I'm look for one then. I'm going to make cycbuffs for the server, so
retention will be sucky until I get this fixed.
I have a second Sparc5 (70) MHtz with the same problem and no memory.
If anyone has two SCSI cards and wants a barebones SS5 in trade, or if
anyone wants a second ethernet card (also MII connection) for the scsi
card, let me know.
I assume since the LX is happy with the drive, the problem is either
that the Sparc5 is fussier about its cables and termination, or
there's a dead fuse (I understand this isn't reparable in the SS5
other than by getting the scsi card).
