The V5R1M0 Memo to Users details the changes necessary for cabling when you
have an opsconsole - it labels it "Ops Console for LAN connectivity" but it
applies to both LAN Console and normal Ops Console.

Check where you Ops Console is cabled into on your 270.  Is it cabled into
the twinax card or the 2771 internal modem ??  Try swapping where it is
plugged into and then IPLing or forcing DST to see if it comes up.
Furthermore, try plugging it into whichever is in slot 6.

Good references are at:

Check the documentation section and download the instructions for V5R1 -
V5R0 is a little thin on the ground <GRIN>.

Also, make sure you are at SI01097 with the extra fixes downloaded (as
detailed at the above link).

I've gotting it working great attached to an 820 from both NT4 and Win 2K -
also from my laptop running win2k.

Give us yell if you have any (more) problems - and ideally do the PC upgrade
at the same time you do the iSeries upgrade.

Subject: Upgrading Operations Console from V4R5 to V5R0

I am going to upgrade my AS/400 270 “Test” machine OS from V4R5 to V5R0
today <I think>.
In preparation the IBM instructions said that I should upgrade my Operations
Console to V5R0 before doing starting the upgrade.

But of course all of us who have Operations Console how “easy” it is to
configure <g>
And I can’t get it to connect… just sits there saying “Connecting
Console” for as long as it wants.

I had Operations Console working on my V4R5 w/ no problems….and all I did
was update it to V5R0.
Anyone had any similar experience(s) or fixes.

The EZ-Setup said it cannot find my com port or has no connection to the
system even though
I haven’t changed anything at all to the system or my pc other than
upgrading the Operations Console.
