A colleague of mine has a client with an old as/436 (yep that's right
a 436!) and they are looking at getting a shiny new system.
The problem (well other than doing multiple upgrades in the process)
is that the only drive on the system is the trusty internal QIC tape
Since I'm not really that much of a hardware guy I thought I'd see
if anyone knows if there are external QIC drives that will work with
a new system (most likely entry level and cheapest on the market)
running on v7.2.I suspect they might be SOL on that front.
According to the midrange.com wiki it appears that the 436 can run
v5r1 and if I'm reading that correctly then we can handle most of the
stuff up to that point
then it's finding someone that can restore to v5r4 & save at v5r4 and
load that to the v7.2 box.
Maybe I'm underestimating but I love seeing any company stepping
forward instead of clinging to the past so any assistance would be
