I dunno, what kind of JTAG stuff are you doing? :-) I'm talking about the
SPARCcenter 2000, not the LSI SC2000 (which pops up in Google as a popular
JTAG prototyping/debugging tool), in case there was any confusion...
I haven't found any on-line copies of the hardcopy docs I have, but
haven't searched very hard yet. The big difference between the JTAG
implementations is that the CS6400 requires that the cable be hooked up to
the SSP for normal functioning; if the SC2000/E control board detects that
the JTAG interface is connected, it drops all the CPUs into slave mode and
halts very early in POST - so on that machine it's only useful for factory
burn-in and diagnostics. But they mention that you could, in theory, use
the JTAG port to monitor and detect hardware faults without disturbing the
running OS, but that was never implemented.
