HP rx6600 Server with AD388A Processors

Hello all,

I have some AD388A's I just received and they are not showing me the FRU info in the CM>DF command through the MP.

Here is what I get:

I was told to try these commands from the OS and here is the output I get from them:

PRODUCT INFO:


They came in new sealed HP boxes but they look a little weird and then the DF command didn't work so now I am really suspicious?

See the attached picture.

Are these a prototype or are they possibly fake?

Any info would be much appreciated.

Thanks and Best Regards,

Dane

Check if the unit is properly seated, check for bent pins and if the power cable is connected.Do you use the correct slot?

Hope this helps!

Re: HP rx6600 Server with AD388A Processors

Hi Torsten,

Thanks for the info.

I have 8 of these that are doing the same thing and 2 that come up normal.

I have made sure they are seated properly and locked into place and still getting the same results.

The 8 came from one HP supplier and the 2 from another so I am getting the same result from the whole batch of 8 processors I ordered.

I am hoping someone internal to HP knows what this means....maybe they are a new release of the CPU's and there will be a firmware update to fix it in the near future.

Not sure.

Both machines I am testing these in have the latest and greatest FW installed.

Anymore info would be much appreciated.

I attached another picture of the HP box they came in.

Thanks and Best Regards,

Dane

Thanks Mits!

I think that is what I needed to assure me that there wasn't going to be any issues.

Thanks for your help!

I am going to keep this thread open for now so any input would be much appreciated.
