       Warning: Inventory table ID value is 0. Check Midplane NIC


  • Chip 1: Dallas DS 1982
    • It's called the System Identification Module and it's actually a DALLAS DS1982 "iButton" EEPROM which contains the system ID number.

  • Also known as System Identification Number in techpub guides.
  • Can not transfer a NIC from an Octane into a Fuel.
  • In SGI Terms a NIC is a 'Number In Can'. Its looks like a battery but it contains the systemid. The Origin2000 have the same and you can see it when you remove the MSC.
