HP Blade system sees wrong mezzanine slot

Hi,

I have a problem with one HP Blade BL465c G1 in a Blade 3000c enclosure.

The problem is that the blade system sees the wrong mezzanine slot. The system sees slot 2 and not mezzanine slot 1.
The mezzanine slot 2 is empty. So my port mapping is wrong.
All the other blade systems have no problem.
I have tried to put the blade in another bay, but that didn't help.

So how can i reset that blade system so that he sees the correct mezzanine slot 1?

Greets,

Jeroen

Hi!

Have you tried to reset the Onboard Administrator card?

Try also booting from a firmware update CD and running a firmware update.
That might reset it.

Then i would think it's a Hardware error if you have the latest firmware and have reseted the Server, ILO and OA Card.

Either the moterboard or the mezz card in slot 1 or it's an unsupported mezz card

Jeroen,

If you can email me the c3000 inventory report (not settings), I can take a look. What blade bay # is it?

Re: HP Blade system sees wrong mezzanine slot

Your OA fw is only 2.04, so this is certainly a problem. Since the blade servers themselves are ok at BIOS May 2008 & iLO2 fw 1.61, update from:

2.04 > 2.10 >2.32

and see if blade #6 now reports the NC373m in the correct slot.
