SD3200 , adding a new cell to a partition old icod issues



We have and old SD3200, Because of our needs, we are removing a cell from a partition and adding it to another partition:


                        CPU     Memory                                Use
                        OK/     (GB)                          Core    On
Hardware   Actual       Deconf/ OK/                           Cell    Next Par
Location   Usage        Max     Deconf    Connected To        Capable Boot Num

cab0,cell7 active base  4/0/4   10.0/ 0.0 cab8,bay0,chassis3  yes     yes  1


We are removing cell6(and it's iochassis) from partition 0 and adding it to partition 1


My concern is icod/icap related, both servers have hpux 11.11, with a very old icod version:


/> swlist -l bundle | grep -i icod
  B9073AA        B.05.00        HP-UX iCOD-purchase (Instant Capacity on Demand - purchase)


partition 0, has license for all the cpus in cell6:


root@partition0:/> icod_stat

Version:                   5.0
Contract type:             iCOD-purchase
License applied:           yes

Hostname:                  partition 0
DNS domain name:           partition 0

Will I find any problem activating cpus on cell6, when I add cell 6 to partition 1 ??, I don't have support/contact nor nothing similar with HP anymore.


I would like to know how this old icod/license works, and if there is a way to now(before adding a cell to the partition) if it has icod/icap cpus.


Thanks in advanced

Windows?, no thanks

icod gave no problems, added the cell, the cpus where icod inactive, activated them with no problems with icod_modify -a 4
