DL360 new cpu problem

I have a dl 360 with a P3 866 1.65V and I want to put a 2nd cpu in. I have got P3 866 the same but only 1.7v or 1.75v When I put these in as the only CPU the server boots but no POST appears. The original 1.65v works ok. Any clues?
Thanks

Re: DL360 new cpu problem

The servers do not like to have mixed processors in them, especially diferent stepping levels. Mainly, the DL360 has a VRM for each CPU. If the CPU's are diferent, then the CPU's cannot sync.

You need to order Spare Part Number: 203524-001 - Intel Pentium III processor - 866MHz (Coppermine, 133MHz front side bus, 256KB Level-2 cache, FC-PGA) - Includes heat sink

Enjoy!

Re: DL360 new cpu problem

Thanks for the response, but I am only using 1 cpu at a time and the only difference is that one is 1.65v and the other is 1.7v - is there a setting that could be changed on the motherboad to adapt the m/board to the 1.7v cpu?

Re: DL360 new cpu problem

Hmmm.. not sure... the settings would have to be part of SW1 which is "undocumented".

Enjoy!

Re: DL360 new cpu problem

Hi,

What i can suggest is boot the bos with old processor. Clear the configuration using the switch settings.
Then make the 4 switch to on position and then try to flash the bios.
-------------------------------------
System Configuration Switch (SW2)
Switch Description Default Position
1 Video disable override off
2 Lock configuration Off
3 Rack mount On
4 Diskette drive boot override Off
5 Password disable Off
6 Maintenance Off

Re: DL360 new cpu problem

Did you buy this processor from compaq?
AS long as you can boot off the original cpu , i would suggest updating your BIOS and then try and boot from the new CPU.
There’s your problem!!! This thing is set to EVIL!
