from L3000 to L15000?

i was working on a L3000 (It showed as an L 3000) I boot it up to the network and it was working fine till it locked up, after that, now its showing as an L1500. Does anybody know what went wrong?

Hi Marco,

Run stm (xstm or cstm) and check if all processors are online, I suspect you lost one or two.

Check the gsp logs for errors.

Hope this helps,

Re: from L3000 to L15000?

Even if the server has lost processors, it should still show as L3000.

The difference between L1500 and L3000 is just a "lock code" which unlocks about half of the capabilities of the system board. The code is system-specific and probably heavily encrypted.

It seems your server has corrupted its lock code for some reason. This should not happen very easily: the system board might be damaged. Could there have been a power spike or something like that when the server locked up?

Whatever the cause is, you're going to need a HP engineer. If you have a service agreement, that should not be a problem; but if you haven't, prepare to prove that the server is actually supposed to be a L3000, not L1500.
