As per the subject, I have an Alphaserver1000A 5/333 that is now surplus to requirements. This is currently located in the UK, on the south coast.
The system on offer has been running V7.3-1 for years, but has now been replaced by an XP1000. Currently sitting (switched off) with V8.3 freshly installed, but no licences. A copy of my V8.3 distribution disk could be included if doing so is legal. You would need to get your own licenses.
This machine does have one known problem. It works fine with Bcache disabled, but just beeps at you if the jumper is removed. While there has to be a performance impact of the Bcache being disabled, I do not notice it in normal use.
Alphaserver 1000A 5/333, 768 Mb Memory,
PBXGA-AA/AN (ZLXp 21030),
1xTLZ07 <<< I have never used this, I don't know if it works...!
I also have some disks I want to sell, which could be used to replace the A1000a internal drives if someone wanted them enough..
1X FAULTY RZ1EA-VW, case OK, needs new drive.
Finally, some more serious stuff that I would prefer to sell as a single item.
( BA356-JD containing 1XBA35X-HH 180W PSU. )
( BA35X-FA Ultrascsi personality module with BN38C-02 cable. )
( 6xRZ1FC-VW, 36.4Gb, currently in the BA356 )
No takers (yet...) Can anyone suggest an another place that hobbyists who do not look in here may watch ?
I am happy to wait a bit longer for a real hobbyist to answer before I offer it to the sharks on Ebay... :-)
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?
