increments by two).
In the SRM console i see : DKA0,DKA200 (using two drives only)
But i need the alpha to map the drives DKA0 and DKA100 even if the second drive gets SCSI id 2.
Can i somehow assign a scsi id 2 (dka200.2.0.18.0) as DKA100 and not as DKA200 ?
I must use DKA0 and DKA100 due to software requirements.

Thanks to all in advance.

The easiest way to achieve this is by using logical names. It is recommended that hard-coded device names be avoided for this reason. Use a command with the following syntax:

$ ASSIGN DKA200: DKA100:

The above should allow the program to work as the application will see the device as DKA100. The translation will be handled by OpenVMS behind the scenes. See HELP ASSIGN for more information.

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.

New Hobbyist PAKs for VAX/VMS are no longer available according to reports. Only commercial licenses are reported to be for sale from HPE

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

Hi all, haven't been here in years. Good to see it is all there still. I'm looking around at the forum to stop/start msipcap - 'could not be stopped' - for now. I'll shutdown FreeA
