Installing a server blade upgrade & Blade Link

Hello all, I am installing a blade upgrade to an 860 to make it an 870 and the associated blade link.  I've read the upgrade guide but I just want to get some feedback from any folks who have done this.  Any gotchas, some things I need to be conscious of?  Also, how long does the 'cojoning' process take?  Thanks.

Yes, I've got those.  What about applying a license to the upgrade blade, or does the license come embedded?  Thanks.

Re: Installing a server blade upgrade & Blade Link

I am not sure about the licensing, but in regards to conjoining the process only takes a few moments.   This is actually done each time the system resets.  In viewing the forward progress log messages similar to the following will indicate a successful conjoinment(?).

 

14    ILO  5          1  290020DB40E10013 0000003520796142 MMP_AMP_COMM_ESTABLISHED

The User service guide has all needed steps, make sure to run the sysset command:

 

(manual section "Upgrading the conjoined configuration")

 

[ilo002264fee1be] CM:hpiLO-> sysset
SYSSET
Current System Information Parameters:
Manufacturer : HP
Product Name (prodname) : Integrity BL870c i2
Secondary Product Name : Integrity BL860c i2
Product Number (prodnum) : AM358A
Secondary Product Number : AD399A
Serial number (serial) : Uninitialized
Secondary Serial Number : USA0003
UUID (uuid) : FFFFFFFF-FFFF-FFFF-FFFF-FFFFFFFFFFFF
Secondary UUID : 89742B3C-AD78-11DF-BB2A-5ABBD7A51B74
Product ID : 0x702
An Upgrade Blade Link has been detected.
Primary and secondary system parameters values do not match.


Copy secondary UUID and serial number to primary? (Y/[N]): y
-> Secondary system parameters values have been copied to primary
system parameters.
->System Information parameters have been updated.
iLO MP needs to be reset in order for these changes to take effect


Hope this helps!

Torsten.
