Console Cable for Netra X1 and Cobalt RaQ4

Where can I obtain the console cable(s) for my newly purchased Netra X1 and
Cobalt RaQ4 servers? It will be a DB-9 to RJ-45 connection. Will one cable
work or is two separate ones needed? Thanks

THe Netra X1 will use the standard Sun cabling, which they copied
Cisco on, so your cheapest/quickest/easiest route is to probably buy a
Cisco console cable kit off eBay.

The RaQ4 is something altogether different. Did they have consoles?
I seem to remember having to do anything and everything through the
front panel, including any re-imaging steps.

Even though Sun bought Cobalt, I don't think a whole lot of Sun admin
types know anything about Cobalts..
You'll probably want to look around for the bluequartz forums.
