Hi ,

From the above output,

HW status for Cell 0 : FAILURE DETECTED

"Processor Compatibility : FAULT"

Are you sure this is a proper part which you have used?

What about >sysrev????

Re: cell addition in rx7640


compare the cpu's between existing cell board working and new cell board.

are they the same? same type?

check the firmware versions of both cell boards as well with sysrev command from mp.

if they are different you may need to update one of the cell boards.
