Adam,

Go to this link:

http://www.as400.ibm.com/tstudio/planning/environ/ssenv.htm

Preferably they state 65 to 85 with 76 being optimal.  Humidity around 45%.
However, the guide states an operating temerature range of 50 to 100.  That of
course is for the CPU.  Tape drives have tendency to be less like maybe 60 to
90.  A

This is all opinion but if you have good airflow and the AS/400 is well
ventilated I'm not sure if I'd worry about it....

Is there a command on the /400 that will tell you what the temperature is
inside the box?

My company is shutting down the /400 do to the temperature in the computer
room. With all the lights off and the door shut, the temperature in the
computer room is at 87 and the humidity is 47%. I tried to convince my boss
that it was much cooler inside the box than it is on top of it (that's where
the thermometer is). He feels that the previously stated readings are too
high for the /400 to run at.

I guess I'd just like to prove to him that it's okay for the system to be
running in these conditions. And since I can't work on the /400, I get to
spend my day on the midrange list. Does anyone know the extremes that any
/400 is designed to run at?

Thanks for any help.
