Thank you. Now for the 2000 mile reach. The techs at the cyber center will same something like, FSP? What is that? I don't see no reset switch? Well if the PTF's don't fix the memory problems, I can get IBM out there to replace the memory and reset my FSP.

(or I just have a cable plugged from the HMC1 port to our switch and try the default IP. If that works, I should be able to assign a routable IP address and default gateway.)

Oh the joys of hands off maintenance.

The easiest way to fix this is (On Power 5 machines) is to remove the
FSP, switch the reset switch, replug the FSP, and everything should be
back to MDC. In MDC, all hardware belongs to the single LPAR. If the
LPAR is configured for LAN console, everything should be up and
running in no time.

I had to do this a few times, because IBM shipped us 5 systems that
proudly displayed "HMC=0" right after unpacking, and weren't in MDC
