rp8400

We have received an rp8400. I was hoping I could bring this up myself but it looks more complicated than I thought. I see 1 cell board. I don't see the second board i expect to see from boot menu. Is there an install document?

Re: rp8400

Michael,

If you purchased SW phone-in support with this system, the easiest and most foolproof way to get it set up would be to call HP's support line 1-800-386-1115 i beleive is the number.

If not, then please let us know exactly what you need help with. to check on the installed cell boards:

go to the MP menu:
b

Enter the command menu:
MP> cm

check the status of the system:
MP:CM> du

this will list major system components, and put asterisks under the components that are present.

To add all the cell boards to the partition, you must first boot the system to the HP-UX prompt. from there, you can issue the parstatus command. this will show you what cell boards/partitions are configured.

also, do a man on parmodify and parcreate to see how to add and modify hardware partitions.

Re: rp8400

Thanks this has cleared up my issue. I expected the system to see all boards and procs as they were installed at the mp and boot handler. I loaded HPUX and used parmgr to configure all cells. The system reports everything correctly.
