The next step….
FreeAXP 188.8.131.523 with OpenVPN-2.5.0-I601-amd64.msi
You know how to install Windows10
You can find here how to install FreeAXp and the extra NIC.
After you have got this all installed it is time to install OpenVMS 8.4
My default setup;
dka0 – cdrom (iso file)
dka100 – System disk (rz27)
dka200 – Data/user disk (rz27)
After the initial installation:
$ set def sys$system
$ mc authorize
$ @sys$manager:net$configure advanced
If you’ve configured everything the right way and started the network it is easy to check if everything is ok
$ set host 0
and if you have another node running
$ set host 1.1 (or whatever address the node that is already running has)
$ edit sys$startup:NET$DTSS_CLERK_STARTUP.NCL
!ENABLE DTSS SET CLOCK TRUE
Always nice to have a Batchqueue
$ init/queu/batch/autostart_on=(“nodename”::) sys$batch
Now initialise & mount the DATA/User disk
$ INITIALIZE /STRUCTURE_LEVEL=5 DKA200: DATA
$ mount/system dka200 data disk200
check the output on your screen
I forgot to use SYMAN to have the sys$system:startup.log configured. This is a nice way to see if there are any problems during startup.
$ mc sysman
SYSMAN> startup set options/output=file/check
My guess is you know how to do this.
After I started the network it is time for an interesting topic in this file;
I work on a MacBook Air and my favourite terminal emulation program is iTerm2
And just like the previous time I ended up with an OpenVMS node unwilling to communicate. So I decided to switch back to version 184.108.40.2067. Installed it, booted the node and everything communicates again. Weird.
