OK this could be my problem. My IO board ends in -006. I guess I am looking for a IO board now. The quad R10k board did come from a fellow Nekochaner (Nekochaniste? Nekochanoid?), but this sheds some new light on the issue.

Thanks,
James

I have been through the PROM settings and done all that I know how to do. The first time I used the board it showed all 4 procs and then it dropped 2. I could reseat them and it would work somethimes and sometimes not. I noticed that one or two of the carriers were not in the best shape, so I am ass...

Onyx 1 help

I have a Onyx 1 with quad R4400 150's. I also have a quad r10k 195 board to go into it. I am having a problem with the R10k board. The system will not see all the processors and it is driving me nuts. I don't think it is the board or the procs, I think it may be the carriers. If anyone has the time ...

I looked at ULINE but they only sell in lots of 100 for $77.00. I don't need that many. I just want to protect the 2 boards I have here. The company I work for does business with ULine and I think I will ask if someone can get a couple of 'samples'. The board dim. are 16 in X 15 in Thanks for all th...

I'm mostly looking for the purple front door and the lower skid plates. THey're small enough to make shipping doable - is the hole in the black or the purple parts ? Can you send some pics ? Well, it looks like you beat me to them Joe :) I still have the 10000 IR front door if you want to trade for...

anti-static bag

This may be out of place but .... I am in need of 2 anti-static bags large enough to store a IP19 board form an Onyx and a CPU board from a Power series deskside. If anyone can help please let me know.

Thanks a million,
James

Onyx R10k CPU board question

I have a quad R10k board in my Onyx (1) but it is only showing 2 cpu's working. What is the best way to determine if this is a board problem or if those two chips are dead?

Thanks in advance,
James

Compiler/IDL & IDF conflict

This may sound like a foolish question but it is giving me grief. The 6.5 CD set I have has version 7.2.1 of the IDL and IDF CD's. My MipsPro C and C++ compilers are versions 7.3.1. I am getting a error stating the they are incompatable. where can I find a newer version of the IL and IDF CD's? Thank...

New IP25 question

OK here is a new question. Are there jumpers on the IP25 board for making the CPU's active? I fired up the board in my Onyx and first I get an 'error' message (for lack of a better term) that tells me that slot 2 used to have a IP19 and now has a IP25, click<enter> to continue. I click enter and get...

looking for 2-way thermal tape

I am looking for some 2-way thermal tape to 're-apply' a heatsink. I know there are different kinds but does that really matter as long as it transfers heat? The heatsink is the small one on a LSI chip in the rear of a IP25 board. The old tape is transparent and very thin, not the same as the stuff ...

OK, I looked at the board closer and found CPU 2. I reseated all the SIMMs and the chip, but I am still getting the same message. I guess my questions should be:

What is 'slice 1' ?

and

What is 'slot 2' ?

Thanks again,
James
