Free PCI slots

Hello,

I have an Itanium server which does not support the usage of olrad, below is the output of ioscan

Re: Free PCI slots

pth 0/4 looks empty - what server model is it?

Hope this helps!

Re: Free PCI slots

Could you please post a

# ioscan -fn

Your server can have a PCXi, PCXe or a combo riser card - this makes the difference.

Hope this helps!

Re: Free PCI slots

You already have a P400 on 0/3 and an AD299 fiber card on 0/5 which are both PCIe cards so you have a combo PCIe/PCI-x bus.

0/2 is unused and most likely is a PCIe

0/4 is unused and clearly stated as PCI-X

This is NOT and rx2600, it looks like a rx4640 with 4 PCI slots. The rx2660 has only 3 PCI slots and there is NO 0/5 bus.

Re: Free PCI slots

Actually your server is most likely an rx2620 with 4 PCI slots. The rx2660 has 3 slots and the rx4640 has 6 slots.

Re: Free PCI slots

Ignore my previous posting, I overlapped your ioscan reply.

Your new ioscan looks the same as the two previous ones. My rx2660 does not have a 0/5 bus at all but it is all PCI-X. Maybe your 0/5 is the result of the use of the builtin P400 raid card on 0/3.

Re: Free PCI slots

The rx2660 has a short vertical slot dedicated for the P400 controller. My server does not have a P400 installed that's why it has one less i/o bus. So if you have a p400 on the short vertical PCI slot in 0/3 then 0/2, 0/4 and 0/5 are the 3 horizontal PCI slots.
0/2 unused (most likely PCIe)
0/4 unused PCI-X
0/5 FC HBA PCIe

Re: Free PCI slots

The combination

gh2p
and
PCItoPCI

indicates PCIe slots.

These are

0/2
0/3
0/5

This is PCIx

0/4


So you have a combo riser card installed.

Slot 1 (PCIe) = 0/5
Slot 2 (PCIe) = 0/2
Slot 3 (PCIx) = 0/4
RAID slot (PCIe) = 0/3

Slot 1 has a FC card
Slot 2 is empty
Slot 3 is empty
RAID SA P400 is installed





HTH!

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
