Rx7640 and Rx8640 access to DVD drive



I have an Rx7640, and Rx8640 that run the OpenVMS v8.3-1H1 operating system. I am trying to access the DVD drive on the server.


When I try and mount it from within OpenVMS, the drive goes into mount verify.


If I try and boot off the openVMS DVDs, after starting the CPUs it keeps on resetting the adapter.


Are there any restriction limitations with accessing the DVD drive on this type of servers?

It sounds like either the media is bad or the DVD drive has failed.  Try with an alternate DVD, if that fails, replace the DVD drive.  

If you don't have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over? Reach me at first_name + "." + last_name at sysmanager net
