Difference between Pri SFW/Sec SFW in sysrev of an rx7620

Guys,

I've get following output in sysrev:

FIRMWARE:

Core IO
  Master        :  A.008.006
  Event Dict.   :          1.021
  Slave         :  A.008.008
  Event Dict.   :          1.021

Cell 0
  PDHC          :  A.003.031
  Pri SFW       :      8.022 (IA)
  Sec SFW       :     24.001 (PA)

Cell 1
  PDHC          :  A.003.031
  Pri SFW       :      8.022 (IA)
  Sec SFW       :     24.004 (PA)

and partition with CELL 0& 1 could not bring up. Maybe I should upgrade Master Core IO firmware first. My question is: what is the difference between Pric SFW & Sec SFW in CELL firmware? Is there a way to make them the same? Why Pri SFW refer to IA and Sec SFW to PA? As I remember, there is only one entity for SFW of one CELL.

 

regards

Stephen

The cells probably have still factory settings. The cell is always the same, no matter if there are RISC or Itanium CPUs mounted. This is the reason why there is RISC and Itanium firmware. The system selects the right firmware for the CPU.

But your core I/Os have different firmware!



Make the firmware the same on all components (you are running bundle 5.1 on one, 5.2 on the other core i/o).

Hope this helps!

Torsten,

Is there a way to upgrade Sec SFW firmware?

This is not needed.

 

But you can do this with

 

MP:CM> dfw

 

command.

 

As said, not needed.


Hope this helps!

Hi Stephen,

 

Add to Torsten update.

 

>>what is the difference between Pric SFW & Sec SFW in CELL firmware?
.The system (Cell board) can have two version of firmware, in this case any of the banks has the latest firmware will be loaded first by the system.Even the system can keep both firmware PA and IA.If the system is PARISC the PA frimware will be loaded as Pri SFW else IA firmware will be loaded.

 

>>>Why Pri SFW refer to IA and Sec SFW to PA?
In  this case, the system is Integrity rx7620, so the IA firmware  shows as Pri SFW.

 


HTH,

Surendar
