Tru64 to OpenVms (!)

Tru64 to OpenVms (!)

Have a couple of Vms clusters (6.2 and 7.3) and one Tru64 5.1 cluster. Considering (non)future of tru64, satisfaction with Vms, etc. I am trying to get a price quotation from HP Argentina to convert my Tru64 DS20+AS800 Cluster to Vms 7/8.

Whilst waiting for reply can any one tell me if there are any special 'offers' for this type of conversion or do I have to pay full licencies for everything and discard the Tru64 licences which I will no longer require.

Re: Tru64 to OpenVms (!)


there are license trade-in programs as part of the Alpha Retain Trust program:


Tru64 to OpenVMS license migration does not seem to be covered, but contact information is provided. It would be worth to try to get an answer from HP...

Re: Tru64 to OpenVms (!)


Using the current HP Software license trade-in and transfers policies, we can convert

1. Tru64 UX on Alpha --to-- OpenVMS on I64 or HP-UX on I64/HP9000.

2. Alpha/VAX OpenVMS to I64/OpenVMS or I64/HP9000/HP-UX

On the Hp's Software license trade-in and transfers policies, no information about converting Tru64/Alpha to OpenVMS/ALpha.

Better as Mr.Volker said, you can speak to HP on this.
