    Can I connect these 2 old HDD to new AS400,...

    I don't know if any drives from a 150 are also supported by a model 800. No matter what, we'd need to know what those drives are as well as what drive controllers are in the model 800.

    ...in order to recover libraryfiles inside?

    No. You cannot make any drives active without formatting them first. You need to restore from backups. It's possible that the drives can be accepted in the 800, but all the data will be gone.

    (The only drive activation that doesn't require formatting is when the drives are configured as an iASP.)

    I'm sure it's possible, but I've never heard of anyone doing it. I'd imagine that IBM could. You might be able to use a different 150 with similar hardware configuration. If you replaced the system's drives with yours, it might IPL far enough to pull data somehow. -- Tom

    If you can use DST and get drive access, why do you say that the 9401 "failed to start"? Also, what option are you using to save-to-tape? -- Tom

    With good access to DST, you should be able to review all error logs and isolate any failing component. The hardware service manager service tool should know everything that is needed. And then a parts dealer should be able to supply a replacement. Is there a reason that can't be done? The tapes that you created will only allow you migrate to replacement drives in your system. They can't be used to restore data to a different system. You'll need data backup tapes for that. -- Tom
