Console Prompts for Time and Date, Boot Disk?

» close window

The Question is:

I have a VAX 4000-200 that won't autoboot.  All the necessary switches (break
 Enable/Disable, Power-up mode) and settings (BOOT, BFLAG, HALT) are correctly
 set, but the system still goes into interactive mode, asking for the date,
 language and disk to boo
t from.
At one time, the system autobooted without a problem, but now it won't.  Am I
 still missing something, or what do I need to do...

The Answer is :

  Please contact your hardware service organization, as it appears
  that your processor hardware has failed -- this is clearly not an
  OpenVMS issue, it appears to be a question of a failed battery.
