I have had this SSA 114 (I think it was since it had 2G drives) working
well for a few years. As the 2G drives have died, I have replaced them
with 4 and 9G drives.
The last thing I did was to empty out drawer 3 entirely and fill drawer
1 with 4G drives and drawer 2 with 9G drives.
Now it won't power on, and still won't power on with just a few drives.
I didn't remember that any specific drives had to be present for it to
Some Googling has turned up the fact that these guys had power supply
problems, and I am wondering what the symptoms of a bad PS would be.
Right now, turning the power switch on makes the front panel display
light up briefly and go out. On the back, one light on the PS goes on
and stays on, and the other flashes briefly just like the front panel.
This has been a wonderful thing to have (along with a pair of Ultra
2s--thanks Lionel) for setting up and learning Sun cluster, and I really
don't have any type of replacement that will let me do that.
hehe. Interesting that Thunderbird spell check wants to replace
"Googling" with "Go ogling"
