NOTE: The IBM 3151 or 3153 dumb terminals are end-of-life and therefore not supported by IBM or Eclipse.
The IBM 3151 and 3153 ASCSII Display Stations typically deployed with older, standalone IBM pSeries servers have long since been discontinued and are unavailable from IBM for purchase or support. If you are looking for a replacement console for system administration, you have a few options:
- Hyperterminal/PuTTY (supported by IBM): you may simply connect the console serial port of the IBM pSeries server to a Windows workstation or server and use Hyperterm to open a console session.
- IBM Hardware Management Console (supported by IBM): the IBM Hardware Management Console is the only supported method for administering current-generation pSeries servers. It provides local and network interfaces to the service processor of your pSeries server. If you would like a quote, please contact your Epicor Direct sales representative. The HMC connects to a standard VGA monitor and PS/2 keyboard or KVM switch for local administration.
- Boundless ADDS 3153 LF (supported by Boundless): this is a replacement text terminal from the company that designed manufactured the original IBM 3151/3153 terminals. This terminal connects to a standard VGA monitor and PS/2 keyboard or KVM switch for local administration. Please contact Boundless for more information.
- IBM 3151/3153 (unsupported): you may be able to find refurbished IBM 3151/3153 terminals on sites like eBay.
