Greetings all!

I thought this may be a nice place for my first post. I have not had a lot of experience with SUN in the past but I definitely want them to become a big part of my life. I just inherited some workstations from a friend's Dad! I will post a picture of them when I get home from work, along with some SGI stuff to prove my worth here! I will be posting quite a bit as I document my adventures to bring them back to working order, pictures too of course! I am a long time hardware tinkerer, I hope to begin to play with software now.

Ultra 30 with windows PC card!
Sun Branded Trinitron (the one with the blue base that I always wanted!)

Along with a bunch of SCSI goodness: A couple of Caddy CD drives, DDS3 Drive, 2 DLT drives, a couple of flexpack double deckers, 2 911 enclosures (disks too) and one 811 enclosure (disks too).

I hope I am in the right place! I am not afraid to admit I am a SUN noob but I do have some experience with UNIX and IRIX. I want to dive into this stuff deep as I transition careers from Network Support at a small business to a UNIX admin.

Is there a thread for general SGI gear discussion as well?

Thanks!

Jess

Well, that's pretty much the rest of the board ... ;)

Do you mean sunPCi card?

Well, good news: we have installed and configured successfully our sunPCi 1 card (400MHz) in our ultra5. And our huge sun collection was extended by a sun sparcstation 10! <3

Sadly I was more or less forced by someone at my home :) to dump a few machines and when I did so it was well over 20 IPC/IPC SS1, SS2 very very sad :(
Now I have SS2, SS5 SS10 and U5, U10, Blade 100, Blade 1500 Blade 2500 U45 E250 E450(fully loaded with pretty new 300GB drives :) V210, V220 V240 V215 Netra T1 and a T2000 as a fileserver running S11 now with16TB mirrored ZFS main pool and more :)

Her, not but there will not be a next time ;)

BTW, I have also done a similar thing with a complete 4 rack PDP11/44 and 11/23.

Somehow I start to understand that girls have a bad influence on me, but a second though I think they have that on all guys :lol:

My current lets me have what I want, as long as it's in the office or the loft.. my ex though.. I'm not sure I got everything back (missing 3 Indy's, a PI and an Indigo - I think).

Women do though have a tendency to throw my beloved clothes out stating they cannot find them.. it's like I'm unfashionable!

Mentioned it in another thread, but I'm in the process of getting a Blade 2000 up and running (first Sun I've owned since I gave away my Ultra I and II before moving out west.) 2x1GHz, 8GB RAM, 2x146GB FC-AL hard disks, an XVR-1000, and a SunPCi-II, currently awaiting the arrival of A. a 13W3-to-VGA adapter (gorram video card won't do console output to the HDMI or VGA outputs!) and B. drive sleds. Already had it successfully boot from the Solaris install disk. Looking forward to playing around with this :)

The Suns I have are real old:
One 3/60 without color
Two 3/80s, with two mg2 and one cg6
Three Sparcstation 1s
A Sparcstation ELC with a spare 40 MHz cpu board

I used to lurk here back in the day but family and changing jobs back in 2008 meant a curtailment of the time I had free for all my interests. Things are more settled now (son is 7 years old already!) and I can spend a bit more time in the computer cave, with:
1. SS IPC with TGX+, SunOS 4.1.4 - first UNIX box I bought, runs fine on its 2nd PS; HD is 20+ years old...
2. 3xSS20, with 2xSX & a ZX; 2 on Sol8, 1 on NextStep 3.3; one of these has been a main machine of mine since 2000 (was my router & PPP link back in the dial-up days, using IPF to keep the unwashed hordes at bay);
3. SS5 with TCX, running NextStep 3.3 (mighty quick compared to my NeXT black HW);
4. Ultra 60 with Sol 10 (currently down).
Looking to pick up a Blade 2500 soon...

Heck, I'll update my list. Of actual real "Sun" hardware, I have a Sun Ultra-3, which is actually a Tadpole Viper with a Sun label on the top, and a SPARCstation IPX somewhere in storage that's probably blown its Dallas battery by now. And ... that's it. The Ultra-3 runs Solaris 10 and the SPARCstation IPX runs mumble.

But I have other SPARC systems, mostly Solbournes. The Solbourne S3000 was revived and is happy. During the process of upgrading its CPU, I took stock of the other Solbournes around here. There's an S4000 and two S4100s, another S3000 but the screen is busted, and a Series 5 that I need to see if it even works, since I think it's the only VMEbus system I own of any architecture. They all run some version of OS/MP but the hard disks are shot in all of the S4x00 machines. Fortunately, SCSI2SD devices seem to work just fine in the IDT systems, at least.

Finally, picked up an RDI Ultrabook IIi, full complement of hard disks. It runs Solaris 10 too.

So, I'll add to my entry by posting this from the SS20 (with dual 75MHz SuperSPARC-II & SX "fb", running Sol 8 with OpenWindows as the GUI). Patience was required in order to get to here using FF 2.0.0.20....
I have a SS2 & a SS10 around for which I reprogram the NVRAM when I fire them up. And an Ultra 2 (2x300MHz, Creator3D FFB2+) that awaits a new PS...

ClassicHasClass: I have a long-dead SPARCbook 1 in a box. I'm pretty sure I don't want to try reviving it....
My earlier post was done from a PowerMac 1.25GHz MDD running OS X Tiger, using TFF 38 <bows to ClassicHasClass>. The newest computer in the house that I use when not in the subterranean computer cave is the last version of the PowerBook (1.67GHZ iwth hi-res screen). Everything in the cave is much older, back to PI's and PowerSeries towers (including a Twin Tower 120GTX)....
