  • 1. Ops Console problem
    We just upgraded an old PC that had Windows 98 to XP service pack 2. Previously ops console (direct connect) was functioning fine. Now that XP is on we cannot get ops console to run. We do not get any specific error, except that the setup wizard cannot detect a connection on the com port. We did upgrade Client Access to V5R3 and the latest service pack. Can someone give me some advice as to what might be causing the problem? Thomas Hauber Builders Hardware Inc.
  • 2. Digital Signature and iSeries?
    Hi together! I'm searching informations about iSeries and digital signature, especially about signing documents like pdf's or fax. One software I found is Direct Fax from Toolmaker for creating digitally signed fax output. Someone know's a similair software for pdf's? We use infoprint to create our pdf's, so we have to modify the pdf's after creation. cu Martin

  • 4. Size of parameters in CLLE?
    Whats the maximum size a numeric parameter can be in CLLE? I know that previously the maximum numeric parameter size was 15,5. We are trying to pass a 11,0 parameter, but if the program is submitted we'll obviously get a decimal data error. But only when we submit the program. Does CLLE allow larger numeric parameters to be passed than 15,5? Note, we don't really want to dived the 11,0 parameter by 10 (or 100 or 1000) to allow the program to be submitted. TIA John

lpar processor addition question

Postby z » Fri, 14 May 2004 00:45:30 GMT

hi, easy question for someone (i hope)...

we've done several hardware upgrades to our 820 and lpar's for memory and
other resources and the additional hardware is just tagged as new resources
and available to be deployed across our lpar's.

my question is, on the addition of a 2nd processor, is the new processor
treated the same way as memory?  ie, its just an available resource in the
"bucket" that can be assigned to the lpar's?  or does a processor upgrade
require you to have to redo your lpar set up?

thanks, jim

Hi Jim

It's just like the memory.....it comes available as "not assignes
hardware"...You can use it rigth away..IF youre MIN/MAX values are set right
in the past. Otherwise you have to set them right ...and IPL the primary.

Good luck

2.LPAR Virtual LAN Routing Question


I hope that somebody can help with this problem! We have an iSeries 270
which is LPAR'd and has two partitions. P0, P1

P0 has a physical network card with the address It also has a
virtual network card with the address

P1 has a virtual network card with the address

So, is it possible for the primary partition to route between the

If so, what has to be considered in order to separate the 2 companies

4.question about multi core processors

   I'm thinking of doing a processor upgrade in the next couple of 
months.  Currently I have a single core Athlon BE running at about 2.6 
GHz.  I've got a fairly new (~ 5 months old) motherboard that is AM2+.

   I do a lot of video compression into h.264/mpeg4 using Nero Recode, 
and occasionally WinAVI Video Converter.

   I read recently that if you are encoding a single file, multi cores 
don't help you out at all.  Is this true?  Supposedly, you only get a 
benefit if you are encoding multiple files, because then the other cores 
can each tackle one of the files.

   I had always assumed that if you have 4 cores, each core would 
somehow do 1/4 of the work encoding a single file, and the computer 
would "distribute" the processing chore between the cores, allowing you 
to get done maybe 3 times as fast as a single core computer would. 
However, I've been told that is not the case.

   If this is true, then the multiple core upgrade would only very 
occasionally help me out at all, and perhaps I should just stick with my 
current single core.

   Anyone have further information on this?  Thanks!

5.Newbie questions about matched pairs of processors

I have some basic questions about matched pairs of Intel processors.

1.  Is it enough that the stepping numbers (sSpec numbers) are 
the same,  or do you need something more?

2.  Can you tell just by looking at two chips if they are a matched

3.  I always hear about matched pairs of Xeon and Pentium III's,  but
not so much about other chips.  Does anyone care about matched pairs of
Celeron 1.4 Ghz chips? Are there dual processor motherboards that take
those chips?
