Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Have you tried the IBM support site ?
There’s a PTF about this problem :

http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=0&dc=DB550&q1=SRCA6005010&uid=nas28aa460e1277606dd86256eab003ca5f6&loc=en_US&cs=UTF-8〈=all

===================================================

The above APAR doesn’t <i>seem</i> appropriate. The related PTF is part of the base V5R3.0 LIC and has no cross-referenced V5R3.5 PTF. Further, the MF32673 PTF appears to be the <i>source</i> of the SRCA6005010 reported in the question. From the PTF “CORRECTION” description — “Also, a SRC A600 5010 will be issued, when the service function fails.”

The PTF apparently will issue the SRC when the underlying failure occurs. Unfortunately, the failing service function isn’t described nor is there any work-around noted in the PTF.

Overall, this seems to be an issue for IBM support unless the system in the question is not current on PTF cume packages.

    Please provide us with a list of DASD units existing on the system, in particular the drive models. V5R4 has requirements beyond V5R3 requirements. You do have at least the 15GB drives, right? Tom

    Hi, its a very minor testing box and has all 4327 disks, so definitely above 15GB. We keep getting these errors as when trying to go ahead " Installation should be done from the main console display" , though it is the only console available. shows the error might be either the system is not detecting the CONSOLE or the LOAD SOURCE

    If twinax make sure you are plugged into port 0 and have subsystem QCTL running. wrkcfgsts *dev DSP01 and just make sure the port address is 00 for device.

    Well it is Twinax thanks , but we dont have any command line to check those, alternatively this is the only console available and yes the Port 0 is set as well as mentioned. We just cant move on to the next step! When we do a B mode IPL it starts to install the OS and then again fails.

    When we do a B mode IPL it starts to install the OS... I'm not clear on what that means. By "install" do you simply mean "start the existing V5R3 OS from the normal location"? Tom
