rp3440 core activation

I have a rp3440 running on only one core. I would like to activate the 2nd core with the purchase of the license. My questions are:

1) For core activation, does the server need to reboot?

2) And will HP tech do activation or is it customer activation?

thx in advance.

Hi,

I have never done this, but I am led to believe you need to contact HP. They will be able to process your request to 'unlock' the other core. Sorry I cannot be more precise.

Re: rp3440 core activation

See the manual:

http://docs.hp.com/en/A7137-96009/ch04.html

You need to reboot the system and stop at BCH, change to the service menu, run "upgrade" and put in your licence.

Reboot and you have 2 active cores.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Re: rp3440 core activation

Hello,
Where can I find this document. When I check the info of Torsten, I get a message that A7137-96009 is moved.

Yes it is to moved to the Authorization section, see

http://docs.hp.com/en/A7137-96004/ch04.html

But the procedure remains the same - request a license and install it from the BCH service menu
Service Menu: Enter command > upgrade

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
