Since a long time I would like to have a BA123 Case as the space in a BA23 is limited and it’s each time a bit tricky to thread in/out the cards and cables.
In my last Haul I have got these nice equipped MicroVAXII in BA123.
Unfortunately the system was damaged by water, ontop to the usual NiCd damage, which has done great work.
I have spend many hours to clean the system, to repair the fans, and to neutralize the acid.
System says hello and lives again. It’s not a beauty as the damage was too much, but it’s running and passing the MDM diagnostics.
