• Subject: Help w/ AS/400 power crash

One of our overseas AS/400s suffered a power-outage crash.  It was hooked up
to the UPS, but the UPS was apparently switched to "bypass" mode.  Someone's
head may roll for this.  (Not my decision.)

Once it was brought back up, several of our device descriptions were lost, and
auto-config had to be turned on briefly to get everything back up in a pinch.

It raises the question for me:  What else is damaged out there?  The power
outage occurred 5 days ago, and we've been running fine (as far as I know).
What should I be looking for?  For some reason, the *SYSOPR message queue was
somehow cleared several hours ago, so I don't know how to look for problems
that would have been identified in there.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
