The Question is:
I've alpha 500au hardware with OPENVMS7.1-1H2 . I would like to upgarde current
Harddisk 4.3GB to 18GB . But vms7.1-1h2 doesn't recognize 18GB HDD ( Segate
ST318437LW ) . 18GB HDD can be recognized at ALPHA console mode ( Bule screen
show device can show
seagate HDD modle number ).So I think the problem could be from VMS7.1-1H2 ."
SCSI05_71 for vms7.1-1h2 " patch file for vms7.1-1h2 SCSI devices has been
installed already . I don't know what's thing i missed ?
The Answer is :
The OpenVMS Wizard would encourage a review of the supported devices
for the Personal Workstation 500au series, and would encourage a
review of device-size information present in the OpenVMS FAQ. For
larger disks, particular versions and ECOs can be required, and
the FAQ has details and ECO kit names and supporting information.
Use of unsupported disks -- these devices can be hotter than the
cooling capabilities of the enclosure -- can be problematic in older
and unsupported enclosures. (Thermal failures also tend not to be
immediate failures. Cooling also tends not to be uniform, and
this can lead to restrictions in the storage bays that the disks
can be utilized within, and in the quantities of these disk devices
that can be used, etc.)
