hi
the normal procedure to upgrade your server to 2 Procs is:


- look for proc which has to be the same as the one you already have
- update server to latest System ROM
- add second processor to server

Didn't your momma teach you to say thanks!

Re: UPGARDE OF SERVER PROCESSOR

For ml570 i suggest to download firmware cd:
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=15351&prodSeriesId=1842779&prodNameId=3285475&swEnvOID=1005&swLang=8&mode=2&taskId=135&swItem=MTX-a3d64497af4d4cdeb699c2edd3
its bootable cd - restart server with firmware cd inside cdrom and follow instruction on the screen

for dl140 please download:
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=15351&prodSeriesId=1842838&swItem=MTX-a7593c9adf6b4ed9a30d7c87e3&prodNameId=3285485&swEnvOID=1005&swLang=8&taskId=135&mode=4&idx=0
its file to be run under operating system . execute the file and You will see installation wizard
Before You will perform upgrade read "Installation Instructions" on downloading sites .
