rx7620 Cell FW upgrade


Our customer in Syria ( SyriaTel ) has an rx7620 server running HPUX 11i v2.
The server has one partition which contains one cell board in slot 1.

They tried to add a new cell to current partition (slot 0), but the installation failed due to a difference with the firmware revision.
The attached file 2xCells includes the output of â sysrevâ and â deâ commands (MP)

Our job should be the update of the current cell firmware using MP:COM> fw command.
In fact , the available FWs for rx6720 are ver 4.0 , 4.1 , 4.2 , 5.0 , 5.1 .

Please I need answers for the following issues :
1- What is the FW rev applied on the current cell (4.0 , 4.1 , 4.2 , 5.0 , 5.1 )
2- What is the FW rev applied on the new cell ( 4.0 , 4.1 , 4.2 , 5.0 , 5.1)
3- What is the rev of SFW of the current cell : Pri SFW : 23.001 ( PA) or Sec SFW : 3.096 (IA)
4- What is the rev of SFW of the new cell : Pri SFW : 24.001 ( PA) or Sec SFW : 3.096 (IA)
5- Should i use the OSP utility ( MP:CM> osp ) to update the FPGA components before launching the fw , and what are the entities to be selected and updated.
6- The fw utility should be executed to update Cell SFW , Cell PDHC and Core IO MP veriosns ? and what are the entities which should be selected.
7- Should I execute again the fw to update the Event Dictionary firmware .

Please advise.

Thanks and Regards
