PCI/PCI-X/PCI-E Backplane?

How can I determine if my rx2660 or my rx6600 HP systems (running 11.23) have the above mentioned backplane?

 

Is there a command to show this?

 

Thanks

Re: PCI/PCI-X/PCI-E Backplane?

Can you send an

# ioscan -fn

of both systems?

The hardware path for the slots are different.

Hope this helps!

Re: PCI/PCI-X/PCI-E Backplane?

The rx6600 has either
8 pci-x slots
or
4 pci-x slots and 4 pci-e slots.

Your system has 8 pci-x slots, no pci-e.




The rx2660 can either have a "pure" pci-x riser, "pure" pci-e or a mix of both.


Hope this helps!

Same for the second system.

Do a

# ioscan -fndlba


You can also do a

# olrad -q

and you get all information about the slots.

PCI-e output would look like this (superdome sx2000):

# olrad -q

Re: PCI/PCI-X/PCI-E Backplane?

The HPUX 11iv3 support matrix states that rx6600 with a PCI/PCI-X/PCI-E Backplane is not supported.

 

So I guess my configuration isn't supported?

Re: PCI/PCI-X/PCI-E Backplane?

I assume you have an older version of this matrix.

PCI-e was not supported on the first release in february 2007, but now it is.

 

You don't have pci-e anyway.


Hope this helps!
