It looks like a lower-end VAXstation 3100. Compare it to the board in my
Infoserver 150VXT, which is a MicroVAX 3100 model 10:

Those machines have a single on-board SCSI channel (the wide connector
middle rear) but you need the proprietary cable to plug anything in. The
console connector is the one nearest the thin ethernet port and halt
switch - the four ports are labelled 0,1,3,2 with 2 being the DB25 full
modem socket.
Going from memory the 2 sockets furthest away from the back panel are for a
framebuffer card and extra memory and one of the back ones next to the SCSI
connector were for the 2nd SCSI card for external devices. Can't remember
what the other one was for, maybe a synch comms board?

Can't help with the power pinouts right now.....
