Hmmm. I supported the Eagles for the 8 years I was at
remember anything about issues mixing with CDC on the same cables. Come to
that, I was at MPI before Fujitsu and don't remember any problems with
mixing there either. Of course, the Eagle simply ran forever. I visited a
couple that hadn't been powered down in 5 years - just running along quietly
in the background.
MANY years ago, I wanted to get rid of a Sun 3 server with two Eagles. Someone
from Berkeley came down and loaded the 7' rack into
the back of his JEEP. It stuck
out from the back so far that the rack fell out about
a block from my house (I
heard the crash when it hit the road).
We helped him put it back in and gave him some rope to tie it in place.
Years later, I ran into him, and other than the rack rails having bent back a
few inches from the impact, it ran fine..
Heads were locked, of course..
