Re: Enable MP/SCSI board on rp7405

Hi Andrea,

the MP/SCSI board consists of two functions on one board. The MP (Management Processor) and the SCSI ( Core I/O) function.

1.) MP
There is only one MP active in the rp7405 (the master MP, lower one). The 2nd MP is not used.

2.) SCSI / Core IO
The SCSI function does only work if a cellboard is connected to the MP/SCSI card.
=> You need 2 cellboards if you want to use both Core IOs.

I hope this helps
