Before I trash 3 quad Origin 300s...

Unread postby PymbleSoftware » Tue Jun 02, 2009 6:20 pm

I have three Origin 300s and a PCI cage as described in the hinv section:
viewtopic.php?f=14&t=17314&hilit=+300&start=15
and I have an L2 controller and a router brick, power module and all the cables, etc..

I have put it together as per the tech pubs document...
http://techpubs.sgi.com/library/tpl/cgi ... 279-PARENT

I have a router brick not an Origin 300 NUMA link brick
This is likely to cause my biggest headaches:

a) The Router Brick/NumaLink Modules are reported to be the hardest to overcome the serial security issue <not withstanding the claim of one member - for which he can't or won't provide detail>

b) SGI probably used a NumaLink Module <rather than an O3k Router brick> for a reason. I'm aware that that reason could have solely been for marketing purposes, but this snippet from the PCI Module manual might offer a hint:

TechPubs wrote: The SGI 300 compute module cannot connect to a P-brick because the P-brick requires a connection to the I/O interface (II) of a Bedrock ASIC. The I/O interface of the SGI 300 compute module's Bedrock ASIC connects to an internal Xbridge ASIC.

In order to expand the I/O capabilities of the SGI 300 compute module, the network interface (NI) of the SGI 300 compute module's Bedrock ASIC is used. This interface must connect to another NI port; therefore, it must connect to a device that has a Bedrock ASIC. The PCI expansion module has a Bedrock interface card (BIC) that contains a Bedrock ASIC. (The P-brick does not contain a Bedrock ASIC.)

This Bedrock-to-Bedrock communication is referred to as peer I/O. The PCI expansion module is a “peer” I/O device to the SGI 300 compute module. In other words, the SGI 300 compute module communicates with the PCI expansion module in the same manner that it would communicate with another SGI 300 compute module.


So does the Numalink module also use peer-to-peer topology and the O3k Router not?

None of this is well documented and anyone who has achieved this has kept it secret.

I started a wiki topic
http://www.nekochan.net/wiki/ ... Origin_300


I have sent PMs to various people and the response I have gotten back have been terse and opaque, which kind makes want to dump it all in land fill and move somewhere rural overseas.

You are already somewhere rural overseas :)

You also need to remember that you're trying to outsmart SGI. They never intended for users to be doing these things. They made their living by doing what your are trying to do for free. Of course they aren't going to help you. Once the genie is out of the bottle no one on earth can put it back in.

Gee, thanks hamei, you've been a great help.

or just honest -

As I said in the PM I have never done this and I expect it could throw up a serial number mismatch..

I wasn't actually referring to your PM.
Thanks anyway.

The fact that you have a router brick isn't the problem so much as the fact that it's serial number is already set to match the previous system it was plugged into. You're getting errors because the serial number currently set on your Origin 300 systems doesn't match the one in the R brick (note that the L2 controller also needs to match). If your L1 Controller firmware version on your O300s is low enough you can manually set (or clear)the serial number as long as security hasn't been enabled on them. This may or may not help you because I believe that the first character of the serial number in an O300 system can only be certain characters. So you may or may not be able to set them to match the router. If you can't you need to reset the serial number in the R brick. Doing this unfortunately requires a security code that is based on the serial number of the R brick and the time. Be careful when you do do this though, because the R brick will pick a serial number from an adjacent device and burn it in (which will likely be your L2 controller). So pick a valid serial number and set them all the same on your O300s and L2 controller first...then reset the R brick. There is also feature codes to do things like enable extra ports on the router...

Hope this helps,
-Jesse

Thanks heaps..

I am going to have to reread that again and get my head around it before I get home.

Some additional background info might be helpful:

    The output of "serial all" from the L1 controller of the R-Brick.

    The output of "serial all" from the L1 Controller of the O300 you intend to have as the linked system master.

    The output of "ver" from the L1 of each individual module <including the L2>.

Re: Before I trash 3 quad Origin 300s...

Ah yes, that kick started my brain a bit. If memory serves, you can't set a serial number with the prefix 'L' on an O300 (but you should try it anyway just in case) so you will have to reset the router brick. First though, you'll want to get all your O300s and L2 to match, so the serial that gets copied to the router on reset is one that's compatible w/ your O300s (the router doesn't seem to have the same restriction). Someone at SGI support might be kind enough to help you with the resetting part if you ask nicely...

Also, you'll want to get all of your L1s (and PROMs if they're not) at the same version after you get everything talking, it'll save you some headaches in the longrun. I'm at 1.22.4 on everything except the L2 (which is 1.32.4) and it's been working flawlessly (and no, it didn't enable security on my O300s and I'm still able to do a "serial clear" from the L1 successfully). To be safe though, get them connected together first.

Oh, btw...the easiest way to get the serials on your O300s in sync is to set the L2 to one they can set (prefix 'M') then do a 'serial clear' on each O300...if everything is wired properly it should pick up the serial from the L2 Controller automagically.

Like So:

Code: Select all

001c01-L1>serial clear
001c01-L1>
001c01-L1>
001c01-L1>001c01 INFO: System serial number reassigned to M1000707 from attached L2.


Good Luck,
-Jesse

The machine and L1 errors in question is looks like the image below:

My original Origin 300 came from Walt Disney Studios and the name stuck.

I think the serial number is going to change the lmhostid..
I am going to lose my MIPS Pro and Maya licenses again aren't I..?

If memory serves, you can't set a serial number with the prefix 'L' on an O300 (but you should try it anyway just in case)

Code: Select all

I'd say that's likely, but I'm not sure honestly. Maybe someone else can shed some light on that?

Cool.

Its about midnight here and they are messing with my power again tomorrow so I have to turn everything in the house off... It is a 3 day weekend here (Known as Queens Birthday) so I will have most of the weekend to work on it and play with the little Qt on IRIX app that I have been writing.. Right now I should really get to sleep.
