Sun Microsystems Servers

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys, so I just scored 4 Sun Servers. 1x 1U Server, 1x 2U Server, 2x Tower Servers for $50 All I know is that one of them is, EN1SA (SunFire V210 1U) And the other rack server is the SunFire V240 2U.. I feel that this is a steal for $50, I want to know what your thoughts are on this.. I am going sunday to pick them up..

The V210 and V240's use Sun UltraSPARC IIIi processors, which aren't x86 so you couldn't run Windows on them, but they would be fun machines to mess around with if you can find a compatible OS(fairly certain there is a Sparc version of ubuntu, and I'm pretty sure OpenBSD is supported).

Yeah pretty much just getting them to slap (Hopefully) Ubuntu Server on it.. So he said that he doesn't have the keys for it (But it is unlocked) how would I go about getting another set of keys or making my own?
