Here is one for you old hardware guys:indicate what type of console is configured.
I have a model 270 DSD. I have no idea what kind of console it was
originally configure for. I would like to use it with a twinax console.
The system booted fine, I could connect via IP.
I can see my twinax controller, and it goes ACTIVE, but does not
recognize any devices I hook up to it, even though autocfg is turned
on. When I try to boot into manual mode, I try the 65+21 console
trick, but when I do it, I get an "FF" which is not the response I am
expecting from the operations panel. (the instruction I have says it
should show me a different SRC code and I should be able to go into
edit mode and change it). I cant even get it to show me the SRC code to
What card type/feature code is the Twinax card? 2747/4746 or ??
Now here is the bad part. I read someplace to change the system value
for QIPLTYPE to 2 for Attended IPL with Console Debug, but now I can
not boot the system in either normal or manual mode. I get an A600
5008 error. At least previously I only got this code when I did a
Manual IPL, but I could get the system to come up (with no console) in
Normal mode. I guess changing that system value now prevents a normal
IPL even though the panel says 01 B N.
Anyone have any suggestions, or if you need to know what cards I have
where, let me know.
