I inherited a w2100z and installed OpenSolaris on it. The OS only reports 1 CPU in psrinfo. It came with 2 2GB memory sticks and I moved them to DIMM slotts 3 and 4. Why is only 1 CPU reported? Does the other CPU need a pair of DIMMs installed on the mezzanine? Thanks.
Hello, Sun has driver & test cd for download
are these downloads still free or is a service contract required ?
At least firmware patches (e.g. OBP/POST) for SPARC systems now require a service contract.
I just bought some ram today... I can't wait to see how this machine stacks up against the Sun X4150s and M4000s we have at work. I know it won't hold a candle to them but it should be interesting to see.
It would be nice to pick a pair of 285 processors in the future but I read about some bugs in another post and they are scarring me away from the dual cores just a little bit. Guess I'll have to do some more research on the problems.
I have been trying to download the latest bios patch but it is hard to find. The link to bios patches from the system handbook page takes you directly to the Oracle homepage now. I am pretty sure that we have a valid support contract at work for those other servers I mentioned. Maybe our person who knows about our contract will be able to get it for me?
