This page has some commemorative pictures of the successful operation.
The system was accessed using a VT320 serial console.
Login prompt to the system: landtest02.
Since the group server was serving it's own system files, in particular
the /usr directory, we had to binary patch the entire

operate with /usr as /rsu instead. A simple replace on the entire
NetBSD installation worked.
Listing the connected clients.
Disk space was provided by a software RAID on 4 SCSI disks in a tower.
The VAXstation 4000 itself.
VAX only had a BNC network connector. It was connected to the network
using a HUB and a self-made crossed CAT5 cable.
The boot splash screen for the desktops shows who's the server today.
