O2 powers on automatically at midnight

Unread postby falsovsky » Thu Mar 22, 2012 3:21 am

Hi,

I have a SGI O2 that a friend donated to me. It had IRIX 6.5 on it, but a few days ago I changed its hard drive, and installed OpenBSD/sgi on the new one.
Everything works perfectly as expected.

The only problem that is happening is that the machine now is powering on automatically everyday at midnight since I installed OpenBSD.
Anyone knows why this happens? Is there any "bios-like" thingy where this is defined?
Any idea on what it could be?

Thanks in advance,
Pedro de Oliveira

go to prom monitor... option 5 at bootup.

type resetenv to put everything to normal (printenv to see what is there)

Also: Welcome to Nekochan!

For general O2 info after you get past this issue, have a look at our O2 wiki page for a lot of info and links to further resources.

Hi,

Even if printenv doesn't show anything related to "waking up" will resetenv do anything to fix this "issue" ?
(I just don't want to lose the OpenBSD boot configuration in vain)

Thanks!

Hi
the wakeup is controlled by the calendar clock chip (DS1687). This is a separate function from the NVRAM storage and the presence of this wakeup event is not programmable from the PROM Monitor. You can use the Irix wakeupat(1M) command to change it.
