Re: Pair of Origin 200 servers in Quebec - not mine

The pictured CPU module is a 013-2511-001 which according to Ian's Origin parts list is a dual R12K 270 MHz module with 4 MiB of L2 cache.

Re: Hardware partitioning on O200

Ok, as the docs don't tell much about the setpart PROM monitor command, I'll give some details about it on Origin 200s: setpart options: >> setpart -h setpart: Setup/teardown partitions. options: -v: Verbose -h: Print out help about cmds -s: Setup partitions -c: Clear all partitions -l: List all par...

Re: Hardware partitioning on O200

So, if you pull this off, you'll probably end up with two O200 systems (modules) with a rather fast interconnect. I don't know how the interconnect is exposed (MPI?). An interesting experiment, but I'm not sure how useful it is. Then again, that's true for most things I do with my SGIs :D According...

Re: Stripping six O200: what should i keep?

BTW, would an Origin 2000 with a star-router board accept these jumpers to not require a craylink cable? I don't know, as I don't have an Origin 2000. But from the "Figure 2-9. Origin2000 Router Boards" and the corresponding paragraphs for "Star Router Board" and "Rack Rout...

Hardware partitioning on O200

⋅ Does anyone have some experience with (hardware) partitioning an O200? ⋅ Can this be done from the firmware monitor or do you need IRIX for it? ⋅ And, also important, will each partition behave like a "real" machine for other OSes than IRIX or does this onl...

Re: Indigo R4000 power supply repair PEC4044B 6064459

Upon turning the switch off, the power supply exhibited a high-pitched whine for about 10 seconds. After you have repaired the PSU, is that "high-pitched whine" sound after turning the switch off gone now? I have an Indigo which is currently not in working order because of ripped/missing ...

Re: Stripping six O200: what should i keep?

Anything else i need to salvage? People might be interested in PIMM's but I can't test them, so taking them out and shipping a part in unknown state is a bit beyond my principles and potentially wastes a lot of time. If your O200s have the XTOWN board for the GIGAchannel expansion cabinet this migh...

Re: your latest purchase

I wonder why SGI never thought about external enclosures for single CDROM and disk drives that match the design of the base machine (i.e. CDROM for Octane, etc.). They did: The Indy had the Challenge Vault S, the Indigo2 had the Challenge Vault M, and the O200 had the Origin Vault. I actually knew ...

Re: Inventory/Catalog

So why not use a directory structure like an inventory? This focuses very much on *where* a part is. As if things stay in the boxes they arrive in, in chronological order. Not necessarily: you can move around things by simply mv ing the contents between boxes/directories (plus doing that in reality...

Re: your latest purchase

HP 9000 Model 712/80 I owned a 712*100Mhz/192MB of ram, it was good as X11 terminal, but with gentoo it took 15 weeks (24h/24) just to compile a minimal stage4 :shock: Sounds like a good burn-in test. If it doesn't went up in flames during 105 days of continuous operation, heat might not be a probl...
