HP9000/800/L2000-44 additional LAN/SCSI card

Hello all,
we have an old Server L2000-44 (rp5450) running with HPUX B11.00.
There are the standard IO cards installed
- A5191-60011 ( LAN/SCSI in slot 1 )
- A5191-60012 ( GSP in slot 2 )

It is possible to install a 2nd card A5191-60011 (LAN/SCSI card) in a free slot?
Which slot is the best?
We will only use the network card to get the backup lan separated from user lan.

No it is not. You are better off installing a B5509BA lan card

hi,

you could use a b5509aa/ba but that would only give you a single lan port. A5230A is actually the proper part number for the same card for the servers though.

or A5838A is a dual port lan/scsi combination card

all the supported interfaces are here

The fakt is, this is an old server and the system must be available from now 1 year.
The customer will not spend much mony for the last time of server use.
I get the LAN/SCSI card (A5191-60011) from an old unused server ( same server type as target server ). So we will have only to pay the installation.

This question was because I didn't found any documentation at the net regarding multiple installation and support of this card types. Only for other PCI cards.

hi,

I believe only one of those cards is supported in the server, and you will most likely get errors on the system/gsp if more than one is installed.

try it and see, but the cost of downtime may be more than another used lan card from a reseller near you.
