Re: MP Console

Don't know what system you have, but I'm sure the firmware is much too old.

Looks like a rx3600/rx6600 with firmware from 2007!!!


All items should be up to date and must fit together.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: MP Console

The user guide will be helpful.

All of the items are on the I/O and MP board, all working together (for short).

Some are directly responsible for the system board and CPUs (BMC = baseboard management controller, PDH = processore dependend hardware, HFC = highspeed fan controller), some are I/O related (DHPC ~ hot-plug controller, UCIO ~ well, it's I/O).


The reason why you see them all is that each item has individual firmware, but don't worry, all are in the same bundle.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
