Upgrade from K260 to K460

Hi

Our company have a K260 server but they want to upgrade it to a K460. I have found a document mentioning upgrading from K360 - K460 but not a K260 - K460.. Is this posibile ? I have checked all the i/o boards,PSU,Mmemory,CPU etc.. and they all will work on a K460.. They only difference is the systemboard.. Does this mean that all i need to chance is the systemboard to upgrade this?? Or is there more to it ?

Any Help would be gratefull

Will

Re: Upgrade from K260 to K460

The K460 is very similar to the K260, but it has more (activated) I/O slots and can have more memory (due to a second memory extender).

But do you reallay want to "upgrade" an oldtimer to another oldtimer?

Many companies are already about to discard the successors of these systems.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

The system board is all the hardware you need to upgrade. The system board you need for the upgrade is A3284-69505 or A3284-60005 average price is $125.00. I looked it up and below is the info from HP ordering guide

A3189A Option #859
K260 to K460 Upgrade - Includes K460 System board.
The upgrade cost was $20,900.00 in 1999


hope this helps
