This post maybe violates one of the most important forum rules but I'm helpless and give it a try.

Re: Sun Enterprise 420R CPU Slave timeout

Once before, in the first days I had also serveral problems with my Ultra 80 :? It's because somtimes CPU modules and memory riser board are not installed properly.

Re: Sun Enterprise 420R CPU Slave timeout

So the NVRAM is dead? What do you mean with timeout?
Is it possible to get more input?
- console output and/or messages
- PROM version
- board part# and revision (type is the same used for Ultra 80 workstations)
- CPU part#'

Solaris 10 not, right but OpenSXCE of course because it was "back-ported" to UltraSPARC I. You should give it a try.

Re: Sun ultra 80

If you're knowing the later products with UltraSPARC III(+), named Blade 1000 and 2000 then you're able to imagine that the housing is originated from the Ultra 80 lines of workstations.
