I am looking for someone out there that has any knowledge on changing
the serial number on Origin R-Bricks. From what I understand, when you
have two two rack systems for example, with 4 r-bricks, each r-brick
has to have the same serial number in order to boot. I have a failed r-
brick currently, and need to find a way to replace the serial number
on the new one. SGI has not been able to help at all interestingly
enough. I you or someone you know is able to do this please advise.
This from a collegue who used to be a SGI field service rep:

The router board inside the R-Bricks must be programmed at the factory.
And are not interchangeable between systems on Origin 3000 series. SGI
wanted to discourage customers from merging different Origin 3000 together
without have to pay additional support.

I know because I tried. It'll cost $876.00 for a new router board.

Nope. There's just too many of us S.A.'s around. ;-)
