Absolutely, the ALDs went with the machines, whether sold or
leased. The ALDs contained machine specific info for the
emulators loaded into it, as well as all ECOs applied at the
factory and in the field. So, you could have 2 identical
models at an installation, and there would be TWO ALD carts,
with serial numbers on them, so they knew which one applied
to which box.
