VAX Diagnostics, Disk Formatters?

» close window

The Question is:

I am trying to find out how to format a RA-60 Disk with a
MicroVAX II. We had a disk crash and ordered a couple of refurbished disks. The
 new disks are not formatted. We tried to use the Diag Tape (TK-50) MDM, but it
 will not let us into the formatter menu. It gives a message that we need to
 purchase a
MicroVAX II Maintenance Kit. I would appreciate any help.

The Answer is :

  The MDM maintenance kit contains the formatter.  For self-maintenance
  services, tools, spares, and diagnostics, please check with the Compaq
  Assisted Services organization; referenced in the OpenVMS FAQ.
