Nope. No NVRAM either. Just a bunch of dip switches like an XT.
Check the NCR web site for info.

I had a 6300 and always wanted a 6300+. BTW, the story I heard is
David Korn wrote the Korn Shell on a 6300+ for System V.

It was used at AT&T as a single user development box for a while
until the workstations began to appear as AT&T's Bell Labs moved from
Vaxes and 3b's with BLIT's and 630 terminals to 7300's and later
to Sun Workstations.

      Three things never anger: First, the one who runs your DEC,
      The one who does Field Service and the one who signs your check.
