Author OpenVMS 7.3-2 trasporting backup from Alpha to X86

Hi,

I'm completely new to OpenVMS, i got a question you guys perhaps got a solution to.

We have multiple systems running on Alpha OpenVMS 7.3-2

We now are making backups to tape directly using OpenVMS backup.

We purchased new software Commvault that obsiously does not support OpenVMS 7.3-2 anymore. Only 8.3 and later.

I'm looking for a way to get the backups from these machines over to for example a UP-UX / FreeBSD 7.3 X86 or Linux for example Ubuntu X86.

NFS share limits to 2GB size due TCP/IP version and newer NFS 3 is only from TCP/IP 5.7 supported that only runs on OpenVMS 8.4..

Any ideas about this? Goal is to get the data/backup available on an X86 Unix/Linux/Windows place where we can dump it to disk using commvault.

Thanks in advance,
Marcel.

Use Info-zip off the VMS Freeware CD on the VMS systems and FTP to move the zip archives to X86.

Does commvault run on the VMS system?

If not, then it should not care if the VMS version if VMS 7.3 or 8.4. The backup files should look the same to it.

The big issue is if it is using SFTP to access the VMS system. In that case you may have a cipher mis-match because the ciphers on the older VMS system may no longer be supported.

NFS share limits are on individual file sizes.

Cygwin/32 NFS can serve a NFS V2 volume of terabyte size to my VAX/VMS 7.3 and newer systems.
The last time I checked, Cygwin had not ported NFS to their 64 bit product.

I have also been able to get Fedora Core 22 to share a volume of terabyte size to my VAX/VMS 7.3 and newer systems. For the VAX/VMS 7.3, I had to enable NFS V2 on it.

For info-zip, you will want something more current than the freeware CDs to get support for larger archives.

Eisner was upgraded to the current Multinet Release. As part of that a new host key was generated. The old key was incompatible with newer Linux.

ssh to eisner is now giving (on linux) "WARNING: REMOTE HOST IDENTIFICATION HAS CHANGED!" , Has the server key in fact changed ?

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.
