L1000 server question

We are in the process of upgrading firmware on our L1000 Server. The document for patch PF_CRHW4139 strictly states this patch is ONLY for L1000A, L1000B, L2000A and L2000B servers. I have not been able to confirm via the s/n and I can not find a Model number on the server.

Can someone confirm that there was never a L1000C or D etc...?
Or locate the model number on the Server?
This is one of the first L-boxes shipped.

Thanks in advance...

Hi Bill,

I'm fairly certain that there was never a "C" or "D" model L1000.
I think the A/B designation denotes the GSP level/board type in the system.

That *should* be the proper FW for your system.

Re: L1000 server question

The GSP should tell you whether it is the A or B version server.
There was never a C or D version.
You might also look to upgrade your GSP firmware as well. A CE will have to do this part.
Anyone for a Mutiny ?

Re: L1000 server question

On L class boxes the part number of the server is printed on the plastic case.

Go look at the box, get the part number and search for it here:


This will get you the information you need.

Re: L1000 server question


Its down to the P/N printed on your server chassis - the answer is if you have:

A5576A = its the "A" version
A5576B = its the "B" version

The "A" came first and took the 360 & 44MHz CPU's - then the "B" version came along and took the 550MHz - then it went to the RP5400 and from there on in it even more complicated!

Re: L1000 server question

Thanks Gang,

Think I have confirmed it is an A or B, and that it is safe for me to install the new firmware.

Regarding the location of the model number.
The only plastic is the front door panel. Where it has HP9000 and L1000 on it. But that is all I have found on either side of the plastic door panel. Nor have I found any other plastic to check out.

This is an very early model of the L1000, wonder if the model tag was over looked?
Is that possible?
