Mylex DAC 960 failed. (May be problem with local Mylex unit, as the status of the test unit was questionable) Use Diamond SpeedStar Pro, not WG-1000. Installation Comments: This system installs and runs Solaris 2.4 okay, but one must make sure three conditions are met: 1. Do not try to use the SoundBlaster Pro/2 card. The Creative Technologies SoundBlaster SCSI 16 has worked in other Wyse systems that showed similar (hung card) problems, so that might work here. 2. To date, all attempts to test this system with a Mylex DAC 960 with RAID have failed. The DPT RAID worked with the Model 665, which is similar, so that may work if RAID is required. However, the Mylex DAC 960 supplied for testing was in questionable condition, so we wish to retest at some point with a new Mylex unit. 3. The Diamond SpeedStar Pro board, which Wyse ships, works fine, but the WG-1000, with the Cirrus Logic GD542x chip, doesn't. Go figure, but don't use this board with OpenWindows.. Certification Comments: Once you thread the configuration/installation needle described above, this system runs Solaris 2.4 fine. It does, however, display the floppy bug. Please note that the results files included with this summary come from many different runs and a different configuration, so they do not indicate the true status of the tests.
