MJ,

>>I feel there must be some replacment for halon.  What should we be
>>using now halon is not available?  I am having horrors of a small fire in
>>the computer room and the AS400 being turned into a piece of junk
>>from CO2 or water just as surely as if it was burned up.  What 
>>type of extinquisher should we be using?  I don't trust our
>>maintenence department to come up with the correct answer.

We still use Halon.  As far as I know the laws are no NEW installs of
Halon.  We have had ours recharged within the past 2 years.

>>Do any of you have contracts with a company that will provide an
>>alternate site if a disaster happens to your AS400.  Or will bring one to
>>your site?  What companies can I  check into?

We contract with SunGard for our recovery services but IBM also offers
services like these.  We even used SunGard Planning Services to come
in and develop our plan for us.  Took a few months and we now have it
loaded into their software to maintain the plan.

HTH,
John
