  1. Request for advise

    Hello,

    Is this worth someone picking it up or is it food for the dump?

    SUN SPARC Server 670MP with the following:

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    BOARD #1:
    (2) Boards on risers: marked "CYM 6002K Ross Technology" --- each with 2
    chips marked "ATT7C157M-20 9147K" and 6 chips with heat sinks.

    (32) Memory sticks: 16 are marked "Samsung KMM594000B-8 93110 SEC
    16 are marked "NH4M09A0J-8 JAPAN 2415A07"

    In SBus 0 --- Ultra SCSI differential
    In SBus 1 --- Unknown: SCSI +?

    15 pin ethernet port
    keyboard port
    Serial A & B
    Switch norm-diagnostic

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    BOARD #2
    Dataram
    (64) memory sticks

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    Board #3 (was not pulled)
    Back shows: Status LEDs, diagnostic/norm switch, "IPI-2 Port" (50 pin?)

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    P/S
    +5v --- 150A
    -5.2v --- 15A
    +12v --- 15A
    +12v --- 15A/25A PK for 20 Sec.
    -12v --- 10A
    Total output not to exceed 925W

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    50? pin port above boards (IPI-1?)

    Front panel reveals tape drive, CD and open bay with (SCSI?) cable dangling
    in back.

    QUESTION: Is this worth anything to anybody or is it food for the dump?

    If you want advise on a telescope, I can answer any of your questions. But I
    know nothing about SUN systems. I am told all the boards etc are working but
    have no way to verify. It is free to anyone who can pick it up (Tacoma, WA
    USA) and put it to use.

    Would someone let me know if this is worth anything

    As a museum piece it might be of interest. As a piece of
    computational equipment, I'd pass it up.
