Announcing OpenVMS v8.3-1H1 for Integrity servers!

HP is pleased to announce the release of OpenVMS version 8.3-1H1 for Integrity servers, the 30th anniversary edition of the OpenVMS operating system! OpenVMS version 8.3-1H1 includes all the capabilities of its predecessor, and introduces new features and hardware support. Major new features include:
  • Enhancements for support of the HP Integrity BL860c Server Blade, including new function codes in system services
  • Support for the latest revisions of the Dual-Core Intel® Itanium® processors for these servers:
    • HP Integrity rx2660 server
    • HP Integrity rx3600 server

    • HP Integrity rx7640 server
    • HP Integrity rx8640 server
    • HP Integrity Superdome server SD64B

  • System management, including provisioning, providers, and WBEM infrastructure: OpenVMS on HP Integrity rx3600 and rx6600 servers and on HP Integrity BL860c Server Blades can be managed from HP Systems Insight Manager (HP SIM) version 5.1 or later. HP SIM runs as a management server on HP ProLiant servers running the Microsoft® Windows® operating system. OpenVMS provides software support so that OpenVMS looks and feels similar to server blades running the HP-UX operating system.
  • Support for USB 2.0 HIGH Speed: increases the data transfer rate from the USB-attached DVDs in the rx3600, rx6600, and rx2660 systems as well as on future platforms
  • Support for virtual media (vMedia): use vMedia to do initial system installation on a system without a built-in DVD, or remote installation on a system physically located elsewhere
  • Support for a Graphics Console: provides a method to boot HP Integrity systems using a graphics display and a USB keyboard and mouse

For a complete list of the new features in the OpenVMS version 8.3-1H1 release, see HP OpenVMS v8.3-1H1 for Integrity servers new features and release notes.
