Hello,

I have a rp7420 server with one cell board and one npartition. I want to add a new cell to this partition. Igot the following error.What is the problem?

############
Cells exist in the complex that cannot be mixed within a single nPartition. The following groups indicate those cells that are mutually compatible. Do not mix cells from different groups in the same nPartition.

Group 1:
Cell Compatibility: 35024-PA

Cells:
cab0, cell1

Group 2:
Cell Compatibility: 35040-PA

any cell is performing power-on selftest.

HI Hasan,
1. could you please check from vfp the cell 0 is in reconfigure reset mode ie BIB mode. I hope the cell's should be in BIB mode during partition confirugaration.

2. check the sysrev output and check both cells and i/o 's are having same firmware.

Thanks and regards

Re: add a new cell to npar

Hi,

looks like you have different firmware versions on the certain components. Please run

MP:CM> sysrev

from the MP prompt and post.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: add a new cell to npar

I think your cellboard firmware different between cell 0 and cell 1

please look at output from sysrev command at MP.

Diferent firmware cellboard at one partition not allowed. but if you want create new partition with cell #1 i think its possible.


Thanks

I think you are using cells with different processors. Check for the consistency of the processors.
