I 'am using Alpha station 255 with openVMS 7.1 , on a process plant config./history server . For backup purpose i tried to use a seagate 73 GB harddisk and used standard backup commands . Although the process is succesfully completed each time , the backup does not boot beyond startup message.
Somebody suggested to use INITIALIZE/INDEX=BEGIN and NOINITIALIZE qualifier on target disk but it did not help either . However when i tried a older , from scrapyard , 9 GB harddisk, every thing went fine . This disk worked perfect for many days before i removed it for relibility reasons. Since i cannot upgrade my operating system due to lack of support from vendor , niether can i risk installing any patch , please advise how to use a larger / new hard disk to make a succesful copy .
Note that i have tried all possible combinations of qualifiers and tried tape backups . But they all failed .

73 GB SCSI disks did not exist in 1996, and SCSI itself didn't include fields for disks larger than 8.58 GB back around that time-frame.


I think you may be incorrect. The 8.58GB limitation was an IDE limitation, not SCSI.

I have an Adaptec 2940 and it supports 32bit sector counts, which is a 2 Terabyte disk size limit When was the 2940 first released - probably around 1996???

With VMS Alpha 7.2-1 there is no problems with SCS 72 Gb disks.

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?
