Thanks Jonathan! This got me pointed in the right direction.
I was eventually able to login, view the installed software, the user
accounts, and perform a normal shutdown. Here are a few details for
anyone who is interested:
I tried user/pass = QSECOFR/QSECOFR, but my console terminal locked
(turned dim). I suppose too many wrong guesses previously, so I got
locked out. So, on the front panel I selected 03 = "start IPL", and
the machine rebooted. I guess this is like hitting the reset button
on a PC. This time at the initial screen, rather than selecting
option 1 = "Perform an IPL", I selected option 3 = "Use Dedicated
Service Tools (DST)". In DST, was able to reset passwords to factory
defaults and then after an IPL, user/pass = QSECOFR/QSECOFR worked.
The machine does have HTTP server software and an ethernet card, so
maybe I'll try to get it to serve up a web page or two. Nothing else
looks familiar to me right now. I don't know what version of the OS
it's running. I'll have to figure than out next. I'm heading over
to amazon.com now and see if there are some good AS/400 sysadmin books
available. Certainly nothing even remotely UNIX-like about this OS,
so I've got some reading to do. Thanks again for the help!
