About the ability to run more than one Symbolics from a Sun, as I
remember it the UX400 needs only a single slot in a Sun, and the
Sparc 330 (the minimal Sparcstation taking symbolics boards) has three
slots that it can go in. Does this mean: 1 x SPARCstation 330, 2 x
additional 300+Mb disks, 2 Xterminals, 3 Symbolics UX400S and software
YIELDS three near-top-end Symbolics? Do we need more than ethernet
port to make this work effectively?
I think this is so. One problem might be the contention for the Sun
processor and disk controller time, since all the UX400S's must go
through the host Sun for I/O to the network and disks.
