Hi,

Partnumber: A9789A
Description: HP 9000 rp7420-16 Upgrade Kit

HP server upg rp7405 or rp7410 to rp7420

RP7420 info

A minimum of one and a maximum of two cells can be ordered in an HP 9000 rp7420 16 Server. Each cell can be purchased with up to four active dual core PA 8900/8800 processor modules (8 processors), or in combination with Instant Capacity processors. Four processor speeds are supported; 1.1 GHz and 1.0 GHz (using PA-8900) or 1.0 GHz and 900 MHz (using PA-8800).

could i use PA-RISC 8900 processors in this server?
I'm not 100% sure, you should ask HP, but I think the PA-8900 is supported.

could i use 8900 and 8700+ together in one cell?
No look at the word or

The HP 9000 rp7420 16 Server is a symmetrical multiprocessing (SMP) server supporting up to 8 high performance dual core PA 8900 (1.1 GHz or 1.0 GHz) or PA-8800 (1.0 GHz or 900 MHz) processor modules

what i need to replace in server for upgrade into rp7420?
cell boards and cpu's, depend a bit on if you can use the upgrade kit for PA-8900.

Robert-Jan

Hi again,

HP svr upg rp7405 or rp7410 to rx7620

Upgrading the HP Server rp7410 and rp8400 systems
The HP Server rp7410 and rp8400 were the first releases of the current generation of the HP midrange server family. These PA-8700 RISC-based servers can be easily upgraded to an HP 9000 rp7420-16 or rp8420-32 Server containing PA-8900 processors. Upgrading the HP Server rp7410 and HP Server rp8400 is simple:
1. Remove the cell boards.
2. Transfer all memory to the new cell board.
3. Plug the cell board into the cabinet.
4. Remove/replace existing core I/O(s).
5. Remove/replace I/O backplane board.
6. Upgrade system firmware (as needed).
7. Install desired operating system.
8. Change system bezel to reflect the correct system name and color scheme.

This should be the same for the rx7620.

Best regards,
Robert-Jan
