Re: HP Open VMS support

Jessie,

ES40's & ES80's (and Alpha platforms in general), not until at least 2012 (and pobably well beyond).

V7.3 and V7.3-1 are "best effort" support

V7.3-2 is "prior version" support

V8.2 is current support. It will go to Prior version support when the version after next is released.

The OpenVMS Support Chart
http://h71000.www7.hp.com/openvms/openvms_supportchart.html

OpenVMS Alpha V7.3-2 is on long term support. Other V7.x are not.

I don't expect V8.2 to be on PVS as V8.2-1 is stated as a replacement. The chart says TBD.
You should be running V8.2-1 on all your VMS I64 systems. Its significantly better than V8.2.
