    Looking at Digikey and Mouser, the 19 pin D-sub connectors are still made, but you probably won't like the prices for any of the ones with shorter lead time availability. Some are marked as ship from...

    You need to concentrate on identifying which serial port is the ODT console port that the J-11 CPU will talk to if it is configured to enter ODT at reset. This port is also commonly used by the DEC...

    Was everything cabled up when you got the system? If so, you did record where every cable went? Is there a DLART on the CPU board? That will almost certainly be the console port.
