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

Can you reach the Console. We have HMC and if you can reach that you can check what is going on with your iSeries.

    What does your DR plan say to do? Do you know how to work with the HMC?

    If you don't have an HMC, here are 2 other approaches to remote connection to the AS400 console: 1) LAN console on a separate ethernet port 2) OPS console through serial port to a local PC, then MSTSC connection through the LAN to that PC. We have used both methods with older boxes that didn't have HMCs.

    As I understand it when the WAN goes down, your local LAN should still be up and running so the iSeries machine will not know that anything is wrong. Once your WAN is restored the connections should be just fine unless the LAN goes down as well then you need to get at the console which is a direct attached device like OPS Console, LAN Console or the HMC to restart the Ethernet connections. You will need to access the consoles directly if you do not have LAN access so supporting the machine remotely will not be an option until the LAN/WAN is restored. Lovemyi
