What is the easiest way to copy an OpenVMS DVD? Can I use a straight DVD copy program, or is it more complicated than that?

using VMS or a lesser platform?

Using VMS I would try

$ MOUNT/FOR dvddevicename
$ COPY dvddevicename openvms831h1.image
$ DISMOUNT dvddevicename
then as a check
$ LD CONNECT openvms831h1.image
will create a LD device that can be mounted so
$ MOUNT/OVER=ID LDxxx
should mount something that looks like the DVD. You can then use DVD writing software of your choice (current VMS has COPY/RECORDABLE).

Thanks, much appreciated. I was afraid that it would be more complicated than that. Making backup copies of your VMS media is perfectly legal AFAIK

I have done this under Windows XP using Roxio 9

I wanted to have a backup copy of my OpenVMS 8.2-something DVD, so I copied it using Roxio 9. The resultant copy worked perfectly as I have been able to use it to boot my Integrity rx1620

If you wish to use this method to copy your OpenVMS related DVD's there are just a few things you need to know. These are :-

1. Roxio provides two methods of making a disk copy. One method involves reading the source disk in a manner which retains an image on the PC hard drive - this didn't work for me (It repeatedly failed half way through the process). The other more usual method involves a disk to disk copy where you first insert the source disk which is then read and ejected at which time you are asked to insert the target disk. This method worked flawlessly. I have used this method many times.

2. Before executing the copy process, you need to change Roxio's default copy method to "RAW" (A selectable advanced copy option) This causes the copy process to do a bit for bit copy of the source media.

Other DVD copying products may be able to do the same job as Roxio although I obviously haven't tried them.

I hope you find this information useful

Infrarecorder is free (GPL) program for Windows that can do a RAW copy of the DVD.

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.
