SS_CONFIG

Is that the same for all HP9000 servers? Is this info (SWID) stored on the PAL chip in the K4x0? Does it also affect the Smart Storage Enclosure?

TIA

Re: SS_CONFIG

I cannot tell you if it affects Smart Storage Enclosure or not.

I believe SS_CONFIG can be used to change the model number and also to set the SWID.

SPU ID is used by some vendors to link the software license to a specific node. SPU ID is basically derived from the CPU on the system.So, if you change the motherboard , in order not to break the software licenses installed in your system, you need to run SS_CONFIG and set the SWID.

# /opt/ifor/ls/bin/i4target -v

This will tell you the SPU ID.

SS_CONFIG is a restricted utility that only an HP CE has access to run. You will need to contact HP Hardware Support for help.

Re: SS_CONFIG

I am aware of the restriction HP has placed on this utility. I am looking to see where in my environment I may run into this problem that requires me to call HP service for them to work their magic...

I thought I remembered something where replacing a component of the SMART Storage Array caused me to lose access to all the data on it... maybe it was firmware. Hmmm.

I also have a K460 that will need systemboard replacement and was wondering if just the PAL could be moved or if HP needs to come to change the SWID.
