Mike and Bill:
I've fixed the green newt problem on those 3 machines and now know the magic
incantations required to do that on a Sunray-by-Sunray basis.
It is basically a 3 step process ... although we could probably write a short
script to mostly automate this.
1. We need the 6-character IP address of the Sunray showing the green newt.
To get this, hold the 3 "sound keys" on the Sunray keyboard simultaneously.
(The three sound keys are just to the left of the "crescent moon" key on the
upper right side of the keyboard). This will show something like "F815CA" ...
that is a combination of 6 hexadecimal characters. These 6 characters are the
ethernet_address referred to below.
2. As root, on another sunray, on the console, or on a ssh window type:
basename `grep -li ethernet_address /var/opt/SUNWut/displays/*`
where ethernet_address is the 6 characters from above. Note: the ` is a "back
tick" ... This will display a 2-digit display number ... that will be referred
to as display_number in the following command.
3. To reset the session on that machine type:
/opt/SUNWut/sbin/utuser -k -xdisplay display_number.
This should reset the session ... although it won't know that it has been
reset until the next time that someone inserts a card.
Following is a list of all of the IP addresses for our Sunrays and where they
are located (well, as best as I can tell)
