As most people find, you have to get a new NVRAM chip or cannibalize your NVRAM chip and add a battery. I chose the second part as I have a soldering kit and a Dremel. I then booted up my SB100 to find that my operation had worked but my IDPROM contents are still invalid. I have tried a lot of other guides such as https://forums.irixnet.org/thread-219-post-10157.html#pid10157
, and others but I have yet to find a solution. Here is my machine's output on boot and I only took out the serial number:
>> (SUN LOGO) Sun Blade 100 (UltraSPARC-11e), Keyboard Present
>> OpenBoot 4.0, 1024 MB memory installed, Serial #XXXXXXXX
>> Ethernet address 0:3:ba:18:69:40, Host ID: 83188869.

Have you done a set-defaults, then reset-all, (or similar) at the obp
prompt ?. Host id is not that important, but you can enter the mac
address from obp. The first three hx bytes from Sun, then just think
up something for the remainder that doesn't conflict with anything
else on the subnet. There's a howto o the net to enter the mac address,
calculate the c/sum ad save to nvprom...
