DECmigrate image translation? (VAX to Alpha)

» close window

The Question is:

We intend to replace our old VAXSTATIONS with Alpha VMS systems and will
still need to run programs in VAX VMS binary form.  What is the Software
that runs on a Alpha VMS workstation that will allow use of a VAX VMS

The Answer is :

  The translation tool is DECmigrate, but there are definite limitations
  on what OpenVMS VAX images can be translated, and on what support is
  available for DECmigrate itself -- the OpenVMS Wizard strongly recommends
  moving to native tools and OpenVMS Alpha images whenever possible.
