  1. FA: MicroVAX 3100-30 Parts Machine NR

    Folks,

    I just posted my first auction on eBay. Search for "Microvax" - not many
    hits these days. The URL is too long to post here. This box complains
    about an unexpected interrupt during the POST and then won't boot. Maybe
    someone can fix it, I'm not going to mess with it.

    I have three more I'll be posting soon. None of them have any disks
    (that's how I got them). One's another "parts machine" and two more will
    boot if I hook up an RRD42 to them. Still have another six(6) units to
    evaluate before I prepare them in TurboLister.

    I'm just selling these for the shipping cost; so, mention that you saw
    this post in the newsgroup if you're the winner, and I'll credit the
    $9.99 Buy-It-Now price to the shipping charges. Otherwise, it's a 7-day
    auction ending next Saturday around 20:00:00 or so CDT (18:00:00 PDT).

    Aw, WTH - Here's the URL... (sorry if it wraps)
    http://cgi.ebay.com/MicroVAX-3100-30...QQcmdZViewItem

    P.S.:
    The RRD42 is a John Wisniewski legacy: have gave it to me at DECUS one
    year. We miss you, John...

    At which length is the URL too long for you?

    So far I have four of them. One with 4MB, three with 8MB. Still have
    two(2) more units to check out, and one more DOA.

    BTW: I also have an InfoServer-100 with two RRD42s in it. Dunno how to
    go about testing that, but I'll do what I can and see what I come up
    with. Any advice would be welcome.

    To test a InfoServer 100 do this
    Just like the VAX plug the cable into the MMJ port next to the serial
    port
    Just like the VAX it will count down. Since its not connected to your
    network
    you will get the >>>. Do a show device.
    More then likely you will have either a RZ23/24 drive
    check for this
    BFLG D0000000
    Halt 2
    boot device dka100,dka200 (the 2 RDD42)
    the RZ2X will be DKA0
    If everything is okay then just type
    >>>B dka0

    If the drive has the Infoserver software installed it will come up.If
    the Infoserver ask for a
    password the default password is ESS (uppper or lower)
    hope this helps
    ps
    I still use 5 InfoServers
