RE: UPS Signal Cable Problems with i5



fixed

My hunch is that they were referring to the gender bender for $90.

Where can you get the cable for $90?  I was just quoted over $200 from
IBM direct.

Not only that, the price IBM is charging for this #1827 "Serial-UPS
Conversion Cable" is nothing short of obscene.  It's CDN$150, and I
think
around US$90.  THEY made the change to the UPS serial port, THEY should
supply a free cable on all orders for the new 5xx boxes.  And
considering
what they're charging for it, it's appalling that there is still no PTF
available (yet) to make it work properly.

UPS Signal Cable Problems with i5






Hi,

The UPS signal cable port on the back of the system, which for years has
been labeled as J14 has always been a female port.  It turns out that on
the 520 and 570 (I haven't seen a 550 yet) it is obviously labeled T1
and
now it's male!

Come on, give me a break.  So when you shell out for your new i5, you
also
have to purchase a gender bender (obviously not included) to change your
signal cable port from male to female.

Was anyone thinking?
