Re: Bent pins on Octane front plane

the octanes are pretty common you can just replace that bad supply with a good one easy enough. its not like some of the bigger hatdware like the crimson where the parts are hard to find.

Re: Weight of a SGI Onyx Terminator / Moving suggestions

I don't have a trailer with a ramp or a truck with a lift gate available at the moment. A liftgate for the van is something I want to get down the line, its a pretty expensive addon. I have a ton of the anti static bags that the boards for my onyx2 came in, and a lot of antistatic wrap. I dont want ...

Re: SGI Onyx 10000 - memory and serial issues

I think i am just going to let it be and not risk destroying a part i can possibly not replace.

Weight of a SGI Onyx Terminator / Moving suggestions

Alright, getting close to the time i need to move the terminator rack. I have no lift gate on the van, so it certainly is not going to be lifted and put in there upright. How heavy is one of these? The plan is to tip it over and slide it into the van. Worked with my pdp 11 rack, but i think this cou...

Re: SGI Onyx 10000 - memory and serial issues

Alright, not sure where the issue was, i moved the machine to another room and reconnected the vt100 and It is working as intended, although still with the memory errors. Fixed couple of boot options in the prom, and it boots, to a working install from the Florida State University. Need to remove th...

Re: Onyx R10k IR deskside on the 'Bay

I can put the full specs of what was picked up in the hinv section later for those that are interested. I am uncertain as to what is in it at the moment. If it was not in Florida, it would not have been feasible for me to go drive and pick it up. The audio board is missing out of both, and there are...
