can you please help me out with creating image of disk on Alpha station, and transferring it over to virtual Alpha? I really would apricate it.
I think I am on the right track but not able to access the image which I create on the second disk.
I used back/image to create image of drive to another drive, how to get that image now....?
I am using reflection software to get files from alpha but can't get to the second drive files.
Was wondering if you had any success in getting an image? I am in the same situation of trying to create a disk image to another disk. My goal was to create the image and then transfer over FTP to be used on FreeAXP.
BACKUP/IMAGE is a good way to transfer a drive. The trick is having a VMS system on the FreeAXP side to receive the image file. You might get away with booting VMS from an installation CD and using that to initialize a disk, FTP the backup image across, and then restore the image. I personally think it's easier to build a temporary VMS helper system under FreeAXP and use that to facilitate the transfer and restore.
