Hi,

We are having a blade 2000 system with dual processor and it was working fine.

Recently we have replaced the mother board. When we switch-on the system with dual CPU's installed it is displaying the followign error
"Error: Invalid FRU Container Version expected:1, found: e801
ERROR: CPU1 SEEPROM 'OP' segment has invalid format. powering-off the system"

But, system is working fine with the CPU present in Slot0. If we try to interchange the CPU in slot1 to slot0 it says "FRU access failed, using [email protected]"

The part numbers are same for both the processor. We tried installing this processor in another blade 2000 system, there also it is giving the above error.

bye

    Hello Vijay,

    When we switch-on the system with dual CPU's installed it is displaying the followign error
    "Error: Invalid FRU Container Version expected:1, found: e801 ERROR: CPU1 SEEPROM 'OP' segment
    has invalid format. powering-off the system"


    = Malfunction of CPU in Slot 1

    But, system is working fine with the CPU present in Slot0.

    = The first CPU (the one installed in Slot0) is ok

    We tried installing this processor (.. from slot 1..) in another blade 2000 system, there also it is giving the above error.

    Pretty obvious that this CPU is dead. Maybe you have just bent a pin in the connector.

    Btw. please don't double post. At least add a reference to your other post.
