RE: Need advice on Operations Console vs. LAN Console



fixed

I had to do it once... it involved using the console to reset it. The docs
weren't that great. But I did figure it out. In 3 hours.. lol! then
stupid me messed it up again and I reset it the 2nd time in 5 minutes. ;)

Funny you should mention #1 today, is there a relatively painless way to
reset the access password for a specific LAN console device(PC)?

Never been overly happy with OPS Console. It either works or problematic
( very ). On the other hand I'm Very Happy with LAN Console. Just
remember a few things...

#1 Either keep the passwords very simple and/or document them.
#2 On setup the i5 and PC share some security data that ties THAT PC to
the defined name on the i5. If you delete the setup on the PC, you can't
just re-create it and have it work. Which leads to #3
#3 Always have more than 1 console defined...
#4 The first console setup needs to be on the same IP subnet ( no router
between the PC and i5 )

I am spec'ing a 520 POWER Entry system, I am trying to decide upon the
relative merits of the Opeations Console vs. a LAN Console.

Operations Console: requires the PCIe 2-Line WAN w/modem feature. The
only
use I would have for this feature is the Ops Console, so if LAN Console
is
viable, I don't think I will need this feature. I am familiar with using
Ops
Console on my iSeries model 270. It has performed flawlessly the few
times I
have used it. This is the feature that uses the Operations Console
program
in iSeries Access for Windows.

LAN Console: as far as I can tell, this will run on the Dual Port 1Gb
Ethernet adapter, which is speced into the system.

Not up for discussion: twinax, concerns about using Windows program to
manage i, etc.

I simply need pros/cons of LAN Console, as I am completely unfamiliar
with
that option. Any pointers to references are appreciated.

Thank you,
Craig Pelkie
