Re: Curious about IBM PCI Twinax card for PC experiences.



fixed

Once you have LAN console there is NO advantage to using twinax. One may
think it's a "belt and suspenders" approach in which they can back up each
other. In reality, what often happens, is they start to conflict with
each other.
The newer Power systems absolutely do not support twinax. So what you are
doing is increasing your reliance upon twinax when you should be purging
it out of your environment.
We haven't had a twinax device in well over a decade.
