Hi Nekochan

Picked up one of these disk array's some time ago (http://www.unixsurplus.com/product/sgi- ... -jbod-good); and have it working for a while now, but am a bit curious if anyone has any idea what interesting options lurk inside the console port. I've tried the usual 9600-> 19200 bps without any luck (not even any characters on power up).

Anyone have any insight to see what's in there?

Google hasn't turned up much but some press release info; and of recently some members from HardForum have picked up some; but haven't been successful yet in getting anything either.

SGI's page is less than helpful; offering lots of stuff but what im looking for: closest was under TPSSM (http://techpubs.sgi.com/library/tpl/cgi ... /ch02.html) .


Also: Not sure if this is in the right area; please correct me / this if wrong

thanks

Jonathan

Looks like you need to issue a ctrl-break in order for the enclosure to respond:

Hmm, this isn't for the exact same model I have... maybe posting the link was causing confusion...sorry!.... I've tried sending break doesn't seem to work either. I am not sure about the pinout, and can't find any reference, but I've tried my serial cable which was working with the origin 300.... still no love.

Any other ideas?

thanks

Jonathan

Only other suggestion I can offer is to ignore the serial port. If it's a JBOD shelf, then there's generally nothing to configure. If it's a RAID shelf, then you pretty much _have_ to talk to it to configure the RAID volumes, but there's very little that a JBOD shelf can offer.

Ok, thanks for the help - it was more just a curosity thing, as to what options / stats are available in there :D.
