Processor Upgrade rp4410

Hi all,
I have to upgrade two processors from 32mb Cache to 64mb Cache in rp4410.
From documentation I find that is needed to enter in Firmware Main Menu -> Service Menu and enter UPGRADE command. After restart and everything should be fine.
Is there any other configuration of patch that I should apply in the OS?



Thank you.

PA 8800 CPUs have a level 2 cache of 32MB, PA 8900 CPUs have 64 MB in level 2.

see

You need to purchase the cpus, install all needed patches and firmware, shutdown the system, swap the hardware and restart.

Hope this helps!

chapter "Processor Upgrade Procedure"

Re: Processor Upgrade rp4410

Regarding the UPGRADE command (also written in the manual posted by Robert-Jan):

If you have a dual core CPU with only one active CPU, you need to "buy" and activate the second core. You need to obtain a licence key, run UPGRADE and input the key.

This will enable the second core, if you only purchased a single-CPU system initially.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
