Re: CPU failure: reboot possible

It's a total of 8 dipswitches which can be found on the left side of the system board ( if you're facing the front of the system )
However, I just tried to find a document on ITRC and Google showing the correct settings but couldn't find one.
Maybe someone else on ITRC can provide a link or a document ?

Re: CPU failure: reboot possible

Also, what is the full text of the EMS Event that was notified in syslog.log? Either run the command given, or look in /var/opt/resmon/log/event.log to see it.

Re: CPU failure: reboot possible

Ok, I think the text in that event answers your question about rebooting. The CPU would be deallocated, but the others would still work, and the system should boot OK.

It's not the cause of the problem, but I would strongly recommend that you install a current version of the OnlineDiags. That message shows that A.26.00 is installed, which was the June 2001 release! The current release for 11.11 is A.57.00 (see http://www.docs.hp.com/en/diag/stm/stm_upd.htm#table for the currently supported versions).

If you don't have the CDs, you can download the current version from http://h20293.www2.hp.com/portal/swdepot/displayProductInfo.do?productNumber=B6191AAE

Re: CPU failure: reboot possible

Hi,

thanks for help.

Do you know, how many dip-switches must be configured by changing the cpu's from 360Mhz to 440Mhz?

Thanks in advance for you answer!

Re: CPU failure: reboot possible

Hi,
You may have a revA or RevB system Bd.
So if revA:
360Mhz:
SW1 ON, SW2 OFF, SW3 ON, SW4 OFF, SW5 ON
440Mhz:
SW1 ON, SW2 OFF, SW3 OFF, SW4 OFF, SW5 ON

If revB:
360Mhz:
SW1 ON, SW2 OFF, SW3 ON, SW4 ON, SW5 ON
440Mhz:
SW1 ON, SW2 OFF, SW3 OFF, SW4 ON, SW5 ON

As you can see, the 360Mhz SW settings are different for the revA & revB bds, so you can work out which system board you have.
HTH,

Re: CPU failure: reboot possible

ps,
the Switch Bank is located near to a Button Battery on the SYS Bd, near the CPU sockets
