i6000 - Generating License Keys

Quick pointer: If you're using this for anything other than lab testing, well, you really shouldn't. If you've got to have someone tell you that such things are ethically and legally problematic, you're probably not a very good person anyway. Or just not thinking. Either way, think before you use this info. 

Turns out that Quantum/ADIC helpfully includes the binary for generating license keys!

CAN Issue Resolves Itself

After being powered off and unplugged for a few weeks the CAN issue that I'd been having with the i6000 seems to have resolved itself. However the LTO-6 tape drive/sled I have isn't powering up at all. IDK what's going on with that. The error is that the barcode on the drive isn't recognized. This is caused by the system not having the drive registered via the system bus. Which in this case is caused by the sled not powering up. 

i6000 Status

The i6000 is on holding pending the end of FRC Build/Competition season. RoboLoCo is doing well so far this year but mentoring is a massive time sink. Oh well, ton's of VTO for me!

At last check the i6000 doesn't boot with other controllers installed. The next steps will be to monitor the serial output during a normal boot and then compare that with other line card boots. 

i6000 Arrival

The i6000 arrived yesterday. It's unpacked, off the skid, and in the garage. After putting a few bolts back in (holds the two chassis together) and bolting a few other things back on it's powering up and robotics are on. It shows as online.

However the drives aren't showing up. The UI indicates a few issues probably related to the CAN bus. That all seems connected though. So I'm not sure what's up right now.
