RP7420 Processor upgrade

Could you please clarify me the following?

If I want to add one more dual core PA-8800 1GHz processor on a 7420 server (Physical chip and no ICAP. ) should I add any thing other than the following part no. We are adding the operating system licenses. I want to know whether we have to add any other part no to activate the additional cores.

Thanks and regards
