I received an RX4640 for my birthday today (ok a few weeks early). 4 cpu, 12Gb ram, 2x 72Gb discs. It also appears to have 2 smart array controllers and some fibre channel cards (pci-x)
I put VSI VMS on it.
It?s going to be ANBUS on the HECnet.
Boy is it loud!
Right, now back to that CI for SIMH that I parked a while back....
? I'm tinkering with putting together a MicroVAX I system. They only
ran on a few versions of VMS.
? Does anyone have a copy of VMS handy for any version between V4.1 and
V5.1? On HECnet would be great.

I am trying to get DECnet working on a simulated VAX 780 (with simh) with a
3.x version of VMS. This is largely for nostalgic reasons.
I have the version of VMS 3.0 from John Dundas that Supratim posted nearly
a year ago. I have also built a VMS 3.0 system by installing VMS from the
VMS 3.0 distribution tape. Both of those systems seem to work well.
However I am failing to find a way of getting DECnet working. I have a
DECnet end node key (and a routing key, come to that) from
http://iamvirtual.ca/VAX11/VAX-11-software.html but that says that it only
works for VMS 3.4 or later. I did try it on 3.0 anyway, but it did not get
DECnet to work. It complains about needing a license.
Can anyone help me either upgrade my VMS 3.0 system to VMS 3.4 or higher
(or just install the higher version from scratch), or help me find a DECnet
key that works with VMS 3.0.
