Origin 2000 rack side panels

Anyone know and can tell me what type of material that is used for the Origin 2000 / Onyx2 rack side panels?
Mine are missing, and I can't seem to find replacements, so I was thinking of making some.

Wanted: SGI Origin 2000 series Rack sides / walls

Re: Obtaining licenses for old software

I was thinking more along the lines of what other vendors have done. Release the software as open source. That way the community of enthusiast would do the work with their resources, and Autodesk, Adobe and the rest would gain a lot in the form of public relations.

Re: SGI Origin 2400 Rack cabling help

A cool, I see, I seem to have one of those in each module. So I gather these are to connect to external SCSI devices such as disk arrays? I also have some other cards, they seem to be different variations of Fibre Channel boards. Guessing they are for the same purpose as the SCSI controllers. I also...

Re: SGI Origin 2400 Rack cabling help

Ok I read through the documents I got from the irix7 website. I managed to figure out how to connect the two cpu modules, and the serial cables for the terminal module. But I couldn't find anything about that "A / B" cable. Anyone know what that is? And where it is supposed to go?

SGI Origin 2400 Rack cabling help

Hi guys, I have now put together the rack and the cpu modules. Now I need to figure out where the cables go, and I am hoping you guys can help me out. These are mighty strange cables for a PC man like myself :) So I have these fat cables: 20171112001505.JPG They fit in the connectors of the routers ...

Re: SGI Origin 2400 Rack spacing

I figured it out :) It was due to me not leaving enough room for the upper airwell. I had it too far down the void between the modules.

This was a fun project! Now all I need to do is make it run, and figure out how to hook all the cables up.
:D

SGI Origin 2400 Rack spacing

I just tried to fit everything into my rack, but for some reason there is a gap of about 2-3 cm on top. Is that correct?

Re: Broken IO6-G bought on eBay

The seller refunded me today so that is great! Now I just need to either find a daughterboard replacement - which I asked them for. I still need to figure out what that component is next to it. I checked the datasheet for the IC that is next to it, the one that looks like a transistor. It is a volta...

Re: Broken IO6-G bought on eBay

The daughterboard looks like to be for video of some kind. I should be able to solder these components in fine. What does that board do? It says "Video" and something beginning with "S". Is this video output? Or is it some kind of wordclock for syncing video sources? To get that ...
