Jack,

All I know for sure is that we canceled maintenance on both systems
(production and development). The BP was to pull both machines but just use
the dev machine for spare parts.

I did a couple of Save 21s before we closed the doors; gave one to the owner
and left the other one for the BP. I don't blame him for doing another one,
just the steps he used to replace the drive. Up until he had to scavenge
dev for the disk drive, it was a mirror copy of prod.

Jerry, do you keep software/hardware maintenance on this machine. When was
the last 21 save done on it?? I guess I am under the impression that he
wanted to do a 21 to save himself in case he ran into any issues and then
would be forced to reload the machine. What would of happened if he did hit
a bump in the road, what would have been expected of him at that point.

Well, the BP'll have to eat that bill. The reason my boss and I still
have access is to check on the machine and run any reports are
whatever that the owner needs for taxes and such. When I finally
logged in myself at the end of February, I noticed the drive went
south back in November! It's a simple matter of checking the qsysmsg
queue, which I had set up years ago. Plus I told 'em, before they
picked the machine up, that it needed a new cache battery (well, the
amber light was on, anyway) and that they ought to turn off the light.

No, I don't know what the owner is paying these guys, but I'm
definitely going to let him know that he shouldn't pay any bill for the
repair.

Thanks for the verification, Jim. Once I found out who was doing the
work, frankly, I didn't have a whole lot of confidence; he used to
write programs here as a consultant before I came on full-time. How
much faith can you have in an IBM i programmer who writes new code in RPG
II?
