DL360 G1 processor update problem

Hi,

There is a DL360 G1 server with 1x1GHz processor. It's work fine, everything is ok. But if I upgrade with a second processor, it wouldn't work. If I try to turn on the server, there is no screen, no error message, no harddisk spin up.
I try to change the order of processors, I try several processor, but the problem is same.

Could somebody help me? Thanks

Re: DL360 G1 processor update problem

Hello Zoldalma,

Pre-requisite for a processor upgrade:

1.System rom should be latest
2.Processors should be identical

Whats the OS?

Re: DL360 G1 processor update problem

Hi,

1. The System ROM is the latest what I found.
2. The processors are same type (and same series).

The OS is debian linux but i think it isn't important because the server don't boot with 2 processors only with one.
If I turn on it seems reboot cyclical (the DVD-ROM led flash periodical).

Thanks

Have you tried clearing the NVRAM via the system maintainence switch, the mother of all cures.

Thank you for your answer.
I tried to clean NVRAM, and tried to reflash, but it doesn't help.
Any other idea?

Thanks

Re: DL360 G1 processor update problem

Alright,

1.What else did you get with the 2nd processor?
2.Does the 2nd processor work in 1st processor slot?

Re: DL360 G1 processor update problem

Well,

I have 3 processors with same type from same series.
I tried all of them in processor 1 slot, and work very well.
If I put a processor to processor 2 slot, the server doesn't work. If I turn on the server in this case, the screen is blank, there isn't any error message, only the power on led lights. No memory check, no processor check, etc.

Thank you, but I didn't find any useful information.
I tried the processors an other DL360 G1 server and that worked in dual processor mode. I don't know what can I do...
