I recently acquired an Alphastation 200 4/233. I replaced the original disk with an RZ29 but that's still not a lot of disk space. I'd like to be able to add more storage with out having to locate SCSI drives and external cabinets. This system only has SCSI interfaces.
Is there a list of USB, ATAPI or SATA interface cards that are supported by VMS? I don't care if booting is supported. I just want to hook up some drives for data.
IIRC, Intel-base USB cards would be accesable but I doubt these are of any use to connect a USB-drive, unless you write the driver yourself.
ATAPI might be if they are based on a particular chip - but I don't remember which oen (Cypres? Intel?)
SATA: None, To new
Anothe rpossibility, if you can get hold of it: an extra Wide-SCSI card with external connector, and BA35x shelf and IO module - use the blue one (WideSCSI) and you can add up to disk in there. Or get yourself a HSZ controller and shelve(s).
An Alphastation 200 can hold one or 2 extra disks, IIRC.
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.
