rp7410 Cell board firmware

I am trying to add an additional cell board to my rp7410. Both boards have 2 gb memory and 2 875MHz cpu. When I boot with both cells the system fails to boot with an error reporting a mismatch between the firmware of the cell boards. Both cells will boot independently. How do I update the cell board frimware? thanks.

Re: rp7410 Cell board firmware

Locate the firmware budle on hp.com and read the release notes carefully!
Doing a wrong step (not following the instructions) may destroy your server!

Hope this helps!

Re: rp7410 Cell board firmware

Perahps you have this figured out by now....

 

>  selftest see's only cell 1.

 

So you mean in the VFP view?   If so then only one cell may be configured into the partition.

 

Run MP:CM> CP to view what cells are configured.  Does the partition boot?  Does the OS boot? Use parmodify from the OS to add a cell.
