You don't find many Ultra 5's with 2 internal 80gb drives and SunPCI

1. FS: Sun Ultra 80 and Sun Ray 1g in the UK

2. Ultra 30, SUNPCI card (amd400mhz) Solaris 8 and SUNPCI 1.3

Hello,
I have purchased an Ultra 30 to replace my beloved Sparc 5 for a gain in
speed and the ability to use the SUNPCI card. I have scratch-loaded
Solaris 8 and installed SUNPCI 1.3. The installation terminates saying
that it does not detect the card and hints the Openboot Prom may not be
the correct version. I cannot find a "minimum OBP revision" for this
card anywhere on Sun's site or with a search engine.

When I run the SUNVTS "sunpcitest" with the -f flag I get the following
response

"Can not open device SunPCi Card, one instance may be already running"

Since the installation failed I know that one instance is not running,
and a cursory check with ps shows that this process is not running.

Both the system and the SUNPCI card were purchased used, and presently
both parties are pointing fingers at each other when I ask them to
assist/replace defective parts.

Do any of you know the Openboot PROM minimum version for this interface
card? Any other suggestions as to how to tell if its the PCI bus on the
Ultra 30 or the SUNPCI card that is misbehaving?

Thanks in advance,

Jeffrey Green
