Fujitsu 9600 VS Backup on Serial to USB device possible?

Fujitsu 9600 VS Backup on Serial to USB device possible?

Fujitsu 9600 VS Backup on Serial to USB device possible?

Does anyone know if there is anything out there that will allow someone to attach a serial to usb adapter to a Fujitsu 9600 VS to save a copy of the configuration to? There is another institution in our state DRC that has a failing hard drive on a 9600 VS and being able to save the config so that it could be printed or even just accessed so that when we go to install a new Avaya 450 we could be ahead of the game with knowing where everything is punched down! Also would be great in case we did manage to find a HD to throw in this thing to keep it going for awhile longer! Just wondering!

RE: Fujitsu 9600 VS Backup on Serial to USB device possible?

The only options are:
1. Use the on-board floppy drives, with FACOM formatted floppy disks.
2. if you have multiple hard-drives, you can install the hardware to use a removable hard-drive. Every time you remove install the removable hard-drive, the system copies from the active drive to the newly installed drive, giving you a fresh backup drive.

We've asked the same question about hard-drive backup of Altura, the company that supports the F9600 platform, and were told that there is no option for backing up to a USB flash-drive. If only life were that simple.
