ML350G3 Processor Mismatch?

I recently rounded out my citrix farm with my last 2 Compaq ML350G3 servers. I purchased the secondary processor seperately, just like I did on 4 other ML350s from same vendor. I'm running Windows 2000 server SP4 on them. When my server boots up it lists the following:

Processor 1 initialized at 2.80GHz/533 Mhz(512 Kbyte L2, 1 Mbyte L3)
Processor 2 initialized at 2.80GHz/533 Mhz (512 Kbyte L2)

I noticed in my Event viewer the following:

Event ID: 41
The CPUs in this multiprocessor system are not all the same revision level. To use all processors the operating system restricts itself to the features of the least capable processor in the system. Should problems occur with this system, contact the CPU manufacturer to see if this mix of processors is supported.

Does anyone know if it is okay to run the processors in this configuration? Did I purchase the wrong option?

Server HP# 359212-001
Processor Option HP# 314763-B21

Thanks,
Chad

Hi Chad,

It seems that either both the CPUs have different stepping levels, or there is a mismatch in cache size. you can try by swapping CPUs.

Hi Chad,

Event ID 41 is not a fault, just informational.

Please see the attached Customer Notice dated February 2004 on this matter.
