Scratch Install on a Rack-mounted 720? Published by: Bob Cozzi on 10 Oct 2011 view comments(5)

I'm no systems admin, so I need some help.

I have a new Power i model 720 with v7r1.

The previous SysAdmin started an install and stopped halfway through.

I'm wondering how I can restart a scratch install. This system has only the little green LED no LCD readout so I don't know how to switch the IPL mode or anything like that. He also didn't get far enough to permit the 5250 session or OpsNav to connect (NO HMC)

FYI, he passed away the weekend following his attempt to install this, hence the situation.
