I'm trying to get CIFS running on an Alpha with OpenVMS 8.3. I've tried both the 1.0 and the 1.1 distributions.
First problem is I can't find the CRTL on the ECO ftp site. There is an ACRTL, but I'm thinking that is not the same. So if anyone can help me find the CRTL needed for CIFS and OpenVMS 8.3, I think that may be a a big bit part of the problem...
So, here's my symptom...
It installs ok. It starts up ok, but I can not get it to authenticate against the PDC or use guest.
Most of the utilities in the samba$root:[bin.alpha] folder crash when I try to run them. That's why I think this may be the CRTL problem.
I just need to share one folder that is read/write to everyone.
So, I setup SMB.CONF to make this a member server. I can browse and see the Alpha machines Samba... banner from a Windows XP workstation when browse through network neighborhood.
When I click on it, it prompts me for a login name and password but I can't go anywhere past that.
I don't want the user to have to authenticate each time, so a guest access with one folder that is read/writeable would be perfect.
Or if I can get it to authenticate against the Windows 2003 based PDC, that would be fine as well.
Can anyone provide some insight in how to setup smb.conf to do this? And can someone point me in the direction of the correct CRTL for 8.3?
malmberg March 24 2018 Probably. More people hang out on the comp.os.vms newsgroup.

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?
