Code A900 2000 when restoring

I received code A900 2000 when restoring a V4R4 OS on an AS400 5XX series. Can you explain why?

The document will detail the source code problems as a configuration problem with the console.

AS/400e or iSeries 400 Control Panel Shows SRC A900 2000 This results when AS/400 Operations Console is not configured to be the console device and a Normal IPL is performed. Perform a Manual IPL and configure the AS/400e or iSeries 400 system for AS/400 Operations Console.
