TODO

  • Some basic cleaning as the system has been standing most likely for a long time.
  • Document all serial and model numbers on devices.DoneDone
  • Image the SCSI disk before attempting a boot.DoneDone
  • Image the SCSI tape before attempting a boot.DoneDone
Failed with 0 bytes and errors. Tape seems new and has no labels so is probably blank.
  • Check the power supply condition, start with the test measuring points.
  • Make a cable for the console terminal.

History

2016-09-29 : Finished documenting serial numbers on devices, reassembled device tray.
2016-09-21 : Pulled out devices tray and PSU. Imagined HDD and read out some info from it. Initial start connected to a linux pc did cause a crackle and bad smell as the drive wound up. Afraid it had let out the magic smoke, but did power off, check everything, and try another powerup. Seems to work fine now, managed to dump out image so hopefully nothing important is broken. Still the HDD bearings sound awful at powerup, so expect this drive wont last. tried to image tape in streamer, but failed. Assume tape is blank, as it has no writing on and streamer seems to work.
2016-09-15 : Started going through the system, documenting it and basic cleaning in preparation for getting it up.
2015: System donated to me from Gandalf.
