Onyx/Tezro - Error: ERROR: SCAN:scan error - unable to reset scan hardware

Hi Nekochaners, for no apparent reason I am now getting a boot up failure on one of my Onyx nodes. This is similar to what was reported in this thread : http://forums.nekochan.net/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=16731353&p=7396316&hilit=scan+error#p7396316 Not sure but speculation was that this was ...

Onyx 4 - Internals

Hi Nekochaners, here are some photo's of internals which could be helpful to others, doing origin/tezro/onyx surgery: 1. Onyx 4 - Next Generation Graphics Platform (G2 Brick) i.e. ATI Graphics Module Note: this is CPU-less board, but nothing special beyond having no cpu. Will test converting it to G...

Re: Best workstation to start with?

Hi nekochaners, No flames or fights.... but I really do think is is hard to go past Octane as a great sgi box in terms of its combination of 64 bit irix support, modular and trouble free hardware versatility, connectivity, graphics & media flexibility and great design. Having recently been playi...

Re: "dubious" - was Tezro: now Onyx 4 - 4x1G/4x800MHz with 16G ram + V12/DCD

Hi Nekochaners, in deciding to move from deskside Tezro to rack mount Tezro, dubious has now morphed into Onyx 4 (i.e. Chimera Origin/Onyx). Here is current hinv. It took me quite a bit of effort to get to this point as I got a bunch of rack mount Onyx 4's from Mopar (mopar5150) (awesomely well pack...

Re: How do I find the Origin2000 MAC address?

Hi Nekochaners, in process of doing clean IRIX install (must be over network as I have long since got rid of CDs) and using Nekochan as resource to get netbook going. I am re-finding out problems that have come up before. So suggest that easiest way to get MAC address is: 1. Go to PROM command 2. Do...

Re: Rack Tezro/ Onyx4 V12 and UV/ IR4 Test.

Hi Mopar5150, great to see this testing. It’s just like old Dr Dave days (for those nekochaners who remember). Love the fact that you had IR4 laying about and put it into test, also love the industrial Rack trolley wheels... I remember lusting after IR4 as ultimate SGI revival target. Who knows, whe...

Re: Dubious Tezro on ebay (certainly not mine!)

Hi Nekochaners, dubious is now in Australia. I opened it up before starting as thought it would be full of dust and a health hazard. Surprisingly it is very clean inside and appears to have had very little real use, even if skins are a bit battered and there is bent metal near one of rear wheels. It...

Re: How can Apple reclaim its dominance over PC-based workstations?

Irinikus, I have Mac Pro 2012, which I bought new just before they introduced trash can Mac, so it is now 5 years old. During this time I have: 1. Upgraded CPUs to 3.46GHz (x5690) 2. Replaced MacPro RAID with Areca ARC-1883 with internal SAS & external SAS 3. Added SmallTree 10Gbe 4. Been throug...

Re: Dubious Tezro on ebay (certainly not mine!)

Hi Irinikus, the reason why I have not posted on nekochan for long time is because I moved all my work needs over to Mac OS X some time ago. This includes Mac Xserve with SmallTree 10Gbe & SAS RAID card and DAS storage units, in basement. I have well backed up archive of over 20 year work on thi...
