Adding 2nd processor to Sunblade 1000

Discussion in 'Sun Hardware' started by Michael A. Howard, Mar 9, 2006.

  1. I need some help adding a 2nd cpu to my sunblade 1000.

    I have 2 900Mhz processors but when I add them both into the system
    together it fails to boot. Using either CPU in slot 0 alone will work fine
    so I know the processors are good but I can't get them to work together.
    Any ideas?

    Are the part numbers the same? You can't mix Cu and non-Cu CPUs in
    a machine.

  3. Hmm, one part no. looks like PA1125, the other PA1124. I was originally
    led to believe they were the same.

  4. I doubt PA1124 or PA1125 is the Sun part number.

    Looking here:


    you see the pare are 5 part numbers for the 900 MHz CPUs. Some are for the
    Cu variants, and some are not. Rich said you can't mix Cu and non-Cu, so
    assuming he is right (and I trust he is), then I'd look at that.

    Does anyone know what "900MHz UltraSPARC III Cu Module
    (501-6002 screened for processor flatness)" is? I've never herd the term
    "processor flatness".

  5. OK I can see that they're both non Cu modules from the Sun website so
    that's not the problem.

    Could be the motherboard. I had (have) an E450 that would take three
    procs out of four in any order but none in the top (last) slot.

    Replaced the board and all was (is) fine.
