Again 3000, adding CPU

Hi there....
I've got barebone (no smartstart cds, drivers, etc) proliant 3000 in the lab and trying to beef it up with one more cpu. It gives out 212-processor 1 failed message on boot up (tried to swap cpus, cpu power modules, reseat cpus). I'm new at this kind of hardware but only systems I have found dox for were p2, this one is P3 550Mhz, has eight jumpers insead of six in system configuration switch SW2 (I was looking for nvram reset switch). Configuration partions is wiped out too, I'm getiing nowhere on magic f10... Firmware upgraded with SP20622. Where I can get an image of a sys config utility diskette?
Any other suggestions ?

Thanks in advance for any info

Dear Antonio
Thanks I wouldn't post it here if I have found what I need on the web. Could you be more specific?

That is the SCU which will create 2 floppy disks which you can boot on. If you already have an OS installed then DO NOT install this to the hard drive since it will take the first 40 megs or so of the hard drive and wipe out your existing partition

Once your in the SCU try marking CPU1 as repaired

Bingo!!! Thank you so much. Any chance you could help me find ACU version 2.0 or higher?
Looks like array has a drive configured with acu v 2.3 and don't want to cooperate with my acu 1.20; and, how do I reset flush configuration if I need to?

Cheers

This is the application for Windows .. there is also a web based application for windows as well called ACU-XE here : http://h18007.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/19658.html

But all in all i prefer the first one. :)

Hope that helps

Re: Again 3000, adding CPU

...errr. Thanks. I saw them. But this is VMWARE ESX Server host (RH 7... something). Any diskette versions around?

Re: Again 3000, adding CPU

Only thing i can think of would be to use a Smartstart 7+ cd .. you can download the images for them from Http://www.hp.com/servers/smartstart

Also not exactly sure what you mean by flush the configuration

Re: Again 3000, adding CPU

OK, it's here. I downloaded .rpm from http://h18007.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/10858.html Trying to make it work now. Still in "detecting controllers" screen.

I mean if I need to re-initialize the controller and disk regardless of preserving data?

Re: Again 3000, adding CPU

Cool glad you found the softpaq.

In regards to just reiniting the array just use a smartstart and run a system erase. there is also a System Erase Diskette that will wipe the entire hard drive array, controller, nvram and all attached storage

Quiet but deadly :) To data anyways
