Icap question after adding cpu to rx7640

Hi,

We are going to add a cpu to our rx7640 server, next weak, the cpu we are going to add comes from another rx7640 we have. my question is, Will I have a problem with ICAP using this cpu ?, is it going to deactivate it and wont let me use it until I get a license from HP ?. The servers don't have support contract anymore.

Do you already have icap cpus in your system?
"icapstatus" should show you.

Hope this helps!

They where never activated via license with Icap the came with the server, but they are under icap control:

Re: Icap question after adding cpu to rx7640

Although I have to add, that this server has problems with cimserver eating 100% cpu, so I have it disabled most of the time( I have to fix it updating sfm that is the root of the cause ).

and also...
ERROR: The Instant Capacity daemon (icapd(1M)) is not running on this
partition. The functions this daemon performs are vital to keeping
the complex-wide view of the Instant Capacity state current.

You can check the present hardware patches installed in your system for high cpu utilization for cim process.

Also, I think, with icap, you can enable already installed inactive cpus after you are buying the icap license.
For new cpu installation, no icap activation will be needed.

Thanks,
Vivek

Re: Icap question after adding cpu to rx7640

Ok, so then I should be ok, installing the new cpus.

and out of curiosity, where is the icap information saved ?, only at OS in the /etc/.iCOD_data or also at server firmware level?.

Because I understand if you remove a cpu from the server, it has no knowledge of it's previous icap state?

Hi,

Yes you should be ok, I have done that kind of operation once, on a cell that didn't have previous icaped cores, and it worked fine.Because as it has been said, you are not activating a cpu, you are adding new cpus.
Windows?, no thanks
