Eh? Not sure what you mean here... Please elaborate (so I'm warned :).
What I DO know about the STOP-A is that it very often freezes (with the
stock kernels - I found a patch that fixes that) and you often can't do
a reboot correctly.
Doing a 'shutdown -r now' will work ONCE, but the second time the kernel
freezes and invoking STOP-A won't work. NOT even via serial which is the
only way for me to control the machine other than network.
Sometimes it hung when mounting /dev and trying to reboot didn't work
either... As said, there's a whole _BUNCH_ of problems with the B1k...
Most of them is fixed with a couple (five or six I think it was) external
patches ('hacks' as the SPARC developers/maintainer(s) refer to them as :).
