I need to check drive sizes - IIRC there are a couple of 146GB drives in there somewhere containing the distros/SPLs.
All in very nice condition for the age as you can see from the photos!
I will leave the drives intact, so included will be a full Alpha OpenVMS 8.3 distro, all patches, several versions of the Consolidated Distribution/Software Library, lots of freeware etc.
Monitor, keyboard, etc. not included. Standard RS/232 9-pin D-type console cable is required (I can find one if you're stuck).
This machine used to be SLAVE on HECnet but is now virtualised. I'm downsizing. I obtained it from a local company, where it had sat in a server room from new, since then it's either been in the house or the basement - which is effectively a server room and therefore a fairly nice environment (i.e. it hasn't been at the back of any shed).
If you can't make it to Windermere for pick up I am happy to arrange a meet next time I'm travelling down south (M6/M1) to Dunstable or occasionally to Gateshead/South Shields if you are prepared to wait.
As far as Alpha systems goes this is a nice machine - it can been used in a clustered Alpha/VAX environment, you can use shadowsets and lots of other 'production' features a bit overkill for a desktop system, and it doesn't use too much power.
NOTE: looking at the bottom image this is from a VAXstation 4000/VLC configured as a diskless remote-booting cluster member - with its' system disk served by the AS1000A.
