Apple Xserve 2009 only one CPU working

Apple Xserve 2009 only one CPU working

(OP)
I couldn't find anywhere for Apple servers probably because there are none now.
I have a dual quad core Xserve 2009 which is working as a single processor doe to there being no power on CPU B as indicated by mainboard LEDs. I have Googled and Googled but I can't find where to look for the lack of CPU B power.

RE: Apple Xserve 2009 only one CPU working

I know very little about the Sxerve but did stumble upon a guy who was able to disable a CPU in the open firmware with the following:


go into open firmware (hold down command-option-o-f)
setenv boot-args cpus=1
mac-boot


Here is a link to the article I found it in. I would assume changing the 1 to a 2 will allow you to enable it back to two CPUs. You may want to poke around some more to double check that assumption but at least you have a direction to go.

Intel Xserves don't have open firmware.
Thank you

Forgot that the g4 wasnt in all Xserves, my bad.

This may be the only option for getting into the EFI environment and see what they have to explore: http://refit.sourceforge.net/
