More follow up:
BTW, this system is at V5R2.
I followed your instructions to the tee: 25>26>65?>21>11
When I go to 21 and press enter, it responds FF
I then go to 11 and press enter and get D100 8065.
I thought I was looking for a A600 500x code?
Surely there is a way to tell this system to use a twinax console......
Does the D100 8065 indicate its looking for an Ops console? Id try to
config that, but I don't have an ops console cable, nor do I have a PC with
a serial port.

Here is one for you old hardware guys:indicate what type of console is configured.
I have a model 270 DSD. I have no idea what kind of console it was
originally configure for. I would like to use it with a twinax console.
The system booted fine, I could connect via IP.
I can see my twinax controller, and it goes ACTIVE, but does not
recognize any devices I hook up to it, even though autocfg is turned
on. When I try to boot into manual mode, I try the 65+21 console
trick, but when I do it, I get an "FF" which is not the response I am
expecting from the operations panel. (the instruction I have says it
should show me a different SRC code and I should be able to go into
edit mode and change it). I cant even get it to show me the SRC code to
What card type/feature code is the Twinax card? 2747/4746 or ??
Now here is the bad part. I read someplace to change the system value
for QIPLTYPE to 2 for Attended IPL with Console Debug, but now I can
not boot the system in either normal or manual mode. I get an A600
5008 error. At least previously I only got this code when I did a
Manual IPL, but I could get the system to come up (with no console) in
Normal mode. I guess changing that system value now prevents a normal
IPL even though the panel says 01 B N.
Anyone have any suggestions, or if you need to know what cards I have
where, let me know.

What Slot is it is?
From the Control Panel try
Set to Manual Mode then
25 Enter should get 00
26 Enter should get 00, If you get FF repeat 25 and 26
11 Enter to display the SRC
repeat as desired/needed
If you decide to change the console type Once the desired type is displayed
do just a 21 to set
