I was wondering if anyone knows if MVP systems is still involved with the OpenVMS hobbyist program.

Two weeks ago, I requested a Hobbyist License PAK for JAMS, and I still have not received it.

They still have on their site a page (http://www.mvpsi.com/Hobby.aspx) where you can request a Hobbyist license.

Does anyone know more than "It's a Black Hole!"?

Not offhand - I received the JAMS License PAK last year, and haven't paid any attention since. The license is set to expire in August of this year.

I'd suggest "pinging" them again.

I did "ping" them, and I have the license now.

MVP Systems Hobbyist administrator, John Voterro sent me a note to let me know that the license was sent, and that if I needed a license for an Itanium system to let him know, because "we haven't built that in to our standard hobbyist generation job yet."

Are Itanium systems on eBay yet? smiley Cheap?

I seem to remember Island (a forum sponsor) advertising that they had some IA64 systems possibly in the hobbyist price ranges.

Several other resellers also may have specials on low end IA64 systems that can run VMS.

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.
