Create/copy an MDM Tape

Creating or Copy an MDM Diagnostics Tape for your MVii

 

I think that all owners of an MVii have the need of an MDM Tape.

For those who don’t know what it is:

– It’s the one you need to low level format an NON DEC MFM Disk to use them in your MVii

– It’s the one you need to run diagnostics

– and much more

 

In 2017 I had some conversation with Jerry and he helped me in getting my 9-Track tape and my RX02 up and running. We had some interesting cheat via mail, and started to talk somehow about DEC MVii based systems. We came to the point, that he has the need for an Up-to-Date version of the DEC MDM TK50 tape. So after all his help it was the right time to reactivate a one of my old VAX  3100, connect an RZ25 and a TZ30, to dump my MDM Tape to disk, to copy them via FTP to my PC to send them to Jerry.

 

The process is not so difficult, but the prerequisites are, as I haven’t used TCP/IP on an VAX before.

 

So here are the needed Steps:

1. Setup a VAX Based System with a big enough Disk Drive and a TZ30
MKA100: Source

MKA500: Destination

DKA300: Local Disk
2. Install VMS/OpenVMS
3. Install TCP/IP
4. Learn how to move between Directories 😉
6. Dump the content of the MDM Source Tape to Disk

 

Mount the Source Tape

Some file couldn't be copied, and I have no clue why, but MDM seams to be working without.

To prevent File System attribute Errors when moving the files to a non VMS system simply backup the content and use the backup file to transfer the files.

$backup [mdm]*.*;* mdmb_v4-8.bck/save/log
