I found that the same (outlook) DEFTA cards appeal differently.
/// DEC3000/300 ///
fta0 at tc0 slot 0 offset 0x0: DEC DEFTA TC FDDI SAS Controller
fta0: FDDI address 08:00:2b:a3:64:84, FW=3.01, HW=0, SMT V7.2
fta0: FDDI Port = S (PMD = ANSI Multi-Mode)
/// Personal DECstation ///
fta0 at tc0 slot 1 offset 0x0: DEC DEFTA TC FDDI SAS Controller
fta0: FDDI address 08:00:2b:a3:5d:ea, FW= 1.1, HW=2, SMT V7.2
fta0: FDDI Port = S (PMD = ANSI Single-Mode Type 1)
Um, firmware versions are not identical. Need FW update, Matt?
