Reboot AS400 without terminal

Reboot AS400 without terminal

Reboot AS400 without terminal

First off I just want to say I'm an AS/OS 400 novice, we only have it for legacy information so bare with me if I don't understand.

The problem we're having is that at random the server will stop allowing clients to connect using the iSeries emulator. I can see the server in the iSeries navigator and can bring up information on it. Also if you plug in a twinax terminal it will connect but that is where my problem is... I've always been able to fix the client issue by rebooting the server but our only terminal died so I have no way to get into the system now. Is there anyway to reboot the system elsewhere like on the front panel? Does anyone know why it's randomly not allowing emulation clients to connect?

Thanks in advance!

RE: Reboot AS400 without terminal

if you can connect via emulation,, then sign on as system security officer, and do a reboot from there.. Why does this not work???

RE: Reboot AS400 without terminal

I can't connect via emulation, that's where the problem enlies. When you open the connection the status bar says "connection successfully started" but the menus/login doesn't appear.

RE: Reboot AS400 without terminal

setup a new connection,, be a different terminal ID.
See if that lets you in.

RE: Reboot AS400 without terminal

so  you have no one that is connected to the AS400,, so it is not being used by anyone is that correct??

RE: Reboot AS400 without terminal

Yes, that's true. No one is connected to, or using it.

RE: Reboot AS400 without terminal

Well hell,, there is a way to ipl from the front panel, but I cannot remember,, never did it that much.. Anyone have the answer???

RE: Reboot AS400 without terminal

OK had to go look at the front panel,, in your display it should say 01 B N ,, ie ipl, fron the "b" side,, and normal,, we have a white power button,, press it..

RE: Reboot AS400 without terminal

The display says that, 01 B N, I hit the power button and it did nothing. It seems that the IPL is loaded because I can access it from a Twinax terminal. I just can't access it from the emulator. Can I change the IPL to A then back to B? Would that cause any problems?

RE: Reboot AS400 without terminal

Let me clarify... the display on our twinax terminal is broken, but I can kind of see the login screen so it is connecting but it's unuseable.  

RE: Reboot AS400 without terminal

ok,, can you sign on the terminal???   

RE: Reboot AS400 without terminal

I can signon on the terminal but like I said, I cant really see what's on the display so I can't use it.

RE: Reboot AS400 without terminal

then do go power,,, this takes you to the pwer menuy,, option 4, powers off, and then back on,,, look at the screen closely,, to see if it wants another command key to verify powering off, and back on..

RE: Reboot AS400 without terminal

Ok, I was able to use the terminal to reboot it, I just had to remember all the commands. Thanks for your help!
