I attempted to download the "Installation Guide for OpenVMS VAX Hobbyist" but the .pdf file I get looks corrupted, or at least I am unable to open it.
Where can I get a copy?
Regards

I don't have the CD's handy, but I think it would appear on the VAX hobbyist CD. ISTR many years ago, accessing such a document on the Alpha Hobbyist CD.

I'll do some more hunting around on the website here.

It looks as though the Alpha PDF installation guide is fine, but it's not much help for those who want to install VAX, which is a slightly different install procedure.

The good news is that the installation procedure, VAX or ALPHA, contains enough information and helpful prompts, so that installation is do-able.

Or you could wait for a helpful person who might have a non-corrupt copy. I've not installed VAX since 2002, so I wouldn't be of much help.

This link on the SIMH website:

<http://www.wherry.com/gadgets/retrocomputing/vax-simh.html>

contains a complete VAX installation example. Perhaps it would be of some use?

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.
