No luck and tried that before, a few times. What is strange is that it was fine while testing openindiana and BSD,
but failed after I reverted back to solaris 10 during the installation process. Ran all diag tests and both CPUs passed...
very strange...

I recall there was a way to clear all errors stored in the PROM

Thanks TBF :) but it worked for a short while and reverted back..... upon further investigation I discovered that the second cpu had cache errors.. so replaced both 900' with 1200's

Ah well the hardware is quite old and these things sadly happen. I have SGi hardware far more valuable that
I occasionally start up and and run for a few hours, may it be for some nostalgic work in maya or just fooling around :)
At least i can cart those Onyx2 desksides around... I feel sorry for folks trying to move racks around :P But I think someday I will have to upgrade my study and make room for old macs, sgi and sun gear
