  • They include local and wide area domain support, enabling OpenVMS to participate fully in a Windows network
  • They allow Windows users — using native Microsoft products and utilities such as Windows Explorer - easy, seamless access to OpenVMS file and printer resources
  • They allow operators and administrators using Windows administration utilities on a Windows server or client workstation to administer Advanced Server users and the shared disks and printers
