Mike !

Are you saying that you are going to be physically disconnecting it and
reconnecting it ?

Otherwise, with the additional cable you can have it attached to BOTH systems at
the same time. Of course only ONE system can use it at time !

We were doing it at the company I just left (2 months ago - YIPPEE !!!) and it
works great. The ONLY problem was that there was no raised floor, the AS/400's
were across the room from each other (about 15 feet apart max) so we had to buy 
a
LONG cable ($$$$$$) to run around behind the first 530, behind the mux, UPS,
battery rack and to the 500...
