Alright, armed with this info (mixing different io boards and all)
with my e5000 still up and running, I added a SOC+sbus board in slot3
(that's second from the top at the back of the exx00 series, with a
sbus-dual in slot 1.
Orange light as soon as I inserted the SOC+sbus. Ok, so I go back on
the xterm and cfgadm shows the board:
sysctrl0:slot3 soc+sbus disconnected unconfigured unknown
Alright, let's connect it:
# cfgadm -f -c connect sysctrl0:slot3
system will be temporarily suspended to connect a board: proceed (yes/no)?
sysctrl0:slot3 soc+sbus connected unconfigured ok
Board is good.
# cfgadm -f -c configure sysctrl0:slot3
sysctrl0:slot3 soc+sbus connected configured ok
And to recap:
clock board: 501-4286
sbus+dual IO board in slot 1: 501-4287
soc+sbus in slot 3: 501-4883
cpu/mem boards are a mix of 501-4882 and 501-4312 boards with the 250MHz
and I believe the centerplane is a 501-2978
So how do I get the 501-4883 to replace the 501-4287, that is the question...
I'm open to other suggestions.
