Java Help

Dear All,

I've recently 'inherited' an old UNIX server from a company I do part time work for.

I know nothing of UNIX, or this machine unfortunately, so please bear with me, if this is in the wrong place, please move it accordingly.

Anyway, as far as I know, the machine is a UNISYS U 6000/500 Model 50. Serial # 303037793 (the handwriting on the delivery note is a little tatty)

I think it was built in or around 1994. I have some form of original configuaration pamphlet with it, so I'll post any relevant information I can see here:

3.5" 1.44meg FDD

On original manufacture, it says that it was fitted with 128meg of SIMMS RAM. It's a dual processor machine (twin P-90MHz).

EISA Slot E1: VGA board.

Says in this spec that it has three SCSI HDD's, one 1GB, and two 2GB drives.

That's about all I know about it, sorry if it's shadey. But as I said, I know nothing of UNIX systems, so that's about the best I can do.

I've had it boot up. It gets to a login screen thus far, but as I know nothing of the machine, I can't go into any further details.

If anyone could shed any further light on this model, whether you know anywhere where I could get rid of it possibly? I have no use with it, which is a shame, so I'd like it go to someone who might actually use it.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Many thanks in advance

CPU & Memory eBay

I auction most of my old gear on eBay. If you want to get rid of it, that is one of the best places. From what you describe, however, it is not worth much. Dual P-90s, EISA, 1994 technology is not something many people want. Sorry not to be more encouraging.
