I just bought some memory on ebay for my PWS 600au. I couldn't pass up a bid at the price. I got 20 sticks of Samsung 256MB PC100 RAM with ECC. Anyone who knows about the PWS 600au knows it only holds 6.
If anyone can use some memory, let me know and we can make a deal. Leave me a personal message here and I'll get back to you.
... dating from June 1998 that cites the SN-MSP01-HF = 512Mb expansion as the largest (then) available for these machines. Since memory sticks must be installed in pairs, this 512Mb kit is two sticks of 256Mb each. Interesting that the above reference sheet says that Digital Unix supports a maximum of 1.5Gb of memory (all six slots populated with 256Mb sticks), but OVMS only supports up to 1Gb in this same machine, although that information may be outdated ?
Anyway, if one were to install banks of 2x512Mb sticks, or 2x1Gb sticks, would the SRM bios support larger memory capacity (assuming latest firmware version) or not ? And if supported by the BIOS firmware, what about at the OVMS operating system level ? My 600au dual-boots hobbyist OpenVMS 8.3, and CentOS Linux v4.3 for Alpha, so I'm tempted to try installing up to six larger capacity (1Gb) memory sticks unless users here know for a fact from experience that this will not work.

Hein April 21 2020 Hi all, haven't been here in years. Good to see it is all there still. I'm looking around at the forum to stop/start msipcap - 'could not be stopped' - for now. I'll shutdown FreeA
