Upgrading OpenVMS VAX?

» close window

The Question is:

2 questions...
1.  I am currently running VMS V5.5-2h4 and have been told that I need to
 upgrade to
V7.2-1.  Will the upgrade procedure completely initialize my system disk?
2.  The system is a VAX 4200 and has 48.00Mb of physical memory.  What is the
 maximum memory that I can add and/or upgrade to?
Thank you...

The Answer is :

  Please read the provided documentation for OpenVMS upgrades, and please
  see the OpenVMS FAQ for the various available upgrade paths.
  There is no V7.2-1 release for OpenVMS VAX, the most recent OpenVMS
  VAX release is V7.2 and (as of this writing) the next OpenVMS VAX
  release immediately following V7.2 is expected to be the V7.3 release.
  The system physical memory limit for the VAX 4000 model 200 series is
  64 megabytes (MB).
