Customer lost a system running at 99.9% utilization (V5R2) and a full
system reload was required.

No one on staff knows anything about this machine. No passwords, no
backup, nothing. Just wishes and prayers.

Since its a mothballed system used only for inquiry into old history no
value was placed on the machine until it crashed.

We got the system reloaded but they us Client Access with SSL enabled and
the SSL cert (probably self signed) is not in sync and so CA won't load.

To get them going we switched to telnet (port 23) as no one could think of
why they needed SSL anyway. So now the system in usable.

We tried getting the *ADMIN instance of the *HTTP server going so we could
run the DCM on port :2100 but it won't start because the Java LPP is
missing. OK. I can handle that did they get the SSL cert in
there in the first place?

Could they have created it on a previous version of iOS that did not
require Java?

Any ideas?
