Results of OpenVMS Year 2000 Analysis

Investigation of the OpenVMS Version 7.1, Version 6.2, and Version 5.5-2 operating systems is now complete; no new limitations were found in our investigations of the earlier versions of the operating system. The OpenVMS base operating systems are generally Year 2000 ready except for a few minor limitations in some older components. Year 2000 enhancement kits for OpenVMS Version 7.1, Version 6.2, and Version 5.5-2 are now available.

Table 1 alphabetically lists the OpenVMS product families covered by our investigation, gives the status of each product's investigation, and notes whether any limitations have been reported. To learn the status of specific products within these product families, check the Year 2000 layered software products database.


Starting in April 1998, all new products and versions are Year 2000 ready, even if they are not listed in this table.
