IDE Disks and controllers on OpenVMS?

» close window

The Question is:

Does OpenVMS Support IDE disk drives as either a
System disk or a Data Disk?

The Answer is :

  The OpenVMS FAQ section "ALPHA23.  OpenVMS and Personal Workstation
  IDE bootstrap?" might be of interest.  Additionally, the AlphaStation
  XP900, AlphaStation DS10, and AlphaServer DS10 -- all basically the
  same system, and all supported by OpenVMS -- typically ship with an
  IDE-based disk configuration.
  The list of supported devices is included in the OpenVMS Software
  Product Description (SPD) -- pointers to the website that serves the
  various SPDs are included in the OpenVMS FAQ.
  IDE-related topics here in Ask The Wizard include the following:
  (1473), (1490), (1771), (1944), (2566), (2933), (2978), (3750),
  (4291), (5118), and (5125).  There are likely others, as well.
