Re: rp8400

Hi Jon,

I would use the nPartition manager or the system managemnt homepage.
See

Re: rp8400

Hi Jon,

The easiest way is from command line:

example:
To add a new cell in slot3 to the existing partition with Partition Number 1.
#parmodify -p 1 -a 3:base:y:ri

#shutdown -Ry 0
(note upper case R for "reset for reconfiguraton)
the machine will reboot and stop at BIB.

Check the F/W is the same as the rest of the cells:

CTRL B
MP> CM> SYSREV

If ok, then release from BIB by doing:
MP> CM> BO

The machine will boot with all 4 cells in the npar.
Just make sure your new cell has the same speed CPU's and that the firmware is the same.
Cheers,
Phil
