Two. SRI-NIC and ISI-B.
A third root server ISI-F existed, but on June 12 1985 was
changed to a "test" server. All were located in California.
All were DECSystem-20/TOPS-20 mainframes running JEEVES.
On October 31, 1985 (Halloween) the first BIND root server was
announced at BRL-AOS (US east coast).
