A relatively new machine to the collection
- E4000 Chassis
- 4x CPU Cards
- 2x I/O Card
- 1x PCI Expansion Card – not yet working
- Sun Microsystems Solaris 8
- SCSI2SD – 8Gig card
So the first thing I had to do with this machine was to do the NVRAM battery hacks on no less than 8 boards.
I then had to replace 1 failed and another failing power supply.
I have mounted the SCSI2SD where the tape drive would normally sit. This I think is better than external disk packs or wasting a slot with the disk card.
here is the rear of the machine before it was put in the rack
