Re: VMS 5.1.1 - Porting the existing application to a new OS

Lim,

I know that that HP Malaysia has VMS experts - A customer of mine (a telco equipment manufacturer) did set up a production plant in Malaysia and Digital and later Compaq provided the customer with local VMS support. I'm confident that HP can do the same for you today.

Re: VMS 5.1.1 - Porting the existing application to a new OS

Lim,
The machine has an uptime of only 33 days. Its date is also wrong.

TK50 is a tape drive
DKA100 Would be a SCSI Drive
Third one is also a disk drive. (maybe internal to the box).

Please check the following:

Memory:
$show mem

Configured disks:
$show device d/full

CPU
$show cpu

and just to make sure its not a part of cluster:
$show cluster

To check you application startup sequence:
$type/page sys$startup:systartup_v5.com

This would give yopu a basic idea on what is the Hardware/OS setup like.

Also you might want to check the DECnet settings:

$mc ncl sho exec

and for TCP/IP settings

$ucx sho interface

For you network card:

$mc lancp show device /char

Lim, some alternate commands that you may need, depending on your setup:

$ MC NCP SHOW EXEC CHAR (you may want to keep some of this information to yourself, the output will include passwords)

$ SHOW DEVICE E !to show network adapters

Lim,

There could be another solution - I thought I posted this already but it could have been on another forum elsewehere.
There is a VAX emulator that runs on both Alpha (on VMS!) and Windows (a port to Linux is possible if paid for); all it does is: it emulates the HARDWARE and therefore you can leave your system and application environment WITHOUT ANY CHANGE; it's called Charon-VAX. Check www.softresint.com for some details. On HP hardware (either Alpha or Intel) it's fully supported by HP. They _should_ know.
