Adding CPU's to RP7420

I currently have and rp7420 with 6 CPU's and want to add 2 additional CPU's for a total of 8. What is necessary for the upgrade other than installing the CPU's. Is there something that has to be done to make the system see the additonal CPU's?

Just install 2 CPUs of the same type.

Hope this helps!

Re: Adding CPU's to RP7420

df command in MP can be used to identify the components installed.

PS command will give correct details only afer OS is up and running.

Once os is running (HPUX) you can verify details via ioscan or SAM utility from OS.

None of these commands show the new processors. HP Support says I need to run CPUCONFIG at the BCH to turn on the processor.

From boot menu, what does "in all" show you?

Did you connect power to the cpu modules?

Hope this helps!

Re: Adding CPU's to RP7420

I can't find that out. The server is up and I can't reboot it.

Re: Adding CPU's to RP7420

OK, but you can go to MP and run "PS" and "DF" and post the output (or better attach due to format).

Hope this helps!

Re: Adding CPU's to RP7420

OK, you have 1 module in slot 0 on cell0, 2 modules in cell1 in slots 0 and 2.

This looks good.

From "DF" command please use "D" (dump).


>> HW status for Cell 1 : FAILURE DETECTED

Need to find out what this is.


Please attach a "PS" for the cabinet ("t").



The load order for CPU modules is 0,2,1,3 - so where did you add the new modules?

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
