This is very true. Its unclear what we give up by doing it however. I guess
what I would like is a "do the full test every 10 boots or so." Anyone have
the VLC manual handy?
Now for my wierd VLC question. DKA700 ?!?!?
Shouldn't a disk set to SCSI
ID #7 cause problems?
Nope. The VLC sets the CPU's internal SCSI address to 6 for some reason
(don't try putting a Sun CD on it without checking!) Unlike machines with
dual SCSI busses the internal bus is not terminated so you will need an
external terminator. And because the ethernet is so close to the SCSI
connector you may only be able to use the DEC brand terminator which is
narrow along the sides. Mine was missing one and until I stole one off the
TZ50 I had a ribbon cable one kludged in.
I am still looking for a VLC disk tray if anyone has one.
At least tonite after work I'll finally be able to
start my project! First
step will be adding a 2GB HD (what the hey, it's the only thing bigger than
the RZ23L in it that will fit that I don't currently have in use), and
loading out VMS. I'm dying to see how DECwindows performs on this sucker!
I'm not quite there yet but I have ordered the Montagar CD with the layered
products on it and VMS 7.2.
This is now my fastest operational VAX :^)
6 vups and counting!
