I got a strange problem with OpenVMS 8.3 (no patches original from Hobbyist Kit installed). Sometimes SCSI get a reset an OpenVMS stops working w/o any message. This problems occures somtimes also while booting.

While syncing Raid1 no problem ocurred, but if I want to install any patch set (e.g VMS83A_PCSI-V0200) console shows 0%, SCSI disk lights, then reset and nothing more happens.

To check for hardware problems I installed Debian Linux 5.0.4 (for AXP). I did many checks which created heavy load on disks for several hours. Linux syslog did not show any scsi related problems, so I would say there is no HW problem.

What should be checked to get rid off that problem ?

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?

Where can I find the write up on running VMS 6.1 using the simh emulator?
