Re: open VMS


I propose you to start with this link:

(It is mentioned on the end of the OpenVMS forum pages in useful links > OpenVMS documentation)

A login to a VMS system and the HELP command will also help you for the first steps.

Re: open VMS

I'd start with the OpenVMS home page at

At you can find a couple of presentations that can help introduce you to the architecture of VMS:
o Introduction to OpenVMS Technology
o OpenVMS Clusters: Theory of Operation

The series of books by Ruth Goldenberg, et al, on VMS Internals and Data Structures are good for learning how VMS works inside. For OpenVMS Clusters, the book VAXcluster Principles by Roy G. Davis is excellent.
