Onyx2 Skins

Unread postby Skysearcher » Thu Apr 19, 2012 7:50 am

Hi all,

Now that my naked Onyx2 is up and running i want to give it some more clothes ;-)
It looks better and it is also better for the airflow.

My Onyx2 came mounted in a flightcase, the flightcase was removed.

Anybody selling skins for my Onyx2?

Cheers,

Ron

Rack or Deskside?

Looks like a rackmounted deskside to me. In which case he needs a wheelbase as well.

It's doable, but I think it's more likely you'll find a gutted or broken Onyx2 deskside somewhere. I'll let you know if I stumble upon something.

Kudos to you for getting the Onyx2 up and running as your first Onyx2. Most people start easier, with an Indy (or a Fuel these days, maybe)

PS: this thing was in a flightcase, once? I hope you've got it on blocks now, the airflow is downwards through the chassis.
Now this is a deep dark secret, so everybody keep it quiet :)
It turns out that when reset, the WD33C93 defaults to a SCSI ID of 0, and it was simpler to leave it that way... -- Dave Olson, in comp.sys.sgi
