I'd avoid making the duration an issue at all:

1. Ensure front panel is set to "B N".  It should be there already.
2. When the time comes, do a PWRDWNSYS *IMMED RESTART(*NO) or GO POWER
option 3.
3. When the UPS work is done, press the white power button.
4. After a few minutes, go sign on.

Subject: Power up question

Our UPS is being replaced Saturday.  I have to shut down the iSeries
during the switchover.

I haven't done this in umpteen years and have a question as to if I can
do the following:

1) Set the IPL date/time to, say, 20 minutes after I shut it down.
2) After it has powered off, unplug it.
3) After power is restored, plug it back in.

If the IPL date/time has passed, will it still power up?  Or do I have
to do it manually with buttons?  Gosh, it's been so long I will have to
look up how to do this.


PS, This time I'm having them wire in a maintenenace bypass so if/when I
ever have to replace the UPS again, I won't have to worry about shut
