That 1000base-SX was supposed to be an FC adapter :( Skins are in excellent condition, and after some repairs (bolts and nuts!) the feet stay under again. Those skins are rediculously fragile :evil:

Grovey .... FDDI is something that I never got/wanted to play with. By the time I started playing with 'real' networking and computers 100Base had already long since killed FDDI. What kind of performance can you get out of the thing ??

Also can you noticed/tested (could you ??) any performance difference between the two GigE cards ??

FDDI is 100MBit so it doesn't bring much to a system with builtin 100Mbit ethernet and a gigabit adapter. Normally I reserve FDDI for systems with 10Mbit ethernet.

I'm thinking of moving my distribution / install server to this system. My current install server is a Challenge S, and if I install a system with 100MBit ethernet (let's say an O2), then that system has a 10Mbit path to the Challenge via ethernet, and a 100Mbit path via the router and the FDDI segment. But then you have to do a full network configuration of the system being installed (in the miniroot). Curiously, if I do an install of a system with 10Mbit ethernet and FDDI (lets say an Onyx), it will load the miniroot via TFTP over 10Mbit ethernet, but then do the actual installation over FDDI automatically.

I've got no 1000base-SX anywhere, nor a media converter. With 3c996bT cards going for less than 10EUR I'm not motivated to find one either.

ATM, no thanks! What I wanted was to get faster disk I/O than the builtin UW SCSI. One of these days an FC disk box is going to cross my path :)

I picked up a new BlackBox media converter a couple of years ago on eBay - at the time the price seemed too good to pass up <but I've never used it>.

When Joe did the 'neko group buy' on the copper SGI gigabit cards it was pretty much the end of the idea of using any 1000base-SX stuff <there's five or six of 'em in storage with the Fore ATM stuff and the media converter>.

Here are a couple of pics I took after a successful skin transplant. Nerve wrecking business, changing the skins on an O200, you expect them to crumble under your hands any seconds.

Inside. Nothing special here.

Whee! An origin 200 with front door!

And it works!

Scars

On the last photo you can see some battle scars: the old door was glued back together with super glue many, many times and once I spilled some glue which burnt a scar into the top panel.

that's a beautiful Origin 200!

The plastics of the purple Indigo2 on the left on the other hand are very sturdy.
It seems that SGI changed the quality of the plastics for the later machines to the worst :-(

Anyway, here is a nice article for about the O200:

I agree, the Indigo2 plastics are, for the most part, rugged enough. The tabs on the front door always get broken first when someone doesn't realize that you can't stack things on top of it.
On the other hand my PI plastics have broken many tabs. I'm going to experiment with plastic welding to see if they can be reattached.

I am about to buy an Origin 200. I want to get a full set of plastic just like this because I don't have a rack mount.

Anyways, I was wondering if there is some data somewhere that has the dimensions of these pieces? Like a cad file etc.

The feet, the sides, the top. etc. I realize the door is a bit more intricate with the perforated part.

My brother works at a prototyping plant in Santa Rosa and does all kinds of metal and plastic parts.

Would just need a file that has the data for these. Or even if the pieces could get scanned.

Would probably create plastics that are far more robust.

It does seem ironic that there is a key for the door when it can just come off so easy,.

EDIT----

So were these the same skins as before just repaired? I can see the original "origin 200" logo looks the same between 2008 and 2016 with the little tear repeair visible.

I originally bought the O200 with intact skins. Then when I went to pick up the system the seller wanted to demonstrate that the door was still intact -- and promptly broke it. Hello Origin 200 :( I fixed that, it broke again, and finally my wife bumped into it and it broke the other hinge. I must have glued it at least 3 or 4 times. Some smaller pieces of the top skin are missing or glued back on. All four feet have been modified with bolts and nuts to stay under the system. It is really that bad.

I'm busy moving some equipment in my computer room. I think this one is going to find a spot in a corner where no one gets close to it. Or maybe I should simply put it inside a bulletproof glass showcase and operate it remotely.

Nice work j-j !

I know it too much as well how fragile these plastics are. Not only the door's hinges but also the feet. There are 4 small hollow "tubes" that go through the metal chassis. As soon as you try lifting the O200, you take a risk. If you don't lift the O200 vertically, but tilt it a little bit, clack, it breaks :x
My main module's four feet are broken. It sits on the floor. The second is supported by a wooden feet... like captain Hook.

I know I took one or two photos when I modified the feet of my O200, want me to dig them up for you?

Basically, I drilled a hole through both 'tubes' (top parts breaks off anyway), and then you can put a regular metric screw through them, and with a washer and a self-locking nut (with nylon insert) fasten them. Don't over tighten the nut and the feet will be adjustable like they should. The feet were supposed to attach to a metal base, underneath the O200. You have to remove that first, rework the feet, and then reinstall the whole assembly.
