But there's at least four considerations that I'd like to throw out to you and help you as far as my thinking. Page 82 ESD , take precautions to avoid damage from static electricity. Subclients associated to a secondary copy must also be associated to its source copy. Please correct the problem and delete the directory manually. The configuration ID passed represents that no configuration ID check is needed. There are pending snap jobs for current subclient which need to be backup copied. A keyboard cord option, which plugged into the keyboard with a modular 4-position telephone plug and into the back of the computer with a 6-pin 2x3 header connected, was also available for increased security and reliability and to eliminate dependence on batteries; the keyboard IR receiver was automatically disabled when the keyboard cord was attached to the computer.
One year after the PC's release, although IBM had sold fewer than , computers,  PC World counted software packages for the PC—more than four times the number available for the Apple Macintosh one year after its release—including applications and almost utilities and languages. Because its prices were based on forecasts of much lower volume—, over five years, which would have made the PC a very successful IBM product—the PC became very profitable; at times the company sold almost that many computers per month.
He stated that the company had increased production three times in one year, and warned of a component shortage if demand continued to increase. Suppliers often found, however, that the prestige of having IBM as a customer led to additional sales elsewhere. Yankee Group also stated that the PC had by "destroyed the market for some older machines" from companies like Vector Graphic, North Star , and Cromemco. By that time, Apple was less welcoming of the rival that inCider stated had a "godlike" reputation.
He warned in a speech before previewing the forthcoming " " Super Bowl commercial: Will Big Blue dominate the entire computer industry? The entire information age? Was George Orwell right about ? IBM's own documentation described the PC as inferior to competitors' less-expensive products, but the company generally did not compete on price; rather, the study found that customers preferred "IBM's hegemony" because of its support.
Most companies with mainframes used their PCs with the larger computers, which likely benefited IBM's mainframe sales and discouraged their purchasing non-IBM hardware. The Entry Systems Division had 10, employees and by itself would have been the world's third-largest computer company behind IBM and DEC,  with more revenue than IBM's minicomputer business despite its much later start.
IBM was the only major company with significant minicomputer and microcomputer businesses,  in part because rivals like DEC and Wang did not adjust to the retail market. The first models were shipped in January Because IBM had no retail experience, the retail chains ComputerLand and Sears Roebuck provided important knowledge of the marketplace. More than Computerland stores already existed, while Sears was in the process of creating a handful of in-store computer centers for sale of the new product.
This guaranteed IBM widespread distribution across the U. Targeting the new PC at the home market, Sears Roebuck sales failed to live up to expectations. This unfavorable outcome revealed that the strategy of targeting the office market was the key to higher sales. All IBM personal computers are software backwards-compatible with each other in general, but not every program will work in every machine. Some programs are time sensitive to a particular speed class.
Older programs will not take advantage of newer higher-resolution and higher-color display standards, while some newer programs require newer display adapters. Note that as the display adapter was an adapter card in all of these IBM models, newer display hardware could easily be, and often was, retrofitted to older models.
It was possible to install both an MDA and a CGA card and use both monitors concurrently  if supported by the application program. Although cassette tape was originally envisioned by IBM as a low-budget storage alternative, the most commonly used medium was the floppy disk.
For models without any drives or storage medium, IBM intended users to connect their own cassette recorder via the 's cassette socket. The cassette tape socket was physically the same DIN plug as the keyboard socket and next to it, but electrically completely different.
A hard disk could not be installed into the 's system unit without changing to a higher-rated power supply although later drives with lower power consumption have been known to work with the standard The simple PC speaker sound hardware was also on board. The processor was an Intel running at 4. Some owners replaced the with an NEC V20 for a slight increase in processing speed and support for real mode instructions.
The V20 gained its speed increase through the use of a hardware multiplier which the lacked. An Intel coprocessor could also be added for hardware floating-point arithmetic.
The ninth bit was used for parity checking of memory. Although the TV-compatible video board, cassette port and Federal Communications Commission Class B certification were all aimed at making it a home computer ,  the original PC proved too expensive for the home market.
It had eight expansion slots but the same processor and clock speed as the PC. The eight expansion slots were the same as the model but were spaced closer together. Although rare, a card designed for the could be wide enough to obstruct the adjacent slot in an XT. The second card PC-M connected to the first and contained kB of memory. The Portable was an XT motherboard, transplanted into a Compaq-style luggable case. Unlike the Compaq Portable, which used a dual-mode monitor and special display card, IBM used a stock CGA board and a composite monitor, which had lower resolution.
It could however, display color if connected to an external monitor or television. The AT was designed to support multitasking; the new SysRq system request key, little noted and often overlooked, is part of this design, as is the itself, the first Intel bit processor with multitasking features i.
While some people blamed IBM's hard disk controller card and others blamed the hard disk manufacturer Computer Memories Inc. Those who re-used the drives mostly found that the th cylinder was bad due to it being used as a landing area. Like modern laptops, it featured power management and the ability to run from batteries. It was the follow-up to the IBM Portable and was model number The concept and the design of the body was made by the German industrial designer Richard Sapper.
It weighed 13 pounds 5. Extension modules, including a small printer and a video output module, could be snapped into place. The machine could also take an internal modem, but there was no room for an internal hard disk. The Model 30 at the bottom end of the lineup was very similar to earlier models; it used an processor and an ISA bus.
The Model 30 was not "IBM compatible" in that it did not have standard 5. It was rarely implemented by any of the other PC-compatible makers. The original PC also has a cassette interface. A monitor and any floppy or hard disk drives are connected to the motherboard through cables connected to graphics adapter and disk controller cards, respectively, installed in expansion slots.
Each expansion slot on the motherboard has a corresponding opening in the back of the computer case through which the card can expose connectors; a blank metal cover plate covers this case opening to prevent dust and debris intrusion and control airflow when no expansion card is installed. For this reason, it was easy to fill the five expansion slots of the PC, or even the eight slots of the XT, even without installing any special hardware.
These became the de facto base for later application-specific integrated circuits ASICs used in compatible products. The PIT provides the This was an option for users who needed extensive floating-point arithmetic, such as users of computer-aided drafting. Although analog controls proved inferior for arcade-style games, they were an asset in certain other genres such as flight simulators. The keyboard that came with the IBM was an extremely reliable and high-quality electronic keyboard originally developed in North Carolina for the Datamaster.
For the IBM PC, a separate keyboard housing was designed with a novel usability feature that allowed users to adjust the keyboard angle for personal comfort. Compared with the keyboards of other small computers at the time, the IBM PC keyboard was far superior and played a significant role in establishing a high-quality impression. For example, the industrial design of the adjustable keyboard, together with the system unit, was recognized with a major design award.
The importance of the keyboard was definitely established when the IBM PCjr flopped, in very large part for having a much different and mediocre Chiclet keyboard that made a poor impression on customers. Oddly enough, the same thing almost happened to the original IBM PC when in early management seriously considered substituting a cheaper and lower quality keyboard.
This mistake was narrowly avoided on the advice of one of the original development engineers. In , Key Tronic introduced a key PC keyboard, albeit not with the now-familiar layout.
In , IBM introduced the key Enhanced Keyboard , which added the separate cursor and numeric key pads, relocated all the function keys and the Ctrl keys, and the Esc key was also relocated to the opposite side of the keyboard.
Another feature of the original keyboard is the relatively loud "click" sound each key made when pressed. Since typewriter users were accustomed to keeping their eyes on the hardcopy they were typing from and had come to rely on the mechanical sound that was made as each character was typed onto the paper to ensure that they had pressed the key hard enough and only once , the PC keyboard used a keyswitch that produced a click and tactile bump intended to provide that same reassurance.
The low-level interface for each key is the same: An integrated microcontroller in the keyboard scans the keyboard and encodes a "scan code" and "release code" for each key as it is pressed and released separately.
Any key can be used as a shift key, and a large number of keys can be held down simultaneously and separately sensed. The controller in the keyboard handles typematic operation, issuing periodic repeat scan codes for a depressed key and then a single release code when the key is finally released.
In addition, the "compatible" vendors sometimes used proprietary keyboard interfaces, preventing the keyboard from being replaced. The AT keyboard uses a bidirectional interface which allows the computer to send commands to the keyboard. An AT keyboard could not be used in an XT, nor the reverse. Third-party keyboard manufacturers provided a switch on some of their keyboards to select either the AT-style or XT-style protocol for the keyboard.
This character set was not suitable for some international applications, and soon a veritable cottage industry emerged providing variants of the original character set in various national variants. In IBM tradition, these variants were called code pages. These codings are now obsolete, having been replaced by more systematic and standardized forms of character coding, such as ISO , Windows and Unicode.
The original character set is known as code page IBM equipped the model with a cassette port for connecting a cassette drive and assumed that home users would purchase the low-end model and save files to cassette tapes as was typical of home computers of the time. However, adoption of the floppy- and monitor-less configuration was low; few if any IBM PCs left the factory without a floppy disk drive installed.
As DOS saw increasing adoption, the incompatibility of DOS programs with PCs that used only cassettes for storage made this configuration even less attractive. Either a one or a zero is represented by a single cycle of a square wave, but the square wave frequencies differ by a factor of two, with ones having the lower frequency. Therefore, the bit periods for zeros and ones also differ by a factor of two, with the unusual effect that a data stream with more zeros than ones will use less tape and time than an equal-length in bits data stream containing more ones than zeros, or equal numbers of each.
Because BASIC was over 50 kB in size, this served a useful function during the first three years of the PC when machines only had 64— kB of memory, but became less important by The same type of physical diskette media could be used for both drives but a disk formatted for double-sided use could not be read on a single-sided drive. After the upgraded 64kk motherboard PCs arrived in early , single-sided drives and the cassette model were discontinued.
IBM's original floppy disk controller card also included an external pin D-shell connector. This allowed users to connect additional external floppy drives by third party vendors, but IBM did not offer their own external floppies until The industry-standard way of setting floppy drive numbers was via setting jumper switches on the drive unit, however IBM chose to instead use a method known as the "cable twist" which had a floppy data cable with a bend in the middle of it that served as a switch for the drive motor control.
This eliminated the need for users to adjust jumpers while installing a floppy drive. During the first year of the IBM PC, it was commonplace for users to install third-party Winchester hard disks which generally connected to the floppy controller and required a patched version of PC-DOS which treated them as a giant floppy disk there was no subdirectory support.
Nonetheless, many users installed hard disks and upgraded power supplies in them. After floppy disks became obsolete in the early s, the letters A and B became unused. Other operating system families e. Unix are not bound to these designations.
Which operating system IBM customers would choose was at first unclear. PC DOS itself did not support cassette tape storage. PC DOS version 1. It contained a library of functions that software could call for basic tasks such as video output, keyboard input, and disk access in addition to interrupt handling, loading the operating system on boot-up, and testing memory and other system components.
It corrected some bugs, but was otherwise unchanged. It added support for detecting ROMs on expansion cards as well as the ability to use k of memory the earlier BIOS revisions had a limit of k.
Unlike the XT, the original PC remained functionally unchanged from until its discontinuation in early and did not get support for key keyboards or 3. It was mainly intended for the business market and so also included a printer port. During , the first third-party video card for the PC appeared when Hercules Computer Technologies released a clone of the MDA that could use bitmap graphics. Although not supported by the BIOS, the Hercules Graphics Adapter became extremely popular for business use due to allowing sharp, high resolution graphics plus text and itself was widely cloned by other manufacturers.
It was extremely expensive, required a special monitor, and was rarely ordered by customers. The serial port is an or a derivative such as the or , mapped to eight consecutive IO addresses and one interrupt request line.
The most typical devices plugged into the serial port were modems and mice. Plotters and serial printers were also among the more commonly used serial peripherals, and there were numerous other more unusual uses such as operating cash registers , factory equipment, and connecting terminals.
IBM made a deal with Japan-based Epson to produce printers for the PC and all IBM-branded printers were manufactured by that company Epson of course also sold printers with their own name. Although third-party cards were available with Centronics ports on them, PC clones quickly copied the IBM printer port and by the late 80s, it had largely displaced the Centronics standard. It praised the "smart" hardware design and stated that its price was not much higher than the 8-bit machines from Apple and others.
The reviewer admitted that the computer "came as a shock. I expected that the giant would stumble by overestimating or underestimating the capabilities the public wants and stubbornly insisting on incompatibility with the rest of the microcomputer world. But IBM didn't stumble at all; instead, the giant jumped leagues in front of the competition The magazine praised the keyboard as "bar none, the best The review also complimented IBM's manuals, which it predicted "will set the standard for all microcomputer documentation in the future.
Not only are they well packaged, well organized, and easy to understand, but they are also complete ". Observing that detailed technical information was available "much earlier The review stated that although the IBM PC cost more than comparably configured Apple II and TRS computers, and the insufficient number of slots for all desirable expansion cards was its most serious weakness, "you get a lot more for your money" and concluded, "In two years or so, I think [it] will be one of the most popular and best-supported IBM should be proud of the people who designed it".
In a special issue dedicated to the IBM PC, BYTE concluded that the PC had succeeded both because of its features like an column screen, open architecture, and high-quality keyboard, and "the failure of other major companies to provide these same fundamental features earlier. In retrospect, it seems IBM stepped into a void that remained, paradoxically, at the center of a crowded market". National Weather Service upper-air observing sites, used to process data as it is returned from the ascending radiosonde , attached to a weather balloon , although they have been slowly phased out.
Factors that have contributed to the PC's longevity are its flexible modular design, its open technical standard making information needed to adapt, modify, and repair it readily available , use of few special nonstandard parts, and rugged high-standard IBM manufacturing, which provided for exceptional long-term reliability and durability. Some of the mechanical aspects of the slot specifications are still used in current PCs. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Within the TS Tape Library and subject to certain restrictions, the Ultrium tape drives use the following cartridge types: The cartridge is designed for applications such as archiving and data retention, and is also suitable for applications that require an audit trail.
The insertion guide 6 is a large, notched area that prevents you from inserting the cartridge incorrectly. You can order tape cartridges with the bar code labels included, or you can order custom labels. To maintain the operating efficiency of the drive, IBM supplies a cleaning cartridge with the first frame of each media type. Table 53 shows the compatability between each generation of diagnostic cartridge and LTO Ultrium tape drive. During service calls, your IBM Service Representative will use the cartridge to ensure that the tape drives run correctly and to specification.
Do not place any type of mark on the white space at either end of the bar code. A mark in this area may prevent the TS Tape Library from reading the label. LTO bar code label specification, there is no need to slow the scanner speed.
If you must manually set the write-protect switch, slide it left or right to the desired position. To avoid damage to your tape cartridges and to ensure the continued high reliability of your IBM LTO Ultrium tape srives, use the following guidelines Double-boxing tape cartridges for shipping Provide proper acclimation and environmental conditions for Ultrium tape cartridges v Before you use a cartridge, let it acclimate to the normal operating environment for 1 hour.
If you see condensation on the cartridge, wait an additional hour. Do not stack more than six cartridges. Degaussing makes the tape unusable. Perform the following steps to determine the cause and recover data: Look for cartridge mishandling. Then, immediately use data recovery procedures to minimize chances of data loss.
If the leader pin in your Ultrium tape cartridge becomes dislodged from its pin-retaining spring clips or detaches from the tape, you must use the IBM Leader Pin Reattachment Kit part number 08L to reposition or reattach it. Do not reattach the pin if you must remove more than 7 meters 23 feet of leader tape.
Ensure that there are no gaps in the seam of the cartridge 4. If gaps exist, do not continue with this procedure and do not use the cartridge. Instead, contact your IBM service representative. Close the cartridge door. Pin supplies see 3 in Figure Leader pins and C-clips. Other methods of reattaching the pin will damage the tape, the drive, or both.
Attaching the leader pin attach tool to an Ultrium tape cartridge. To hold the cartridge door open, hook the tool into the door and pull the tool back. To find the end of the tape inside the cartridge, attach the cartridge manual rewind tool 1 in Figure 46 on page to the cartridge's hub 2 by fitting the tool's teeth between the teeth of the hub.
When the tape is properly centered, a 0. Attaching the leader pin to the tape Close the pivot arm 4 of the leader pin attach tool by swinging it over the leader pin so that the C-clip snaps onto the pin and the tape.
To ensure continued reliability of your media, be sure to take this temperature difference into account when you set up the environment around your library.
Disposing of Ultrium tape cartridges This section describes how to dispose of Ultrium tape cartridges according to federal and other regulations. Under the current rules of the U. If you would like RFID labels, also specify the feature code provided.
This case can also be used for the Ultrium 2 and Ultrium 1 Tape Cartridges. You can order these labels separately from the IBM data cartridges and cleaning cartridges. Using tape drive media The section introduces information about the tape drive media. WORM functionality for tape drives and media All tape drives with the appropriate microcode version installed are capable of reading and writing WORM cartridges.
Segmentation is only available within a specified range of capacity scaling settings. Capacity scaling is not supported for economy or write-once-read-many WORM tapes. These settings are fully certified and are available as labeled and initialized part-numbered cartridges. Scaling support in drive Capacity scaling in the TS and later tape drives is controlled by the host program performing a Scaling operation.
TS and newer tape drives that are encryption-enabled perform encryption after compression. The bar code reader reads the VOLSER see 3 in Figure 50 of the cartridge bar code label 2 that is in the label area 4 of the cartridge. Each cleaning cartridge also contains a CM module, which tracks the number of cleaning uses and the location of the used cleaning media.
To help prevent errors caused by debris, it is important to clean the tape path of the tape drives and to manually clean the outside of its data cartridges, when needed. The cartridge door see 1 in Figure 53 on page is also light gray. Non-moveable light gray block Sample label for cleaning cartridge Figure Model L22 or Model D22 frame for the diagnostic cartridge.

The volume serial number J1HJA and bar code are printed on the label. Guidelines for using bar code labels Apply the following guidelines whenever you use bar code labels: The service procedure for verifying the type of scanner is documented in RPQ 8B Proper placement of the bar code label is required for optimum bar code scanner performance.
Setting the write-protect switch on a Cartridge This section gives instructions for setting the write-protect switch on a Tape Cartridge. The position of the write-protect switch on the Tape Cartridge see Figure 55 determines whether you can write to the tape. To avoid damage to your tape cartridges and to ensure the continued high reliability of your TS Tape Library, use the following guidelines Such exposure can cause the loss of recorded data or make the blank cartridge unusable.
Press the leader pin gently into the clips until it snaps into place and is firmly seated. Placing the dislodged leader pin into the correct position.. The cartridge door is open, showing the leader pin out of position 5.
To rewind the tape, insert the cartridge manual rewind tool see 1 in Figure 58 into the cartridge's hub 2 and turn it clockwise until the tape becomes taut. Contact your account representative for information about the materials that are in the cartridge. If a tape cartridge must be disposed of in a secure manner, IBM recommends that you use a qualified service provider to degauss and destroy the media. Ordering media supplies by using the tape media method If you order media by using the tape media method, IBM TotalStorage Enterprise Tape Media provides the ability to order unlabeled, pre-labeled, initialized, and bulk-packaged data cartridges in a variety of combinations.
You can also order cleaning cartridges. Table 60 on page lists the data cartridges and media supplies that you can order for tape drives by using part numbers. The different methods for ordering are listed at the bottom of the table. Order by part number through an IBM-authorized distributor for the closest distributor, visit the web at http: It also gives the speeds for varying lengths of cables.
Fibre Channel devices such as the TS Tape Library and a server are known as nodes and have at least one port through which to receive and send data. This protocol is supported when you attach the library through tape drives or Ultrium 2 and newer tape drives. In addition, the TS Tape Library allows you to set the drive port to any of these topologies. For example, if you have two host bus adapters HBAs from the same server connected to a tape drive in the TS Tape Library, the drive will be detected and appear as two logical devices.
That is, there will be two special files for one physical device. Any time that changes are made to the logical library or device configuration, you must reset the associated adapter or perform an initial program load IPL of the associated system to reconfigure the changes. Planning for application-managed encryption This topic explains application-managed encryption AME.
System z operating environments. Open systems Encryption policies specifying when to use encryption are set up in the IBM tape device driver. System-managed tape encryption and library-managed tape encryption interoperate with one another.
In other words, a tape encrypted using system-managed encryption may be decrypted using library-managed encryption, and vice versa, provided they both have access to the same keys and certificates. Failure to adhere to these rules may result in problems when enabling encryption. Keyboard navigation This product uses standard Microsoft; Windows navigation keys.
