SiliconGraphics O2
Three SGI O2 workstation computers. Note the variation in the labels. The left-most unit is driving the display image, Doom for SGI within the IRIX 6.5 operating system. Click image for more photos of this system.


SiliconGraphics Octane
The SGI Octane is often referred to as the O2's big brother. It has the same rounded footprint, but it's about 40% larger and more powerful. This system boots, but I am missing a hard drive sled. Click image for more photos of this system.


SiliconGraphics Indy
Pictured above is the SGI Indy, running IRIX 5.3. Click image for more photos of this system.


SiliconGraphics Indigo 2 IMPACT 10000
A close-up of the Indigo2 IMPACT 10000 badge. This system was in pretty bad shape when I got it but I was able to clean it up. I need to put in a new fan, the video card will overheat after an hour of use. Click image for more photos of this system.

Here is a screen shot of the steps I took to reset the user passwords. The pwconv command uses the /etc/passwd file to generate a new password shadow file (/etc/shadow). Note you have to delete the file first. Click image for larger view.


I reviewed the following page when setting up the networking for these systems:
