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
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.
