RX2600 MP ( no signs of life )

I picked up an RX2600. So far I have tried everything to get any signs of life out of the RX2600 MP. I connected serial cables, ethernet cables, video monitors... etc. I also checked the EFI shell and found nothing. I pushed in the MP reset button. Is there some command in EFI that definitively shows if the MP card is even alive? No ethernet link lights. Thank all of you very much ( HP-UX newbie. we all have to start somewhere :)

Hi Steven,

Do you have the Maint. Guide? The p/n is 5969-3163. There are system leds and troubleshooting procedures for the bmc & mp in there. Sorry I can't post the link right now (the HP site is having fits at the moment).

Maybe the MP card is not connected to the system board. You can see the MP card connector with a flat ribbon cable from the top cover section view. If not connected, open the top cover, connect the cable connector to the system board and assuming the MP card is okay, you should get MP alive.

From EFI shell, you can run commands like
devtree, devices, info fw which show the various entities of the MP as long as it's being recognised.

Ahh That IS IT! I opened the cover and the connector was not connected. You would think after years of service someone would have connected that before me or noticed that. Being somewhat new to HPUX I went for all the sexxy stuff and did not cover the basics first.. :) Yes, the connector to the mother board was unconnected. I appriciate everyone's help, problem solved. THANKS EVERYONE! BYE

Well, first thing with a dead item, check to see if is powered on and plugged in! GREAT.
