I often see cases of Seagate where clients or previous DR shops have reconstructed the translator over terminal without preserving non resident list. Sometimes these can be resolved fully automatically via the Recover Translator in PC3000, sometimes it can be done partly automated and part manual intervnetion, other times it can be a real nightmare to resolve, especially when taking into account errors that relate to the MC!.
For this I want to show how to save NRG via its system file.
It should be worth noting that on some occasions the output from 'V40' is dependent on the NRGL actually loading with the translator. If it does not load, the output may be empty where in actual fact there are defects that need to be taken into account.
Attempt to load NRGL over system files by selecting 'Tools -> View and edit resources -> System file' and entering the address 'Volume 3, File ID 0035, Copy 0'. If this fails, then you will need to load it from the surface first. This is done at T> with command 'F3 T>r35' - once the T> is returned the file can be read using the first step above.
Once read, right click within the window consisting of the NRGL data, and select 'save to file'.
Some other useful files to take into account are:
3,17A,0 - Smart related tables - often associated with Sim Error 1009 fault.
0,20D,0 - CFW Overlay (vol 0x00 File ID 0x020D - CFW overlay)
3,01b,0 - P-List
3,028,0 - RW operations (translator)
3,093,0 - Saved Mode Pages (HDD ID edit)
3,035,0 - NRGL
3,135,0 - SMART
