The Question is:
What is the latest release of OpenVMS-AXP? I am running v6.2 on an Alpha 2000
4/275 (single CPU with 192MB RAM) Are there any issues with an upgrade to the
latest version of VMS for this platform? Also running UCX v4.1... will that
upgrade along with t
he OS, or is that a separate install? What about Fortran v7.1? Please
The Answer is :
For information on current versions, please see the Software
Rollout Report website referenced in the OpenVMS FAQ. Search
the text-format FAQ for SWROLL or other similar string.
Your AlphaServer 2000 is supported by the current release of
OpenVMS Alpha, assuming sufficient available disk and memory.
As of this writing, the current OpenVMS Alpha release is
V7.3-1, with V7.3-2 presently in testing and the current
TCP/IP Services release is V5.3. You will have to upgrade
your TCP/IP Services version.
For information on minimum versions of Fortran and other
layered products, please see the rollout report. You
will want to upgrade your Fortran version.
Before upgrading, please review the New Features and the
Release Notes documentation for the various releases
involved -- the OpenVMS Wizard generally recommends
reading not only the releases that you upgrade onto, but
the intermediate releases. For those OpenVMS releases
you upgrade onto on your way to the current release, please
read the OpenVMS upgrade and installation documentation.
Common OpenVMS upgrade paths are referenced in the FAQ.
