I'll just note that most of the "unbid" ebay auctions are starting at prices much too high for a typical hobbyist bidder. Realistically, no one values a DS10 at $995, let alone $1,995 as I have seen... except a corporate buyer who is locked into an existing configuration and needs an immediate replacement for damaged or failed hardware. Those people are being held to ransom.
The rest of us have to settle for what we can scrounge outside of auction or reseller realms.
Beware of the $700 offer. The buyer may well be an aftermarket reseller who will reprice these items at 10 times what they give you.
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?
DoeveR August 07 2017 Where can I find the write up on running VMS 6.1 using the simh emulator?
