[rescue] Anyone using a Sun X4200 these days?

I have some X4100 M2 that came from an incredible eBay deal. Not maxed 
out in RAM, but still a passable ESXi host.

Keep in mind that the X4100 has 2x PCI-X and DDR RAM, but the X4100 M2 
has 2x PCIe-x8 and DDR2 RAM. Either machine maxes out at 32GB RAM. Not 
sure how common it is to find registered ECC DDR right now...

If you need to get rid of some full-height 10GigE equipment, I might be 
able to help. Intel/etc make some low-profile cards but they are not the 
cheapest thing ever.
