Booting Ultra 5 from external SCSI
my system is an ultra 5 with a 360 MHz CPU and 512 MB RAM.
Getting frequent ide resets (specially under load) from the builtin ide
drive/controller I'd like to use my external SCSI disk as boot and root
device. SCSI adaptor and disk have been initially used under Solaris
(5.8 and 5.9) and therefore are known to be OBP aware.
Is anybody running such a configuration ?
If so, are there any special requirements concerning the
* disk partitioning
* openprom settings
* silo configuration
The FAQs I've found a more related to the older (sbus) systems though
the hardware of the ultra 5 is more 'pc-like'.
