I got me a busted Ultra 2, symptoms are that the machine appears to
die, everything unresponsive. Power cycle fixed it a couple of times,
but increased in frequency where now it will seldom power up at all.
Most times now I hit the power button, the power LED doesn't come on,
power supply fan spins, CD light flashes, but nothing out ttya. When I
do get it to power up, it's ok for a few minutes, long enough to
printenv, then it dies.
Have stripped out all sbus cards and swapped out CPU for a spare, same
symptoms. I can probably invest a small amount of cash to get it going
again, so I'm after opinions on whether I should replace the
motherboard or the power supply first, or if there are any other
suggestions on where to look.
