Seeking OpenVMS license information?

» close window

The Question is:

I've "inherited" an Alpha 2100 running unix and an Alphastation 500 running NT
 and need to convert them to run OpenVMS.  I've tried installing spare no_share
 Alpha-VMSuser licenses (500 units) and even got a VMS-Base availability type A
 60 unit license (f
rom a former VAX) to load on the 500 with no complaints (it needs a 12 unit
 type A traditional license according to SHOW LICENSE/CHARGE) but the VMS 7.1
 system I've installed still tells me VMS use is unauthorized.
   I remember trading in a few VAX 8000 or 6000 licenses when I got my first
 Alpha systems but I can't even find product license price listings for the
 older Alpha models; can I still get software licenses for them?  Or should I
 add the few dozen Alpha Li
cense PAKs I have to the couple hundred VAX License PAKs I have and wallpaper
 my lab manager's office?

The Answer is :

      Please get correct the correct and authorized set of licenses for the
      AlphaServer series system.  Please contact your reseller, or
      please contact sales, for assistance and for pricing.
