Re: checking part number of memory

Hi John,

Try running the following command :

echo "selclass qualifier memory;info;wait;infolog" | cstm

Re: checking part number of memory

John,
Use cstm command to get the memory information:
echo "selclass qualifier memory;info;wait;infolog" | /usr/sbin/cstm > cstm_memory_details.txt


and the Part Number will be listed in the 'Part Num' column.

- Then use partsurfer.hp.com to get more details on the part number.



Example:
------------
Basic Memory Description

Module Type: MEMORY
Page Size: 4096 Bytes
Total Physical Memory: 524288 MB
Total Configured Memory: 524288 MB
Total Deconfigured Memory: 0 MB

Memory Board Inventory

DIMM Location Size(MB) State Serial Num Part Num
-------------------- -------- ------- ---------------- ------------------
Cab 0 Cell 0 DIMM 0A 2048 Config PRY07064US A9846-60301
Cab 0 Cell 0 DIMM 0B 2048 Config PRY07063JF A9846-60301
Cab 0 Cell 0 DIMM 1A 2048 Config PRY06372A2 A9846-60301

Re: checking part number of memory

Shalom,

http://partsurfer.hp.com

That contains some parts information on what is standard for the server.

Otherwise you will as already noted have to use cstm.

I agree cstm is a better solution because not all servers have HP branded parts.

http://docs.hp.com/en/hw.html#HP%209000%20Superdome%20Server
Contains documentation on your server including standard part numbers and such. Since superdomes are big and complicated you may not find the document you need on the first click.

Re: checking part number of memory

Hi John,

You can get the memory dimm part number from cstm and also from GSP/MP

Run the following command..

GSP>cm
GSP:CM>df ==> Select A for selecting all and D to dump.

From this out put you would get the exact part number for the dimm and also other HW connected to this box.

Best Regards,
Prashanth
