    7 Installing Additional Processors Introduction This chapter provides the instructions for installing additional processors in the HP NetServer LXr 8500. The HP NetServer supports up to eight processor modules (8-way) on two processor carrier boards mounted on the processor baseboard. See Figures 7-1 through 7-3. The standard configuration (4-way) only uses the first four processor slots on the left processor carrier board mounted on the processor baseboard.

  • Page 84

    Chapter 7 Installing Additional Processors Use only HP recommended processor modules for the HP NetServer LXr 8500. Additional processors must match existing processor module or be changed. It is not acceptable to mix processor modules (Pentium II or III) with various speeds, cache sizes, and product numbers. Your HP reseller can advise you about matching processor modules.
