Deconfigured Cpu'S

On my rx8640 server, when I do a parstatus it shows that two CPU's are deconfigured.
How do I configure them.

[CPU Details]

Type : N/A
Speed : 1418 MHz
CPU Status
=== ======
0 OK
1 OK
2 Deconfigured
3 Deconfigured
4 OK
5 OK
6 OK
7 OK

CPUs
===========
OK : 6
Deconf : 2
Max : 8

Any info will he highly helpfull - thanks

Re: Deconfigured Cpu'S

The reasons for a deconfigured CPU could be various like i/d cache h/w failures and/or exceeding the LPMC thresholds of i/d cache errors, bus problem etc. These problems would make the CPU as "not responding", the firmware will detect the "degradation" and it will de-configure it. This all happens during CPU self test routines on power-on as well while system is up and running OS.

is there HP Integrity Management Agent installed there?

how many cells in there?

these 2 processors are in same cell?

There are 2 active cells

CPU Memory Use
OK/ (GB) Core On
Hardware Actual Deconf/ OK/ Cell Next Par
Location Usage Max Deconf Connected To Capable Boot Num

cab0,cell0 Active Core 8/0/8 32.0/0.0 cab0,bay0,chassis0 yes yes 0

cab0,cell2 Absent * - - - - - -
cab0,cell3 Absent * - - - - - -

Notes: * = Cell has no interleaved memory.

There are 14 processors which makes it dual boot

How do i check whether these two processors are part of same cell?

Yes both the deconfigured CPU's are part of the same cell - cell 1

Re: Deconfigured Cpu'S

all right then. check the firmware of that cell board. may be some mismatch there.

BTW, if your OS claimed all the CPU's, check with the 'top' command.

Since two CPUs in Cell 0 is showing as deconfigured, TOP is shoiwng as 14 CPUs

Re: Deconfigured Cpu'S

How do I check the firmware of the cell board. Is there any way...I can check or modify the status or the CPU from the EFI shell

Re: Deconfigured Cpu'S

Hi

1)the Firmware for all the parts of the SD can be checked logging onto the MP Console.

GO To the COmmand Menu.

MP>CM
from there give command sysrev.


MP:CM>sysrev

this shall showe all trhe firmwares of the SD that is PDC,PDHC,CELL,IO etc.

2)the other part is that the Deconfigured CPUs can be made to use on the next boot only.

3) as this is an SD, Firmware (upgrade if reqd) and the CPU operations better to get done by logging a Case with HP and Authorosed HP Engineers only.

Re: Deconfigured Cpu'S

Check on the FPL logs on the mp, and search for this type of message:

CELL_HW_DEGRADED


if you see these type messages, you have a HDW issue on the cpus
Windows?, no thanks

Re: Deconfigured Cpu'S

Sorry i didn't see your other post, you can try and enable the cpus from the efi:


cpuconfig

to see if the CPUs are shown as de-configured.

If this is what has been done, then:

cpuconfig 0 on
cpuconfig 1 on
cpuconfig 2 on


Windows?, no thanks

Re: Deconfigured Cpu'S

hi


just in add of what orange_adm says the
#cpuconfig on

considering this an SD

might take the form as

EFI Shell>cpuconfig on

to activate the Deconfigured processors.

where CELL_NO can take the form of 0/1 , 1

etc that means 0/1 is in the Cell local format and reads Cabinet0/Cell1 and later reads local format that is Simply cell 1.

Obviously for a multicabinet SD.

Re: Deconfigured Cpu'S

In addition to being deconfigured as part of predictive, and being explcitily deconfigured via cpuconfig, isn't it possible that the cpus are iCOD? I don't know what that would look like at the various levels but thought I would mention it.

Re: Deconfigured Cpu'S

Thanks, I was able to make the CPU's up through the EFI menu.
However is there any way to check whether these CPU's are part of iCod

Re: Deconfigured Cpu'S

Hi,


to check if the CPUs on the system are a part of ICOD or ICAP, the following commands can be tried.
#icapstatus
#icod_stat


#icapstatus
