Yes, VMS stopped supporting the QNA at some point because, even after 12 ECOs, it could not be made to work properly. If I remember right, the issues showed up mostly in clusters; DECnet didn't mind so much. If all you can get is a QNA, you either need a sufficiently old version of VMS, or an OS that is more forgiving of bogus hardware.
