Using this guide I was able to install OpenVMS 7.3 for VAX on simh on Ubuntu 16.04.

This is a copy-paste of my terminal for future reference. This is not one of my usual articles, a guide with comprehensive information an background. Just a log of my terminal.

    The Help Message utility (MSGHLP) provides online explanations
    and user actions for OpenVMS messages in place of the hardcopy
    OpenVMS System Messages and Recovery Procedures Reference Manual,
    which is now separately orderable.

    The MSGHLP database file, MSGHLP$LIBRARY.MSGHLP$DATA,
    consumes approximately 10400 blocks and will be
    placed by default on your system disk in SYS$COMMON:[SYSHLP]
    unless you specify an alternate device when prompted.

* Do you want to install the MSGHLP database? (Y/N) y

    You can install this database on your system disk in SYS$COMMON:[SYSHLP]
    or on an alternate device.  If you specify an alternate device, but no
    directory, MSGHLP$LIBRARY.MSGHLP$DATA is placed in [HELP_MESSAGE].  When
    prompted, take the default of the system disk or specify an alternate

    The OpenVMS Management Station is a client-server application that
    provides OpenVMS system management capabilities through a client
    application on a personal computer (PC) running Microsoft Windows.

    The server application runs on OpenVMS systems and is automatically
    installed as part of the OpenVMS operating system.

    This option provides the files used to install the PC client software.
    If you want to use the OpenVMS Management Station, you must install
    these optional files on at least one OpenVMS system and then use one or
    both of them to install the PC client on one or more PCs.  There are two
    files:  TNT030_I.EXE for Intel systems (Windows 95 and Windows NT), and
    TNT030_A.EXE for Alpha Windows NT systems.

    The OpenVMS Management Station optional files consume approximately 20000
    blocks and will be placed on your system disk in SYS$COMMON:[TNT.CLIENT].

* Do you want to install the optional OpenVMS Management Station files? (Y/N) n

    You can select DECwindows now, or you can use the DECW$TAILOR utility
    to provide or remove DECwindows support after the installation.

    Some media, TK50s in particular, can be very slow when tailoring on files.
    You might want to select DECwindows now and tailor off unwanted files later.

    NOTE: This kit does NOT contain full DECwindows.
          To obtain full DECwindows, you must also install the separate
          layered product, DECwindows Motif for OpenVMS VAX.
          V1.2-3 is the minimum version of DECwindows Motif for OpenVMS VAX
          that can be used with OpenVMS VAX V7.3.

    The DECwindows components provided in this kit requires approximately
    34400 blocks, broken down as follows:

        o DECwindows base support                    -   4400 blocks
        o DECwindows workstation support             -  23800 blocks
          -  75 dots per inch video fonts            -    (included)
          - 100 dots per inch video fonts (optional) -   6200 blocks

    You must select the DECwindows base support option if
        - you plan to run DECwindows software, or
        - you are installing this kit on
            * a workstation or
            * an OpenVMS Cluster that contains workstations, or
        - you want to provide font files for Xterminals.

    If you are installing this kit on a system that includes Xterminals
    and you do NOT select DECwindows base support, then you will have to use
    the DECW$TAILOR utility to provide font files.

* Do you want the DECwindows base support? (Y/N) y

    Space remaining:  2203591 blocks


    You must select the DECwindows workstation support option if
        - you are installing this kit on
            * a workstation or
            * an OpenVMS Cluster that contains workstations, or
        - you want to provide font files for Xterminals.

    If you are installing this kit on a system that includes Xterminals
    and you do NOT select DECwindows workstation support, then you will have
    to use the DECW$TAILOR utility to provide font files.

* Do you want to install DECwindows workstation support? (Y/N) y

    Space remaining:  2179791 blocks


    DECwindows workstation support includes the 75 dots per inch video fonts.

    All DECwindows applications run with 75 dots per inch video fonts.
    By default, most systems startup with 75 dots per inch video fonts.
    Certain applications can take advantage of 100 dots per inch video fonts.

    For the VAXstation 4000 series machines, 100 dots per inch video fonts
    are used by default.  If you decide not to install 100 dots per inch
    video fonts, you must edit SYS$MANAGER:DECW$PRIVATE_SERVER_SETUP.COM
    to force 75 dots per inch video fonts to be the default.  Otherwise,
    certain applications may not space text properly.

    For instructions on how to configure your system with both 75 and 100
    dots per inch video fonts, see the installation guide or look at the
    template command procedure SYS$MANAGER:DECW$PRIVATE_SERVER_SETUP.TEMPLATE.

* Do you want 100 dots per inch video fonts installed? (Y/N) y

    Beginning with OpenVMS V7.1, the DECnet-Plus kit is provided with
    the OpenVMS operating system kit.  Compaq strongly recommends that
    DECnet users install DECnet-Plus.  DECnet Phase IV applications are
    supported by DECnet-Plus.

    DECnet Phase IV is also provided as an option.  Support for DECnet
    Phase IV is available through a Prior Version Support Contract.

    If you install DECnet-Plus and TCP/IP you can run DECnet
    applications over a TCP/IP network.  Please see the OpenVMS
    Management Guide for information on running DECnet over TCI/IP.

    If you plan to install DECnet Phase IV do NOT select DECnet-Plus.

* Do you want to install DECnet-Plus? (Y/N) y

    Space remaining on system disk:  2093591 blocks

    DECnet Phase IV will not be installed.


    The following options will be provided:

    In an OpenVMS Cluster, you can run multiple systems sharing all files
    except PAGEFILE.SYS, SWAPFILE.SYS, SYSDUMP.DMP, and VAXVMSSYS.PAR.

    Cluster configuration cannot be done at this time because no network
    is present.  In order to configure a cluster you must FIRST do one
    or both of the following:

        o Install DECnet-Plus (or DECnet Phase IV), or
        o Execute SYS$STARTUP:LAN$STARTUP.COM by removing the
          comment delimiter ("!") from the line

                $! @SYS$STARTUP:LAN$STARTUP

          in SYS$MANAGER:SYSTARTUP_VMS.COM.

    Then configure the cluster by executing the following command:

                @ @SYS$MANAGER:CLUSTER_CONFIG

    See the OpenVMS System Manager's Manual: Essentials for more information.

Hostname:

* Please enter the SCSNODE name: REMY1

Explanation taken from the article linked above:

For the SCSNODE name - the hostname, if you will - you'll have to remember to use only 6 characters or less. The SCSSYSTEMID is a bit more complex. It's calculated through the formula X * 1024 + Y, where X is the DECnet area number, and Y the DECnet node number in that area.

Since we're starting from scratch, we can use X=1; for the node numbers, it makes sense to think this through properly. Useful tip: use the last octet of the IP address you want to assign to this machine! Since I want to give IPs 10.20.1.131 and 10.20.1.132 to the nodes, I'll give WHISKY Y=131, COGNAC Y=132. This leaves us with a SCSSYSTEMID of 1155 for WHISKY, and DECnet code 1.131. COGNAC will get 1156 as SCSSYSTEMID and DECnet code 1.132.

If you want machines to communicate with others over DECnet, you really, really should communicate with those people on how to decide on DECnet addresses. If you would want to join my cluster, you'll HAVE to use DECnet area 1, and you'll HAVE to use a DECnet node number that's not 131 or 132.

Why? Because DECnet overwrites your MAC address, based on the DECnet address. The 16-bit decimal address is converted to a hexadecimal number and appended to the address AA:00:04:00 in byte-swapped order, with the least significant byte first. For example, DECnet address 12.75 becomes 12363 (base 10), which equals 304B (base 16). After this byte-swapped address is appended to the standard DECnet MAC address prefix, the resulting address is AA:00:04:00:4B:30 (thanks to Cisco for that brief explanation). And, in the end, we really don't want to have two identical MAC addresses on the same network, do we?

* Please enter the SCSSYSTEMID:  1155

    After the installation finishes, you might want to do one or more of the
    following tasks:

    o DECOMPRESS THE SYSTEM LIBRARIES - To save space, many of the system
      libraries are shipped in a data-compressed format.  If you have
      enough disk space, you can decompress the libraries for faster access.
      To data expand the libraries, type:

        $ @SYS$UPDATE:LIBDECOMP.COM

      If you do not decompress these libraries, you will experience
      slower response to the HELP and LINK commands.

    o BUILD A STANDALONE BACKUP KIT - You can build a standalone backup kit
      using the procedure described in the "Backup Procedures" chapter of
      tye upgrade and installation supplement provided for your VAX computer.

    o TAILOR THE SYSTEM DISK - You might want to review the files provided or
      not provided during this installation.  If you find there are files
      you want to remove from the system disk (TAILOR OFF) or files you want
      to add (TAILOR ON), use the following utilities to perform the
      desired tailoring.

          OpenVMS tailoring:          $ RUN SYS$UPDATE:VMSTAILOR

          DECwindows tailoring:       $ RUN SYS$UPDATE:DECW$TAILOR

      NOTE:  The tailor procedure cannot be used to TAILOR ON or TAILOR OFF

    Configuring all devices on the system ...

    If you have Product Authorization Keys (PAKs) to register, you can
    register them now.

No, later on we can copy paste the entire text file from HP in the terminal instead of manually typing over everything:

* Do you want to register any Product Authorization Keys? (Y/N): n

********************************************************************************

    After the system has rebooted you must register any Product
    Authorization Keys (PAKs) that you have received with this kit.
    You can register these PAKs by executing the following procedure:

        $ @SYS$UPDATE:VMSLICENSE

    See the OpenVMS License Management Utility Manual for any additional
    information you need.

    Default Time Differential Factor is 1:00.


    The Time Differential Factor (TDF) is the difference between your
    system time and Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).  UTC is similar
    in most repects to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).

    The TDF is expressed as hours and minutes, and should be entered
    in the hh:mm format.  TDFs for the Americas will be negative
    (-3:00, -4:00, etc.); TDFs for Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia
    will be positive (1:00, 2:00, etc.).


Enter the Time Differential Factor [1:00]:

    NEW SYSTEM TIME DIFFERENTIAL FACTOR = 1:00.

Is this correct? [Y]: y




    DECnet-Plus will now be installed.

    Media containing the DECnet-Plus kit must be available.

    If you are installing OpenVMS from an Infoserver (DAD1)
    or local CD-ROM, there is a DECnet-Plus kit on the CD-ROM.

    If you are installing from a cartridge tape (TK50) or
    from an open reel tape, you should have a DECnet-Plus kit
    on cartidge tape or open reel tape.

    An appropriate DECnet-Plus kit may also be available on
    the Consolidated Distribution CD-ROM, or you may have a
    separate DECnet-Plus kit.

    NOTE: You may choose any available media for the
    DECnet-Plus kit.  It is NOT NECESSARY to use the same
    type of media that contained the OpenVMS kit.

    If you do not have a DECnet-Plus kit available, or if you
    have decided NOT to install/upgrade DECnet-Plus, you can
    bypass the DECnet-Plus installation by entering "EXIT"
    for the "name of drive holding the DECnet-Plus kit".

Install disk is DUA2

* Enter name of drive holding the DECnet-Plus kit: dua2
* Is DUA2: ready to be mounted? [N] y
