I have picked up a military ruggedized 8250 and am getting it in shape to run. Had to blow the sand out of it- must have see service in some interesting places!
Anyway, i cleaned contacts, reseated boards and found the only casualty is the T1003 board in the KDB50 board set. CPU, MS820, DEBNA and 6 of the ICP-6132 serial cards. This machine has circular mil type connectors for all the interfaces, so I am looking for cab kits for the KDB50 set so I can hook up an old RA90 or something, until I can either build or beg an original cable set from the manufacturer (hoping they have some laying around).
A few thing I need help on are the pinouts for the DEBNA(t1034) to fabricate a cable to a TK50, and the ethernet aui cable...can't find a pdf of a manual anywhere on web. Help!
Anyone hear of, or have experience with one of these machines?
Anyone willing to 'donate' a RA90, tk50, cables or tk50 vms media- I am willing to trade for IBM/Lenovo parts, Dell stuff, etc.
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.
