rp7410 Adding cell to partition 0.

I am trying to add a cell to partition 0 on a rp7410.
I receive the following error ---
# parmodify -p 0 -a 0:base:y
Error: There are incompatible cells:
Global cell 0, cabinet 0, cell 0 - IODC version 24128 PDC major 16
Current IODC hversion is 24240 and PDC major number is 16.

I have 875Mhz cpu's in both cells.

Re: rp7410 Adding cell to partition 0.

Ken,

It looks like the cell you are trying to add has had its dipswitches set incorrectly. the correct setting for 875MHz CPUs is:

off|on|off|on|on|on|on|on

I guess this is the problem, since it identifies the CPUs as 750MHz.

Hope this solves your problem.
