I encountered a very strange situation on my PW XP1000.
I am running OpenVMS 8.4 on this box.
If I change the date to e.g. 05-feb-2020 it will not be saved.
(intrestingly the time is saved)
Whenever I restart the computer it will ask me for the date.
I already changed the battery twice because I thought this might be the problem.

Today I changed the date to 05-feb-2010 it works fine.

I also tried it on another box running OpenVMS 8.3 and there is no such problem.

Has anyone seen this issue?

Is there a setting that I don't know of?

Don't know. Try setting the date with a binary search to determine if you can find if it is only 2020 it does not like.

So I think nobody can realy help me with that.
I don't know what you mean by "binary search".
Anyway, here are some more details.
I rebooted the box now severat times to find out what date causes the problem.
It's not 2020.
I booted the box with 31-dec-2012 and it wored fine.
Then I set the time to "31-dec-2012 23:58" and waited 2 minutes to make shure it was 01-jan-2013.
I shutdown the box compleetly, restarted and the box asked me for the date.

So the problem occures after 2012.

Any ideas????

binary search is a technique to find an answer from a range of possible values faster than testing each value in sequence.

Someone on the comp.os.newsgroup may know if that is a feature of the xp1000.

I have the same exact problem on my XP1000 and V8.4.
Like you, I do not enter the hh:mm:ss part, just
dd-mmm-yyyy, because the time is remebered.

If I just enter, say, 15-MAY (no yyyy), it defaults
to 15-MAY-2001.

This is a known issue that was discussed at length in comp.os.vms and the HP OpenVMS conference. Search there for "solutoins".

Until you said 2013 or later doesn't work, I would have said boot up use the set time=5-jun-2021:19:33 command and shutdown to update the TOY clock. Also, I don't know if XP1000 has a TOY clock. Me: VAX & AXP only.

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.

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
