There was two versions of the 164, the LX and SX if memory serves.
Only one of them was 'complete' enough to run VMS/Tru64, the other

Well, this one calls itself an LX, and in the console, the os_type
parameter claims to support VMS and Unix (and one other which I don't
remember in detail but I do remember thinking, wait, how does that
differ from the "Unix" choice?).  And it does indeed run NetBSD.  So I
suspect the LX is the `complete' one.
Yes, it is.  We actually have one here still running as a logon server:
