I recently picked up a Sun 670/MP, and a spare cpu board, and it would be
really nifty if I could get them to both work at the same time. From talking
to Wise People, it would seem that I can't get them to work as one computer
with shared resources: is that correct? If I read the FAQ correctly, I am
talking about two fully populated (4cpu, 128 mb) 501-1899 boards, but I can't
find the number on the boards to confirm the model number.
If that is the case, I read in a different FAQ something about being able to
make them work as multiple independent computers. Unfortunately, all it says
about *how* to do this is it would be 'tricky'. This is from
http://www.sunhelp.org/faq/sunref2.html , "Miscellaneous Questions and
Answers" #9 . Does anyone have any information about how to do this?
I apologize if this is a common question. I tried looking through the
archives, but if there is a search feature, I couldn't find it.
