Is there a good/reliable place to procure complete and fully working VAX hardware to run OpenVMS/VMS and Decnet/DEC LAT on? I am hoping to get some non ethernet connectivity solutions too, just to attach to some of my other non-ethernet systems.

Depends on how much you want to spend, too. Scrounging on lists will net you a much cheaper system. Note that DEC was in DIX, so most of the systems will be Ethernet-equipped, especially at the low end. Some MicroVAX and MicroVAX-inspired VAXes will have DSSI, which will support clustering as well as storage, and larger machines will have CI (again, mainly for clustering and storage), but you'll probably have to go up to a bigVAX to get anything alternative - I know XMI had a FDDI adapter)

Does anybody want a microvax 3100 with 1Gb HDD? I bought it to start using OpenVMS again but have had such trouble getting hold of the software I'm giving up. Free to collect to a good home.

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.
