I have an DEC Workstation 433au. The SRM bios says the video card is a "Digital TGA2 Graphics Controller". OpenVMS version is 7.3-2.
When the computer boots normally, the screen goes blank. Clearly its an invalid graphics mode. I also borrowed my friend's 17" monitor. It can do a maximum of 1600x1200x60Hz. Another nice feature is that it displays an error message when the video mode is invalid:
HF 93.7kHz (supported range 30 - 85)
VF 75Hz (supported range 47 - 160)
Clearly the Horizontal Frequency is invalid.
I tried modifying SYS$MANAGER:DECW$PRIVATE_SERVER_SETUP.COM (copied from template). I put in the following:
Thank you very much. I found the rotary switch and it now works.
Out of curiosity, does anyone know why the card has a rotary switch? My parents first computer was a 286... I remember the VGA video card could change resolutions without using jumpers / switches. So why is the PowerStorm so primitive????
jiml November 09 2018 Thank you , Malmberg ! Exactly what I was hoping for . Reset key & all is well . JImL
malmberg November 09 2018 Eisner was upgraded to the current Multinet Release. As part of that a new host key was generated. The old key was incompatible with newer Linux.
jiml November 02 2018 ssh to eisner is now giving (on linux) "WARNING: REMOTE HOST IDENTIFICATION HAS CHANGED!" , Has the server key in fact changed ?

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.
