rx4640 POST failure following CPU upgrade

hi guys,

Our server is failing to boot following replacing an mx2 module with a dual-core module. The server had only one processor and the new cpu module was installed in position 0 as well.

i updated all the firmware to the latest release and followed the instruction in the server's upgrade manual but i am encountering the following error on powering the server up:

Log Entry 11: 16 Oct 2007 14:47:34
Alert Level 7: Fatal
Keyword: Type-02 076f03 487171
No events were received from system firmware
Logged by: Baseboard Management Controller;
Sensor: Processor
Data1: FRB2/Hang in POST failure
0x204714CF060200C0 FFFF036F00070300

Thanks,
James

Hello,

Refer Processor Configuration Rules at:
http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/11847_div/11847_div.HTML#Configuration

Make sure its of the same family, stepping etc.

Did you adjust the DIP switch on the I/O baseboard?

Re: rx4640 POST failure following CPU upgrade

James,

The processor i am trying to install and the way i installed it is compliant with the server's configuration rules described on the server specs.

Torsten,

As regards the dip switch i checked it out before installing the processor and i found it already in the ON position. i'm afraid that in the hurry i misread the text... and the dip switch should effectively be in the OFF position and not in the ON position as i understood :)

i'll switch it OFF and check it out tomorrow. very silly mistake!

thanks,
James
