Hi,

I have two dvd. I'm trying to boot to install openvms in my integrity. I get into the boot menu and try to boot, but then the screen goes blank. I'm not sure what to do. I did installed Debian there and it works fine. (Before getting the openvms media.)

any idea?
thanks,
Francisco

Hi,

the DVD was created with an iso image. each iso image is for a different dvd. one for the os and the other one for the layer products.

I'm new to Integrity. What I do (which was the way that I installed Debian linux) is to select the boot manager. then the cd and I browse the boot image that you had mention.

I get the following error

Error: CONOUT device path cannot be set to multiple devices

Warning: Select Console Device path from the boot manager.

How do I install the newest firmware? where can I find it

thanks,
Francisco

Hi,
thank you. I will take a look.
I was wondering about the ISO Image that I burned. I used Toast for mac os x to burn the iso image into a dvd. The disk utility didn't recognize it. Now, I'm thinking, that maybe I should had use a different tool... what do you think?
thanks

Hi,

I think my media may be bad. I'll try to get working media.

Anyways, about the firmware, I read all your pages you sent. So, I found the page where the firmware is there.
now, I have two integrity servers.
The one that I have been trying is the zx6000.
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=82069&prodTypeId=12454&prodSeriesId=82067&swLang=13&taskId=135&swEnvOID=54

but is not clear which one do I have to download

for example, my EFI is 1.10 , and my firmware version is 2.01

I also try the conconsole (and console alone) but it doesn't work. I'm able to issue other commands in the shell, such as fs0:

I'm still lost about the firmware.

I'll try to get the media again.
thanks

On the ZX6000 and ZX2600, as recommended by HP, you must install
each firmware component in stages from what is found to current, no
skipping versions. Google HP ZX6000/ZX2600 firmware for the most
current HP site and read the release notes.

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.
