Have any of you tried running these SCSI Zip Drives on your systems running OpenVMS 6.2-1H3. I am just trying to use the unit for Data File backups and not for imaging.

Thanks

Sorry for the late response, but yes, a SCSI Iomega ZIP drive will look to VMS like an attached SCSI hard drive. Be sure to take note of the SCSI ID-number setting on the ZIP drive (only choices are 5 and 6), and to make sure that the SCSI device chain is properly terminated. If the ZIP drive is the last external device in line, the built-in termination works fine in my setup.

On VMS, after you insert a disk-cartridge into the ZIP drive, you can:

$ ALLOCATE DKA500
$ INITIALIZE DKA500 ZIP100
$ MOUNT DKA500

... and it should report that "ZIP100" is mounted. However, having initialized the disk under VMS, you will not be able to read this disk on a PC or Mac or Linux machine. There is a freeware utility that will allow files on a DOS floppy disk to be read / written from VMS, but to my knowledge neither that tool (nor anything analogous) works with Iomega ZIP disks that have been DOS formatted.

If anyone is aware of such a tool, or equivalently a DOS or Windows tool that will allow reading a VMS-formatted disk, please reply here with links for more information.

Hope this helps,

-- Jim

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?
