Re: Rx 8640 Npar

well if cell 1 fails, and you are unabel to use it, any I/O connecfted to that cell also becomes unuseable until you repair/replace the failed cell.
As for your second question, providing a list of failures in a cell which will affect the npar is not viable.

Hi,

If you have problem with cellboard and you have unassigned cellboard, then yes, you can replace it, to make it even safer, use the same firmware for every cell that you have in a complex

Re: Rx 8640 Npar

If a HPMC occurs this will bring down the npar. The handling of problems will depend on the OS release and your configuration.
hp-ux 11.31 does even support online cell replacements. But in general, a serious hardware problem will affect the npar.

Hope this helps!
