Re: SGIs Amphitheatre Technology Campus (back then)

SGI still had a company store as of 2002, it was located between the Customer Briefing Center and Cafe Ozone in building 40. Lots of SGI-logoed shirts, watches, etc. There was also a Nintendo 64 on display, kind of a sign of the times. B40 is the one you see most often on news stories about Google, ...

Re: Can O2 boot from fibre channel?

Although you could clone out to a fibre-channel drive, it's not bootable - in order to boot from a device, it has to be seen in the PROM monitor (that is the PROM monitor has to be able to find the boot device, in order to boot it) Makes sense. I just read a similar reply in a similar thread asking...

Can O2 boot from fibre channel?

Two questions:
Is it possible to boot an O2 from an external FC drive hanging off a QLA2200?

From what I understand, IRIX sees FC drives pretty much the same as it sees SCSI drives on the O2. Can I safely use dd to copy/clone a FC drive to a similar SCSI drive and vise versa?
