Just started playing with simh and for the life of me I can't get the initial boot from an ISO to work properly.

I have booted the iso, no problems there; then it's as if there's no command interpreter loaded to do the initial restore:

>>>b dua2

I'm using simh installed on Fedora 34 but tried on Ubunto too; same result. Tried different iso; same result. Tried a nice new git hub built version as well.

Have tried both "VAX simulator V3.11-0" and "MicroVAX 3900 simulator V4.0-0 Current git commit id: 4b03e149" with same results.

Anyone out there with any ideas?

Showing my age; it's been so long; BACKUP is the only command that works! Was expecting proper command interpreter (like Alpha iso boot!)

Been a while, but I thought I could boot into a read only VMS on a CD and get a menu or DCL similar to on Alpha / IA64.

I think you may need to set some boot flags though.

The command you need is like

backup dua3:vms073.b/save_set dua0:




but obviously change your device number and save set name.

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

Anyone know what happened to FAFNER.DYNDS.ORG? I had a hobbyist account here but can longer access the site.

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.
