I assume you mean 07/Aug/99 rather than 08/Jul/99?  :-)

Can you ssh out?  CVS_RSH=ssh should do the trick if so.

Well, according to /usr/sam/lib/mo/sched.models (a very useful file!)

715     1.1c    PA7100LC

It doesn't mention the submodels explicitly.  However,


says the 715/100 (both variants!) have PCXL CPUs which is the same as that
on the 712 models, which we know to be the 7100LC.

Sorry I can't be of any help on the actual problem though...
