The one problem I have with my V210s is that they tend to shut down
overnight in winter, because my rack is in an unheated deckhouse and
they drop below their 50C internal low-temperature limit.

I have Ethernet ALOM on both of mine, but only one of them has
ssh-to-ALOM enabled.  The other, I have to telnet, iirc (or of course
serial-console).  They're both shut down right now pending additional
RAM and reinstall, to get them as close as possible to identical so I
can build a proper a DB test cluster.

Speaking of which ...  anyone have any surplus V210 RAM lying around
that you'd like to turn into a few bucks plus shipping?  1GB modules
would be great, but 512MB would be fine.  I'd like to get 4-8GB into
each one.
