We had a power failure yesterday. The old AS400 model 150 stayed up since it's on UPS however the network died on it. Restarting the net didn't work, I lost contact with the machine from the local terminal.
What I'm supposed to do (I've heard) is to re-ipl the machine, whatever that means and from what I understand it can be done from the front panel of the machine.
So now I need to know, how do I do this? It say B N in the display on the machine. Local terminal says 0099 if anything is pressed. Guess the old faithful pulling of the power cord is a bad idea.
Hitting +/- buttons give me these alternatives:
01 Display selected IPL
02 Select IPL
04 Lamp test
The "Select IPL" gives me a wide variety of options, none of which makes sense to me (just two letter combos).
