Never heard of that one... whats the actual model? Something like an AlphaPC
DP264 or Alpha Workstation or perhaps something like ES40...Will L G

DiskMan a rit :


It's a 4U F720 filer, it's based on a 450MHz Alph with PC 32 and 64 bits
PCI slots and PC100 ECC. The main board is rebranded netapp but I think
it is a "standard" DEC board (model ????)

Hate to say it but it doesn't look like anything other than the standard OEM
supports it. Did a little looking around and looks like you may be stuck
with a pretty expensive 'solution'. Sorry about that. Someone else may be
able to come up with something that works for ya... Will L G
