SunBlade 2000

807557 Member Posts: 35,835
Hi Everyone,

I recently bought a used SunBlade 2000 for about $400.

When I received it, it looks to be in fine condition, it's definitely a SunBlade 2000 chassis, and it boots up normally, etc.

The only odd thing is that when it's POST'ing, it says:

SUNW,Sun-Blade-1000 (2 X UltraSPARC-III+) , Keyboard Present

....shouldn't it say "Sun-Blade-2000" ....?? How can I tell if the motherboard has been changed out with a Blade 1000?

    the easiest way would be to check the part number on the motherboard...
    the SB1000 and SB2000 share motherboards...

    here is the link to the service manual... never bothered with these boxes, maybe it will say
    what the differences are...


    oh, and if you want, you could change the name back to sb2000 by stopping at the splash screen (Stop + A keys) and type help... you may have to do some research....

    have fun
