Our AS400 (9406-250 V5R1) has notified us that its 2763 i/o adapter card (raid controller) has failed and should be replaced and also mentions replacing the cache battery pack. I can buy refurbished parts that match the IBM part numbers, but my question is... is it simply a matter of locating and replacing the parts then restarting the system. Or must there also be configuration work included? The disk drives are fine and we intend no change to the current config but I have never configured a raid controller manually. Will this be necessary?

    I don't have a clear answer. However, if you will simply be replacing a failed controller with the same type, there shouldn't be any configuration that needs to be done -- especially for a V5R1 system. (A system under current maintenance might benefit from having its internal hardware data verified and possibly updated.) Tom
