A question about nPar

Hi all
I have setup an rp7410 system with two cells installed in it and configured cell 1 as genesis nPar and installed 11iv1 system on it.
Then I want to add cell 0 to the Partition and I issued the command below:
**************************************
Error: There are incompatible cells:
Global cell 0, cabinet 0, cell 0 - IODC version 24128 PDC major 17
Current IODC hversion is 24128 and PDC major number is 16.
**************************************
So what can I do now
Can you tell me in detail?
Thx in advance

Re: A question about nPar

Hi,

sounds like your cells have different firmware versions on it.
Logon to the MP and run

MP:CM> sysrev

to confirm.
Contact HP to get the firmware updated.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: A question about nPar

I'm sorry. I didn't make it clearly
I issued the command below:

parmodify -p0 -a0:base:y:ri

and I got the following errors:
**************************************
Error: There are incompatible cells:
Global cell 0, cabinet 0, cell 0 - IODC version 24128 PDC major 17
Current IODC hversion is 24128 and PDC major number is 16.

Re: A question about nPar

The answer is still the same!

Cell 1 is your currentr cell, so read the message as follows:
cell 0 - IODC version 24128 PDC major 17
cell 1 - IODC hversion24128 PDC major 16

You need to have them at the same PDC level

Re: A question about nPar

So how can I get the new firmware
Can it be free?
I didn't purchase the HP support service

Re: A question about nPar

If you run the "sysrev" command (and you should do that), you will see 2 lines like this:

CELL 0 : 2.002 1.000 1.001 2.004 17.009

The last column is the PDC version.
All values in one column have to be the same.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: A question about nPar

You will find the firmware here:

ftp://ftp.itrc.hp.com/firmware_patches/hp/cpu/PF_CKEYMAT0605.tar.gz

But make sure you read the documentation carefully and follow step by step!
Otherwise you may easy and seriously damage your system.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: A question about nPar

The major version number of the PDC firmware is different in cell 0 vs. cell 1. Apparently a different minor version number (16.xxx vs 16.yyy) might be acceptable, but a different major version (16.xxx vs 17.yyy) definitely isn't.

You would have to either upgrade the cell 1 or downgrade the cell 0. I'd recommend upgrading instead of downgrading unless there are specific reasons to do otherwise.

If you are not familiar with firmware upgrades on cell-structured servers, I'd recommend you open a support case and let HP engineer do it. A failed firmware upgrade can cause serious problems.

If you want to do it yourself, the instructions are within the firmware package, in the ReleaseNotes.pdf file. Read *all* the instructions and make sure you understand everything before starting the upgrade.

The firmware for rp7410 can be found here:
