T520 Processor not available


I have a T520 machine with 8 processors.
I had it in charge since two years ago, and had been working fine, until a sudden crash, after which only reports 7 processors.
I use the SP commands to display the logs, and found this
New System Status : FAULT : hex display = 16fc

Does exist any procedure to claim the lost processor or to tag it as "dead"?

What is not backed up, it not exists

Hello Jose,
I would call into HP support and have them run full diagnostics on the cpu and have it replaced if necessary. Surprisngly your box has not HPMC'd and panic'd.

Re: T520 Processor not available

Well, I'm not real experienced with the SP - it is "ancient" anymore after all, but I believe it will still deallocate the CPU & allow the system to come up. But with that ole' beast you may *need* all 8, huh? Problem could be is that it's CPU 0 or the monarch CPU which is the mandatory boot CPU. All you should need to do is pull it & put another in it's slot, I'd think.
You know you can get a fairly well populated K-class on ebay for only several hundred $, so I don't think you should pay very much for a T520 CPU....

My 2 cents,
