Replacing new cpu fans on rx2600

Hi,
I was asked to replace cpu fans on two rx2600 running HP-UX 11iv2. The first one was on CPU 0 and the other was on CPU 1. When it did an "SS" under MP the CPU which the fan was replaced would not configure. The rx2600 with CPU 0 not configured, of course, would not boot. The actual "SS" output is "Processor 0: Installed and NOT CONFIGURED". Is there something else I need to do? I tried "cpuconfig 1 on" under EFI for the rx2600 with CPU 1 not configured, but it did not work.

Thanks...Rick

Re: Replacing new cpu fans on rx2600

Did you restart the system?

This is the usage:

> help cpuconfig
Deconfigure or reconfigure cpus

CPUCONFIG [module [on|off]]
CPUCONFIG [threads [on|off]]
CPUCONFIG [pstates [on|off]]

module : Specifies which cpu module to configure
threads : Use to display info or configure threads
pstates : Use to display info or configure Power/Performance States (P-states)
on : Specifies to reconfigure a cpu module, cpu threads, or enable
P-states
off : Specifies to deconfigure a cpu module, cpu threads, or disable
P-states

Note:
1. Cpu status will not change until next boot.
2. Specifying a cpu number without a state will display
configuration status.

Examples:
* To deconfigure CPU 0
fs0:\> cpuconfig 0 off
Cpu will be deconfigured on the next boot.

Press ENTER to continue, 'q' to exit:
* To display configuration status of cpus

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: Replacing new cpu fans on rx2600

I did try the cpuconfig command on the rx2600 that cpu 1 was not configured. I can't get to the EFI from the rx2600 that cpu 0 is not configured.
I will try it again...

Re: Replacing new cpu fans on rx2600

I did a cpuconfig 1 off, rebooted cpu 1 was deconfigured. I went into EFI and ran cpuconfig 1 on, ran info cpu, the processor state was "Sched Reconf". Rebooted, pulled the power cable out cpu 1 is still not configured.

Anything I forgot?

Re: Replacing new cpu fans on rx2600

Some pseudo-random questions:

Any chance that whatever called for replacing the fans on the CPUs also led to the CPUs getting too toasty and so are failed?

All the connectors connected again?
