Author OpenVMS 7.2 on VaxStation 3100/30?

Dear Hobbyists,

I recently acquired a VaxStation 3100/30 with VMS 5.5 installed (no valid PAKs). So my questions are:

1. Is ist possible to run OpenVMS 7.2 on a VS 3100/30? Would the performance be acceptible? I think the box has 16 MB RAM and the original 100 MB HDD. I also have plenty of 1 GB SCSI HDDs so that I could replace the system disk. But RAM upgrade is no option I am afraid.

2. Are PAKs from the Hobbyist Program also valid for older versions like VMS 5.5 so that I could try to update the installed system?

What do you think?

Best regards
Bert


P.S.: Please forgive me my bad English smiley

Thank you very much Stephen,

actually I already have been a member of DECUS for 5 years. I've installed VMS hobbyist licenses on several Alpha's, but this is my first VAX smiley

Yes; VAX/VMS V5.2 and later and all OpenVMS releases all use the same PAK checksum scheme within {LMF}.


Well that's fine. Then I'll stick to the installed version and try to reactivate the products using PAKs from the Hobbyist program. TCP/IP is not an option for VMS 5.5, I assume?


As wonderful and as elegant as VAX and Alpha might be, Integrity servers and Itanium processors are where OpenVMS lives now.


I know - but I am particularly interested in conserving old systems, just out of historical interest. Should I come across an affordable Itanium system one day, I might check it out. My company is running several Integrity Blades, but they won't let me install VMS there - HP/UX - what a waste smiley


Best regards

OpenVMS VAX V5.5-2 was a more common choice than V5.5, as that version still has prior version support (PVS) available.


A closer look revealed that it's actually VMS 5.5-2 smiley

Thank you very much for your help - and sorry that I started this thread within "Alpha Software Forums" - I think "VAX Licensing" should have been the correct category.

Best regards

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?
