Pretty good start in one go!

Unread postby bushnrvn » Sun Oct 15, 2017 10:46 am

After having a functioning Octane collecting dust for the past couple of years, I met someone that was looking to offload "some old SGI stuff." I was explicitly told it was going to the dump if I didn't take it, so here we are.

Needs some serious TLC, but I am excited to get these up and running.

Looks like at least one of the Indys boots to the monitor over serial, but its looking for a non-existent web server. That might be on of the Origin 200s? The previous owner gave some half-remembered details about the way this was all setup in the past, but as you can see, its been salvaged and parted out in places.

Exciting.

Nice collection, with lots of drive sleds. Those will come in handy.

Looks sad to see a lovely Indigo2 buried under a pile of bits like that, but hope you can get the stuff working nicely!

Yeah, honestly I didn't realize what I was picking up - over the weekend I've found focus and I've done some research. That Indigo2 is definitely the star of the bunch. One of the Indys boots to PROM over serial (I currently lack a SOG monitor), the other fails to boot to PROM.

I've not turned on the Origins yet. I have a feeling that's going to be a whole ...thing.

Judging by the stuff piled on top of the Indys in your photo, it looks like you have one Origin 200 (server) and one Origin Vault (disk enclosure with no CPUs or memory). Keep that in mind when setting them up!
