Please note the trailing "." at the end of the directory specifications; this creates what are known as "rooted logicals". You can now treat disk$software and disk$data as "virtual disks", which (I think) was your intention. disk$software: maps to dka100:[central.software], for example, while disk$software:[samba] maps to dka100:[central.software.samba]
You'll want to pick a different logical name for your disk upon mounting, something like:
mount/system/noassist dka100 disk1
Then you can replace "dka100" in the above DEFINE statements with "disk1"
oh! i haven't yet booted the system since init'ing the disk. is there an OS file of some sort i need to add any mount commands into to mount it on boot up ? or is login.com the place to do it ?[/quote:88dbfe8e4d]
The DEFINE commands should be located in SYS$STARTUP:SYLOGICALS.COM. The MOUNT command should be placed before the DEFINE commands, so that the define commands can take advantage of the volume logical created by MOUNT.
Others will probably want to chip in here, as well...
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?
