ICL DRS-6000


The DRS-6000 provides a pair of MBus slots, probably 40MHz ones.

Due to firmware and the I/O bus structures beyond the MBus, it does not run SunOS 4.x or Solaris, but runs an ICL multi-processor derivation of UNIX SVR4.2 called DRS/NX.

The standard DRS-6000 models are:

As I know so little about these systems, I cannot advise on firmware revisions needed for particular MBus modules, the set of workable MBus modules, or any other issues not covered above.
