The Question is:
We have purchased a quantity of ES45
Servers running a VMS v 7.3 OS
We want to have a GUI access to these servers via Microsoft Windows clients
We found out that such accessibility could be provided by the PATHWORKS Kit
We have been supplied with a variety of CDs that are related to the Compaq
machines and to the VMS operating system, we are not sure if we were supposed
to get the PATHWORKS kit with them. We found a reference to purchased licenses
concerning PARTHWOKS in
our stores without having the related CDs
Could you kindly inform us about the procedures to check what CDs we should get
based upon the contracts with the local provider?
Is there a facility for us to directly contact you for inquires about technical
support or being in lighted before purchasing further products as we are a
significant customer for HP products (Servers, Workstations, OS..etc) with
Various Enterprise sites
The Answer is :
You will want to use the PATHWORKS 32 client kit for the eXcursion
X Windows display capabilities.
PATHWORKS server (also known as Advanced Server) is required for
host capabilities for Windows systems, such as print and storage
services. For your stated purposes, Advanced Server is not needed.
If, on the other hand, you wish to configure the OpenVMS systems
to offer print or disk services, you will require the installation
of Advanced Server and (likely) TCP/IP Services.
The OpenVMS Wizard does not know what you have ordered, nor what
you have received, and thus has no way to answer that portion of
your question. Shipments will normally contain a bill of materials,
of course. For details on what you have ordered, please check
with your reseller.
The OpenVMS Wizard would encourage you to request direct assistance
from your reseller, as it appears you are unfamiliar with OpenVMS
and Advanced Server -- HP or your reseller can offer you services
ranging from training and software installations to on-going system
management and out-sourcing tasks.
