This look like your container file for DUA3: is corrupted. Could be because of a FTP in non-binary mode, or other problem with creating your DUA3. The VAX console is looking at the disk image, and it doesn't look like an ODS-2 file structure.

Not a new post, just a fragment from another post on a different topic. These are being automagically moderated out along with the other spam posts.

Comp.os.vms has even longer response times from people finding old posts on google groups.

$! Fix_Backup_Saveset_Attributes -- Fix Backup save sets sds 15-may-2010
$!___________________________________________________________________________
$!
$! When Backup Save Sets go through an FTP transfer, typically the record
$! attributes get mangled to be a maximum record size of 512 and the
$! logical record length of 512.
$!
$! When Backup Save Sets get created, the range of allowable record lengths
$! range from 2048-65535. The BACKUP command has a /BLOCK qualifier that
$! specifies this value. The default is 8192 for distination tape drives, and
$! 32256 for destination disk files.

No more VAX hobbyist licenses. Community licenses for Alpha/IA64/X86_64 VMS Software Inc. Commercial VMS software licenses for VAX available from HPE.

Just re-visiting.. No more hobbyist licenses? Is that from vmssoftware.com, no 'community' licenses?

I recall that the disks failed on the public access VMS systems that included Fafner

At one time, didn't this web site have a job board? I would love to use my legacy skills one last time in my career.

Eisner, which is currently being moved, got an SSH update and the keys were updated to more modern encryption standards.
