OpenVMS 7.2.2 or 7.3 operating system download

Hello,
after a crash on an alpha server 800, i need operating system CDROM to reinstall some composants. (i don't find it anywhere in my archive)

Is there a way to download OpenVMS 7.2.2 or 7.3 operating system somewhere ?

thanks in advance

Yes, if you have a support contract, it SHOULD be possible( I had read it, but I never tester).

Simply ask HP, they can provide Vms 5.any or later.

Keep in mind that 7.2-2 or 7.3 are not supported versions, so I guess you will have to pay.

Philippe,

you may try to find a friendly OpenVMS system manager within your local DECUS (nowadays: Connect) organization, who may make a copy of the CD or otherwise help you out.

If you have a bootable CD from another version, that should be enough to boot and restore an image backup.

Hi.

I came across your message as regards having 7.2.2.  Any chance you could copy the disc and send for a small fee?

Reason.-

Trying to get a Multia working with openvms. Response from hobbyist forum.-

#########################

See the hobby registrations for license keys.
Unfortunately older versions are not available from the HP hobbyist download site.
I do not know that the special sauce for Multia made it into the 8.x releases.
Normally if you can get a VAX or Alpha emulator configured as a cluster, you can network boot another VAX or Alpha to it as a LAVC cluster member.
Have to do some manual hacks to get that to work cross platform or cross version.
Multia is last known to boot VMS 7.2-2 with special multia update patch that will fit on a floppy.
There are reports of people getting the multia update patch to work with Alpha VMS 7.3.
You might want to see on comp.os.vms newsgroup if someone near you can help sneakernet the stuff needed.
