Re: ALPHA SERVER ES40/OPENVMS

The boot root and the boot flags are separated by a comma (,).
>>> set boot_osflags 0,0

Re: ALPHA SERVER ES40/OPENVMS

Excuse me, but what is the point in trying it with a dot (.) instead?

Re: ALPHA SERVER ES40/OPENVMS

you are missing the point.

the problem is with memory Intlv.

with one way memory intlv the system is booting okay.

with two or more memory intlv the system is crashing.

Re: ALPHA SERVER ES40/OPENVMS

I would agree with Uwe. You should correct the known problems before going any further. There is a clear error statement about the bootflags. Heck, maybe the error you're seeing later is a side-effect...

Re: ALPHA SERVER ES40/OPENVMS

the es40 is booting fine with 1gb of memory
where there is no interleve taking place.
however with 2gb which interleve is 1 the system is not booting.

thank for your help anyway.
any new good idea is appriciated.
