Hi folks,

I've got my VAX3800 resuscitated after many years in limbo and two of the
four RF71s in there have gone bad. Has anyone tried swapping the controller
boards between drives? Is it just a matter of letting the drive
auto-calibrate or do I need to SET HOST onto the controller and tell it it's
on a different HDA...

Here it is in a happier mood shortly after first powerup:
