John and Mike,

I'm in the process of rebooting the sunray.  I got a call from Nancy and
email from Mary.  I couldn't log on at any of the sunrays.  On the sunray
console, there was a message indicating that swap was full.  The machine
was in bad shape, I could do very little other than reboot.  However, I
did do df -k with the following results:

root at sunray # df -k

I also did a .version at the ok (OBP) prompt to check versions of the
boot PROMs on our system boards.  It listed three boards in slots (?)
1, 7, and 9.  I didn't want to stop the reboot to write down the details,
but the versions were something like:

board 1 version 1.1.xx
board 7 version 3.2.26
board 9 version 3.2.29

Clearly one of the boards has an PROM version that is way out of date.
I did note from a quick search that improperly flash updating EPROMs
can void waranties.  We better get Sun out here to fix this one.
