    IF you lost your console as well as the drives you may need to call IBM for service. I assume your system is down currently and you cannot bring it back up?

    Agree w/ Todd.  After you get your hardware issues resolved you are going to need to restore from your back up.  You cannot restore w/o the console and you are going to need to reinitilize the drives to do the restore which also requires a console. 

    Highly unusual to loose that much hardware at once, Are you sure that is all you lost? I would be inclined to look for a root cause (electical issue for example) to make sure that I take precautions against a future incident.

    AS400 is a DR box so there is no service contract. Planning to do a manual IPL/D with dvd. But direct attached operations console wont connect.  Have tried activate line (25,26,& 66) from panel but no go. Any suggestions?
