That's a normal IPL step. Give it time. Cursor should eventually move to top left (indicates connection with workstation controller) before it starts displaying stuff. ...Neil "Brad McDaniel" <email@example.com> Sent by: firstname.lastname@example.org 2001/01/22 01:20 Please respond to MIDRANGE-L To: <MMReinkem@aol.com> cc: <email@example.com> Subject: Re: AS/400 9404 Model E10 Well, don't ask me what happened, but this time when I set the IPL to B (as another replier advised), and then powered on, this time it started doing something. The latest display says :11-2 C600 4007, and the processor active light is on. Does this sound right? The monitor/terminal/console still doesn't display anything but a cursor in the upper right.

Decision Data's are a lot easier to work with. Mess around with that and make sure it's set up to be the console or display 1 at switch setting 0 port 0. Also, are you absolutely positive that they left the Operating system on it? The UPS is a device that supplies power to the system for a few extra minutes in order to let it go down smoothly if the power is interrupted. It's like a short-lived backup battery. > >If the console looks like it's set up correctly, then you might try to IPL the system again. Make sure it is in the "normal" position and then press the delay power button. If this doesn't work, you can always try a manual IPL but it's going to take anywhere from 45mins to over an hour and it means walking through multiple steps. I'll gladly help you with it, but don't know if you want to mess with that yet or not. At least I'm more than familiar with that dept! I envy you your own machine. You'll learn more that way than any other way possible. > >Michele +--- | This is the Midrange System Mailing List! | To submit a new message, send your mail to MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com. | To subscribe to this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-SUB@midrange.com. | To unsubscribe from this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-UNSUB@midrange.com. | Questions should be directed to the list owner/operator: firstname.lastname@example.org +---
