Even though it’s still at Chad’s house, I need help naming my new Sun Enterprise 420R server. This is what one looks like:
Except mine is missing the purple and gray faceplates. My other Sun box (my Ultra60) is named UglyDuckling. My 4U Linux server is named dustpuppy. So any name works for me. Winner gets a coffee on me.
UPDATE: After Reading the Fine Manual, I found that these machines don’t normally ship with a video card so I won’t order one. The normal way of installing an OS on one of these is via serial console. Since I don’t have a Sun ASCII Terminal I can connect, I’ll be using a tip connection from my Ultra60. But to do that, I’ll need a Serial Null Modem Cable. They’re $0.99 at Amazon. So I’d be happy to purchase the Sun E420R Faceplate that Chad found on Ebay. Except I still don’t have an Ebay or PayPal account.
