A large system of silicon strip detectors with double sided readout has been successfully commissioned over the course of the last year at the e/sup +/e/sup -/ collider LEP. The readout of this 73728 channel system is performed with custom designed VLSI charge sensitive amplifier chips (CAMEX64A). An overall point resolution of 12 mu m on both sides has been achieved for the complete system. The most important difficulties during the run were beam losses into the detector, and a chemical agent deposited onto the electronics; however, the damage from these sources was understood and brought under control. This and other results of the 1991 data-taking run are described with special emphasis on the operational experience.
