The Question is:
I am attempting to build a home system.
I have a Miata MB that seems to support VMS
I need a scsi controller.
I am on a limited budget though.
I might try to run Tru64 at some time also
The Answer is :
The Personal Workstation -au series systems are supported by OpenVMS
and by Tru64 UNIX -- please see earlier discussions of the -a and the
-au series for some additional details.
Without details of the particular "Miata" motherboard involved here,
an answer specific to this particular motherboard is not possible --
the "Miata" name applies to a series of platforms, some supported
by OpenVMS and some not.
Various Compaq SCSI controllers are supported by OpenVMS -- details
on hardware can generally be found at the Compaq and other websites
listed in the OpenVMS FAQ.
The KZPBA UltraSCSI controller was among the most popular choices
for the early Personal Workstation -au configurations. (Various of
the Personal Workstation configurations included a KZPBA.)
