RX1600 & OpenVMS

I have an RX2600 with 512 MB, that I want to run OpenVMS on. I was able to install the latest firmware (for V8.2-1) and booted the OpenVMS DVD (V8.3-1H1) on both the VGA console and the serial console. When it comes up the time question I lose the keyboard - the system seems to hang.

The RX2600 has 2 unlabeled USB ports and I have tried all combinations. The keyboard works at the console prompts (can't test the mouse).

Any ideas?

Hi Stephen,

Check to make sure the EFI console variables are set up properly for input devices. Check section 3 pgs 19-21 in the attached document link. Use the EFI menus to change the settings there. I recommend using just one Active console device.

Re: RX1600 & OpenVMS

Sorry - My original headline said RX1600 and that is what I was talking about (I also am having problems with a RX2600). Was your comment directed at the RX2600?

Re: RX1600 & OpenVMS

The headline said RX1600 and my comment asked about a RX2600. I will start a new thread.
