Re: Home AIX Lab Server

Oh yeah 8-) HSCL100C The PowerVM Standard Edition activation code has been accepted by the managed system. Multiple logical partitions, Micro-Partitioning, and Virtual I/O Server capabilities have been enabled. Strange thing is that the CoD IBM page shows 2 VET codes for my server, but the HMC (long...

Re: Home AIX Lab Server

Yay !
Now - are those disk trays good ?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/282061395980
http://www.ebay.com/itm/272084758372

They have a SCA80 connector for the HDD. Are those standard or there are multiple incompatible types of SCSI trays ?
Thanks.

Re: Home AIX Lab Server

YAY ! Got the p520 from ebay !

Thanks for the parts reference. Is the compatibility strictly enforced by the firmware ? For example - will 53P3232 2GB ram sticks - which are listed as p570 parts - work in my p520 ? They have the same specs (type & speed).

Re: Home AIX Lab Server

Thanks for the investigation ! Do you know if the P5 trays are for SCA80 drives or 68 pin ones ? Is the firmware or AIX itself complaining if the drives don't have IBM-branded firmware ? Now that you posted the link to that P5 ( which i was already watching ) here, it might end not that cheap :) Is ...

Re: Home AIX Lab Server

<rant> Welcome to the IT Services business. Where all the servers either belong to the customers or are billed to the customer. And there's no budget line for training 'cause that's not something that creates revenue. And with 7+ levels of management (i really lost count) - it does not matter if you...

Re: Home AIX Lab Server

We have almost a hundred dev/test LPARs at my work ... for the applications. It's a 100% ITIL shop with departments that bill each-other so i cannot create a LPAR just for me. And even if i get one created i'll need to schedule any reboot 5 days in advance with management approvals. So ... no. I mus...

Re: Home AIX Lab Server

Do the HMCs for POWER6 needs to run on special hardware ? I remeber a friend getting a power5 285 workstation and using a crappy old dell laptop as HMC. What's the Capacity on Demand stuff ? I'm zero with the IBM stuff. What about the licences ? If the box does not come from the factory with such an...

Re: HP 9000/8x7 (F,G,H,I-class) memory/CPU/FPU

Mine has a 48Mhz with 64/64KB L1 cache w/o FPU. A x30 board will work for sure and maybe a x40 (PA-7000 64Mhz).

I actually had an x50 CPU board a few years before i got this machine but i gave-it away :(
