We were running token ring 2744 on a 9406-550, V5R4
We used to have multiple boxes, 6 at one point, remote token ring controllers, and a large IBM printer that ran off a token ring connected PC.
Shut it down sometime in 2008,
Remembering all those token ring issues.

A lot later than I thought.

Two token ring adapters come to mind:
I can find this link about the 2744
PCI cards, February 2007 (updated April/May 2007, April 2008) IBM plans that the POWER5/POWER5+ based System i models 520, 525, 550, 570, 595 will be the last to support the following older PCI cards. Users may wish to start moving now to newer technology PCI cards to ease future system technology adoption. These older adapters/controllers include:

I can't remember if the 2744 was a special token ring card that was mainly there to support token ring from the FSIOP/IPCS genre of "pc on a card"

I couldn't find anything quite this clear about the 2724.

Looking at this:

I searched for various models and the 2724.

Just curious if anyone knows when IBM dropped support for token ring at
both the hardware (AS/400, iSeries, ???) level and the OS level.

My son just picked up a contracting gig to replace token ring in Sears
stores with ethernet. I can just imagine he's going to find some small
9402s with an inch of dust.
