OS/400 or iSeries or whatever they call it now needs a license key or it times out after 70 days. I'm not sure about z/OS expiring. But depending on the hardware you'll need license keys to even boot. At least someone was nice enough to make a torrent of V5R2 recently.

If you're not comfortable working with electronics I wouldn't attempt this. These supplies are twice the parts density of a normal PC supply. In other words 10 pounds of shit in a 5 pound box. There are two main boards with numerous daughter boards standing upright. The top output board had many lea...

I used to run one of the second gen javastations as a diskless NetBSD client. It booted from a DEC Alpha running NetBSD and remote X worked. I even had Netscape running with the Tru64 compatibility libs.
It sounds like you're pretty familiar with Z/OS. Have you watched any of the security talks on YouTube? Very eye opening. I'm not that familiar... there's only so much you can do on the emulator. I haven't watched the talks. Is there anything specific you would recommend? But there's this: https://...
RAID levels 1+0 XD I'd love to play with such machine some day before I die... I spent far more time than reasonable fooling around with Hercules once upon a time.

Really interesting machines. Hopefully we get more knowledge on them in the hobbyist space. Took me >3 years to get enough parts (once I figure which parts) then get mine up and running.

Here is a collection of installation notes for getting the OS on these beasts. There is a 70 day timeout if you don't have a license. #### AS/400 SCSI DASD format: IBM formats those drives with 520 or 522 bytes per sector, depending on whether or not a RAID-5 controller is in use (the extra 2 bytes ...

Just checked, this is an optical sensor. Simply placing a screwdriver blade in the slit will let the machine power on with the cover removed. Remove the screwdriver, and it will power off immediately. Works with a small sheet of dark paper too. That was it :D It powers up just fine. I might just di...
