I have a running 600 and, from the problem analysis manual for models
6xx (SY44-5955-01), here's what you can do to determine the problem:
How to find the Cause Code:
Select function 13 on the control panel and press the Enter key. The 8
characters of the SRC are displayed. The 4 leftmost characters are the
Depending on the cause code (0001 to 0099) different actions are
performed but most do involve IPL to DST.
So you do need a console.
In my case, I use a PC running client access, connected with a special
serial cable to the first comm port on the 600; it's a little tricky to
configure a serial console. In your case, it may be easier to
borrow/buy a twinax terminal (or twinax emulation card for a PC) if
that's what the 600 was originally configured as.
So how would I reset the adapter?
I looked over the article on IBM per the prior post...but I have no
console so I can not get to DST...also, although I plugged a network
line into the network adapter on back (#2838) I never showed
connectivity on my router and could not get into the box via Operations
Navigator. What can I do? I really don't want a twinax 5250 terminal
laying around just for these rare console needs if I can get by with
something via network. Ideas?
Here is what I found online, hope it helps.
The DASD I/O Adapter could not be configured correctly after
the IPL. I/O Processor microcode was changed to reset the
adapter and retry the configuration
It could be the removal of the disk, it will depend on whether the disk
that was taken from your system was removed using the DST functions or
if it was just removed.
IBM would recommend you run their Published procedure LIC-PIP11 to
diagnose the fault. You can find this and more details of the 5090
error at the following site (just search for 5090)
Assuming the worst, that you've either had the disk incorrectly
removed, used and replaced or that you've had a disk fail in transit
with not disk protection. Then you are going to have to reload OS/400
on your system at home.
But I'd start with LIC-PIP11 and check for sure.
Good luck, Brad.
