I take it that this means you're backing up a MicroVAX II via DECnet to VMS
running under SIMH?  Or that you simply have copies of everything on a SIMH
virtual disk?  I'm asking as the RD53's are hidiously unreliable.  Never
count on it powering back up after you power it down.

I would have a copy of a nice VAX/VMS v4.x system disk if I'd had everything
setup and done a backup the first time I powered it up.  So I'm speaking
from personal experience. :-(
