Re: rp4440 server fru list

From MP you can use

DF : Display FRU Information

or from hp-ux

# echo "sel dev all;info;wait;il"|cstm

Also check with

http://partsurfer.hp.com

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: rp4440 server fru list

Hi Smatador

If we need to issue MP > DF command, do we need downtime for the server?

Re: rp4440 server fru list

Hi Tosten

How can we use partsurf to get the part information(part number and qty) of the running server?

Re: rp4440 server fru list

hi,

NO, you do not need downtime to use the MP and DF commands, you just mearly have to be able to access it, over lan or on the local console.

If you do it in HPUX like Torsten suggested you could send this to file or print it out for future reference.

I also do not think Torsten meant you could check partsurfer for your running server? Just so that you could you this as a reference for part numbers for your server.

Yes Andrew, of course.

The question is, why would somebody want to get a fru list. Maybe to compare what the server has and what it could have ... e.g. a bigger memory carrier or a duplex scsi board option or whatever - I don't know.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: rp4440 server fru list

Hi All

I want to get this information because we are going to activate the support contract with HP. According to HP, they need the BOM list in order to generate the quote.But this BOM is misplaced and also we can't shutdown the server in order to get the BOM by opening the server cover.

Hence I want to get those details without shutting down the server.
