Greetings All,

I'm in the process of resurrecting a VAX with a single RA81 disk
drive.  It powers up fine, but when pressing the RUN switch, the
disk starts spinning up and then stops.  Pressing FAULT causes
the B lamp to flash rapidly.

I've connected a terminal to the diagnostic port.  It prints 
"Front panel operation in progress" when the fault occurs and
returns to the command prompt.

Naturally I don't have documentation for the drive.  Can anyone
tell me what the flashing "B" indicates?
