If the system is no longer in production, then how about loading a single
user version of D3 ProPlus, NT, or Linux onto some PC, then loading the data
so that you can retrieve it at your convenience?
- The expense will be $1000 some-odd dollars.
- The savings will be
---In consulting dollars: they won't have to pay you or anyone else for mega
hours to try to resurrect the old system.
---In hardware/OS rental or leasing to IBM; they won't need the RS/AIX
---In electricity - OK, so I'm grabbing now, but it's a factor.
---Time - Get it now and have the data back next week - done - full stop.
Good Luck in any case.
