Theres a reliable card called the AztecMonster made in Japan. OpenVMS's block size matches exactly the internal blocksize used on these CF cards (512byte) so they may operate well.

Spoke to the creator and he said it has been reported to work well for VaxStations.

Third party SCSI is hit or miss. To quote the man from Hoffmanlabs, neither of the two 'S's in the acronym are for "standard".

VAX/VMS has specific requirements for SCSI drives.

Alpha can be a little more liberal, unless you want to use dual host SCSI.

I've got one of the monsters. Works okay in the VLC, but the 4000-m90 is giving me no end of trouble. Did a stand-alone backup from hobbyist CD..that worked. Was nice and fast. Rebooted, m90 came up, told it to boot off dka100 ..and after it passed the volume's write bitmap verification it sat there for 2mins, then declares that the volume is OFFLINE and proceeds no further.

Ideas?

About the same results I'm getting with an AztecMonster in a MicroVAX 3100/10. Seems fine until the OS tries to write anything to it, for VMS and two BSDs.

Had less luck when I tried it in an old SPARC. Right away, I get a message that the SCSI bus is hung, and it doesn't even show up under "probe-scsi", unlike "SHOW DEV" on the MicroVAX.

I'm hearing good things about a "SCSI2SD" board sold by an Australian guy. Has anyone tried one of those in a VAX? I've heard they even work in Symbolics LISP machines. Seems to be sold-out right now, though.

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.

lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?
