Post by James E Kogle » Thu, 18 Oct 2001 05:26:42



I have an IBM 7248 system, i am curious what the clock speed is on it. I
am trying to buy a similar system
to run AIX 5.1 on. (or at least a system which will run AIX 5.1
sucessfully.

I am also looking for a 64 bit system, is the one i have a 64 bit
system, what is a cheep 64 bit system model
for me to buy?

modelname   IBM PPS Model 7248 (E) Machine
name                                      False
systemid    IBM72482608882         Hardware system
identifier                        False

Hi Jim,

this is a fragment of a shell script I use for collecting system parameters
(I found it somewere in the net)
It works not on all models!
May be you can find out the frequency by interupting the boot process and
going into the System Management Services.

The entry level model for 64 bit and AIX 5.1 is IMO RS/6000 44P Model 170.
Btw, new IBM systems are never cheap.

### check the frequency
### if frequency is given as the PS variable (prcessor speed)
FREQ=`lscfg -vp | grep PS | awk -F'[=,]' '/PS=/{print $2}'`
### if PS has 3 digits, thats the frequency
echo $FREQ | egrep -q '(^[0-9][0-9][0-9]$)'
if test "$?" = "0"
        then echo "Frequency:\t"$FREQ" MHz (found from lscfg -vp)"
        else
### sometimes PS is given hex in Hz
                echo $FREQ | egrep -q '(^00)' && \
                FREQ=`echo "ibase=16;${FREQ}/0F4240"|bc`
                if  test "$?" = "0"
                        then echo "Frequency:\t"$FREQ" MHz"
### if PS couldn't be found, look in your own base

1. Masquerade Sparc machine type.

I have a Vxfs and VxVM running on a Ultra-Sparc SUNW,Ultra-250. Due to the
VxVM licence key is valid on this machine only (License key must to have
match the hostid and machine type.) So I can't install VxVM on another Sparc
machine (SUNW,Ultra-5_10). Up here,That's what I wanna do.  Then I found a
program that can masquerade the hostid to any hostid I wanna set. But I have
no way to masquerade the "machine type". I wanna ask is there any programs
can fake the machine type as well (from Ultra-250 to Ultra-5-10)?
