Hi,

The company I now work for recently upgraded to IA64 and have the following systems collecting dust...

ES40 * 2 (one powers up fine, the other shows a fan error)
(Rack Mounted together)
DS20 * 2
DS10 * 1

Memory Channel Hub with 4 connections. All systems except 1 DS20
have memory channel cards.

2nd Cabinet is HSG80 with 6 racks of disks, mostly populated.

They were under support until the end of last year and I can find PAKs for layered products and some Alpha-OpenVMS licenses.

Management would like to get some value out of them.. Any suggestions on resellers? I found one that will give us $700 for all the Alphas.

Are hobbyists buying systems? Lots of un-bid ebay auctions...

Located in the NYC area.

Thanks,
Jeff Friedrichs

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.

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?

The openvms disks question is frequently answered in the forums, and is not something to ask about in the shout box.
