    It's not clear what you are trying to say Mark.

    Is this the VSI VM image that has suddenly stopped working ?

    If so, I would start by checking the time on the host machine is
    set correctly. Assuming you have already done that, are there any
    recent changes you have made ?

    The other possibility is that the licence database is corrupt. Can you
    examine it successfully with the LICENSE LIST command ?

    Simon.

    I think it's more likely he's just letting folks know he doesn't have
    new licenses yet even though he's in the ISV program.

    Thanks Craig. I did not consider that possibility.

    I wonder if that means none of the ISV people have got their licences yet
    or if Mark has been silently dropped by VSI because he no longer qualifies
    (in the opinion of VSI, _NOT_ in my opinion).

    BTW, did VSI manage to sort out licence access for you ?

    Simon.

    No. I applied for the new CL a day or two after the announcement, and
    then, after thinking about it and looking over the requirements, I
    applied for the ambassador program a few days later. No reply of any
    kind to either as yet.

    Someone on the VSI forum has described something about e-mail read
    receipts being required by VSI but it doesn't really make sense and I'm
    not sure it's related to how many people have not heard anything so I
    have asked for clarification:

    Indeed Craig, Simon. My regrets over the terse post. I was just
    heading towards bed, rebooted the system and bang. I have placed an
    issue with the SP and already received a response, although as yet
    remains unresolved.

    I was aware new licenses would be required at 1-MAY-2024 and the system
    has been warning "%SHOW-I-TERMIMM, 10 licenses have terminated or will terminate in 30 days". It's just I imagined 1-MAY-2024 would not mean 11-APR-2024 and rebooted.

    Incidentally, the SP list of packages available to my account went from
    a couple of pages down to *eight* items at the beginning of the week
    (most of which seem irrelevant to my use). I had assumed it was
    something to do with the current CLP shakeup. Was about to chase that
    up ...

    After seeing someone on the VSI Forum was accepted in the Ambassador program even though they were relatively new to OpenVMS, I went ahead and finished mine about 10:30pm CDT last night. At 1:30am I got that friendly email saying I had been accepted!
    So, yes, wheels are turning for sure. Though they still have to get the details in place it seems, at least there is progress.
