OpenVMS 8.3 Starting out..

When you first boot OpenVMS after the install you must enter PAK’s.
This can be done via the serial console  to get the base and network PAK’s installed. You can then later install the additional PAK’s via SSH.

The to PAK’s you need are (IA64) :-
* OPENVMS-I64-FOE
* UCX-IP-CLIENT

This will get the base system and networking online.
To register,view and edit new or existing PAK’s you can use the following command ensure you are logged in as “system”:-
$ @SYS$UPDATE:VMSLICENSE
select option “1” to add new PAK’s and use the information in the PAK file.
select option “4” to view the installed PAK’s best to select “FULL” detail.
Now that we have base line PAK’s installed lets set up the network.
Ensure you have started the que manager first.

Start the Que manager:-
$ START/QUEUE/MANAGER/NEW

You can check the Que manager via :-
$ SHOW QUEUE/MANAGER
Queue manager SYS$QUEUE_MANAGER, running, on IA64::

Use the following command to set up your network and network interfaces:-
$ @sys$startup:tcpip$startup

Start the que manager:-
$ START/QUEUE/MANAGER/NEW
You can check the cue manager via :-
$ SHOW QUEUE/MANAGER
Queue manager SYS$QUEUE_MANAGER, running, on IA64::

* To edit an existing TCP/Ip config and set DHCP client to start on boot run the TCP config again and select option 2.
$ @SYS$MANAGER:TCPIP$CONFIG

* Since HP have done a lot of work on the TCP/Ip stack you can use “ifconfig -a” to see all interfaces. Or you can use the traditiona l”SHOW INTERFACE” under the TCPIP menu.

$ ifconfig -a

IE0: flags=c63<UP,BROADCAST,NOTRAILERS,RUNNING,MULTICAST,SIMPLEX>
inet 192.168.0.xxx netmask ffffff00 broadcast 192.168.0.255 ipmtu 1500

LO0: flags=100c89<UP,LOOPBACK,NOARP,MULTICAST,SIMPLEX,NOCHECKSUM>
inet 127.0.0.1 netmask ff000000 ipmtu 4096

TN0: flags=80<NOARP>

TN1: flags=80<NOARP>

or :-

$ tcpip
TCPIP> SHOW INTERFACE

Interface   IP_Addr         Network mask          Receive          Send     MTU

IE0        192.168.0.44    255.255.255.0             523            16    1500
LO0        127.0.0.1       255.0.0.0                   4             4    4096

TCPIP> exit

Now that we have the network up , ssh into the openVMS box. (ensure you started SSH in the tcp services menu) .
You will need to set  terminal type on first log in:-
$ SET TERM/VT100

Now create a file to copy the rest of the PAK’s into :-
$ edit VMS_PAKS.COM
Copy all the contents of the PAK file into this file.
save the file.

Run the DCL :-
@VMS_PAKS.COM

@SYS$UPDATE:VMSLICENSE
