Hello Jessica,
I do not know your OS-version, however e.g. in the "backup and recovery
guide V4.1.0 english" you will find LIC-recovery at chapter 12. Some pages
later (Loading the LIC) there's the menu with "initialize system".
Btw I am scratch installing a 500-box for Y2K-tests (;-)
Good luck for your installation procedure

Betreff: Re: Format DASD?

Marc,

Thank you for the help. I have looked in the backup and recovery guide but
apparently not in the correct place as I looked again tonight online and was
still unable to find reference to this!  Maybe a vacation and a few
espressos and
it will jump out at me. (:

Anyhow, I appreciate your account of the matter and I will give it a try
tomorrow.

Thanks again,

Jessica
