We had a drive fail in our Alpha 1000A, and now when we try to access UCX we get this error.
%DCL-W-ACTIMAGE, error activation image UCX$CFS_SHR
-CLI-E-IMGNAME, image file $1$DRA0:[SYSLIB]UCX$CFS_SHR.EXE;1
-SYSTEM-F-PROTINSTALL, protected images must be installed
We are not sure if this is due to the drive failure or not. We are trying to reconfigure the IP address so we can get the data off this system.
This system was working before we moved it from its old location to our main site so we could get the data off it. I guess the drive failed during transportation, and is causing the other problem. We are not sure what was on the failed drive, but hope it was not anything important.
Seems we might have a spare drive around somewhere for this thing too, but anything on that drive is probably toast. That drive was not in any raid sets so it must not have been very important.
None of us are familiar with the OpenVMS system or Alpha Servers so is there any documentation on how to configure TCP/IP, and possibly troubleshoot this?
malmberg March 24 2018 Probably. More people hang out on the comp.os.vms newsgroup.
vaxpert March 23 2018 I have a PE42A and other Alpha system stuff for sale. I'm in So California. Any interest out there?
goodbyespy February 27 2018 To Prohorenko. Please, visit group OpenVMS in the ok.ru
peteherrera February 24 2018 How much does it cost to buy a complete OpenVMS hardcopy documentation set of the latest version
prohorenko February 17 2018 Please help to obtain the license on OpenVMS
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.

malmberg September 10 2017 https://sourceforge.net/p /vms-ports/wiki/VMSInstal lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?
DoeveR August 07 2017 Where can I find the write up on running VMS 6.1 using the simh emulator?
