Nice... wish I had a copy of Ultrix for the VAXstaton 3100 M38 here.
It's got 32mb of memory and a DEC DSP3105 (RZ27? 1.05gb) as the boot
disk and 100mb as a second disk. It's got dual SCSI busses and the
8 plane color graphics option which I'm driving a DEC mono monitor.
Perhaps I should order the hobbyist VMS distribution,
put a different
hard drive in the system, attach a CD-ROM to it (will any SCSI CD-ROM
drive work?), and install VMS. Could I then do a backup to SCSI tape
over DECnet? Is there much of an advantage to upgrading to OpenVMS
from VAX/VMS 5.5?
The hobbyist version has a ton of layered products and the security
on 7.2 seems pretty good compared with 5.5. It is a lot bigger and
slower than 11/780's running 3.6 -- I can tell you.
But I've got DECnet, TCP/IP and all the languages getting loaded right
I've also got another VAXstation 3100 M38 with 16mb I'd be looking
to part with soon -- but the ethernet switch between thick and thin net
is cracked and half missing.
If anyone's interested in it let me know...
