Jesse - some background info from you might prove equally helpful. Could you post an "hinv -vm" and a "serial all" for your R-Brick linked system? If you're not comfortable posting your serial numbers on-line, you could replace each of the last three or four characters with an 'x' without diminishing the value of the information.

Cool thanks... apparently the electricity company is out at my place working on the meter box... So I will have a look at it again when I get home... Also I have updated the wiki entry a little..

I used Mxxxxxx for L2 and cleared the Origin300s...
The router brick is a no go...

Code: Select all

1.25 serial clear
001r25:
INFO: command not supported on bricks that enforce security.
Mxxxxxxx-001-L2>


I am going to have to talk to sgi or figure something out for myself..

Here is a really crappy work around... :evil: :twisted:

unplug the USB on the router brick..
Power up the router brick at the back.
push the button on the front
Reconnect the USB cable at the back..
connect to the l1 on the router brick.
flash default a
reboot_l1
escape back to the l2
1.1 reset
1.2 reset
1.3 reset

....and...

Code: Select all

Logically..
The "Some explanation" section on the wiki entry goes someway as to my thought process at the time.
Basically conflict at power on -> start things individually, then reset, also I suspected the new firmware might to stop people doing things like this but the older firmware once you realize it exists is still selectable.

I can not change the router brick. If I need to power everything down or the UPS fails then I will have to go through the sequence again. I should "return" the licenses to SGI as well as some others I had in previous configurations of this machine, anyway I just commented out my legal valid licenses and cut and pasted some illegal "works anywhere" pirate ones a very long time member sent me on this very forum a few years ago... and anyway the code I am currently working on is only 10,000 lines... I might only add another couple of thousand lines when I use a new GUI library. I probably won't have to throw 12 CPUs at it for parallel builds until there is several multiples of size of code...

I could raise a support ticket about the router brick but I don't think they would be very amused, even if they did have a clue. The general response has been, oh thats pre-linux stuff, we will have to find someone who knows about it.

Wow that's interesting that it only checks on startup, that's quite an oversight (but great for us!!)...I guess that wouldn't fly in an enterprise environment though so they probably weren't too concerned....

I think you might actually have some luck with that...(hint, hint)

Rackable might be less anal-retentive than SGI was about these things. I can't help but think that more positive word of mouth about SGI would be a good thing, especially since it's close to free.

Congrats on the victory, Pymble :)

A very long shot - but it might be interesting to see how the R-Brick PROM and L1 controller exchange system serial number <SSN> information. The question will be how the firmware and PROM check the R-Brick's local system serial number.

While working out how the L1 and PROM identify the difference between an O350 and a Tezro rack system, bri3d and I discovered we could change the L1 system serial number prefix from the "M" the O350 uses to a "P" required by the Tezro rackmounted workstation <using an the L2 controller> to "change" the O350 into a Tezro. viewtopic.php?f=3&t=16721235

Admittedly the O350 didn't have serial security enforced, but might that mean it's possible to change the letter prefix of the local system serial number on the R-Brick without affecting the serial security check? Since the R-Brick and the O3x NUMAlink Module are so similar might the serial number prefix be the only difference <like switching the O350 to a Tezro by changing the serial number prefix>?

If you can change the serial number prefix without triggering the R-Brick's serial security, you could use the L2 controller to assign that "M" prefixed serial number to each of your O300s so they'd work with the B-Brick.

To find out you'd have to be willing to risk bricking some hardware.
    Start the L2 controller with nothing attached.
    Record the L2's current serial info <in case you'd like to restore it later>.
    Change the SSN in the L2 controller to the R-Brick's local system serial number - but change the "L" prefix to "M" <e.g. "serial set M1001241" - using your R-Brick's local serial number from an earlier post>
    Connect the R-Brick and see if will accept the M prefixed serial number.

If the R-Brick accepts the M prefix, leave that serial number in the L2 controller and use it to assign the number to each of your O300s.

If the R-Brick security won't allow a change to the letter prefix, an equally long shot might be to change on the the O300s to the "M" prefixed R-Brick serial number <while it's still in the L2> and try that as well <though I'd try it by starting everything from a cold boot>.

Another approach might be to try a different L1 controller in the R-Brick. It would appear from a google search for L1 part numbers that basic L1 hardware is shared across platforms - all of the ones I found were 030-1439-00x. Get one without the serial security set - say from a C-Brick. Install that into something besides the R-Brick and use the L2 controller to assign it the same serial number the R-Brick uses, but with an O300 friendly "M" prefix. Then use the L1 command "brick type r" to set the correct brick type <do this *last* - just in case a brick type of "r" auto-enables security>. Remove the newly configured L1 and install it into the R-Brick - if the L1 firmware is new enough to sense the presence of the R-brick and auto-enable serial security, hopefully it will lock in the now O300 friendly "M" serial.

I think I may have tried that during my R-Brick saga and I don't believe it works. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't try. :-)

Jesse - do you recall if you also tried setting the O300 serial number to "M<numeric part of the R-Brick serial number>", or a different L1 in the R-Brick?

I believe I tried it both ways, but my memory could be failing me. I think the Origin 300 just doesn't like the M prefix for whatever reason and I'm pretty sure you can't change the R brick number at all without the security code. At least using convention means. :-) Apparently the R brick also employs some sort of crypto algorithm to protect the serial number, so unfortunately it's probably not as simple as burning a new one into the chip that holds it. However...downgrading the R-Brick's L1 firmware is possible...theoretically if you could find an old enough version you might be able to disable the security altogether.
