Just for completeness's sake:
Also(?) this jumper toggles a flag in the configuration register
(i think its official name is "server flag") which is checked by
some VAX/VMS software in order to decide which and how many licenses
you need. This flag is used by NetBSD only to decide which string to
diplay, "MicroVAX 2000" or "VAXstation 2000"
