S5000PAL x5355 Error 19f

Jump to solution

Hi,

I have a problem with an SR2500ALLXR.

S5000PAL with latest Bios (S5000.86B.15.00.0101.11092010)

2x x5355 6FB/SLAEG (Processor information screens in the BIOS are equal)

The error manager in the BIOS shows one error 19F (processor & chipset stepping configuration unsupported).

The BIOS changelog (http://downloadmirror.intel.com/19603/eng/release.txt http://downloadmirror.intel.com/19603/eng/release.txt) means 5300 series is supported, also http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/sb/CS-022346.htm http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/sb/CS-022346.htm says it´s supported.

Linux boots fine, all CPUs are deteced, no lookups.

On the surface everything seems to work apart from the BIOS message.

But if the system gets stressed with more than 2 cores it slows down and gets extremly laggy.

mprime on 8 cores -> ssh console lags a few seconds.

starting a java server booting 80 processes -> startup takes 10mins, load average jumps up to 50+, unresponsive is not the correct term;)

On a similar system it takes <10 seconds.

It seems like SMP is broken. But absolutely no failures anywhere. All logs are clear.

Anyone has an idea?

Tnx in advance.

Matt

Check you board PBA# . You'll need D13607-801 or later to support Intel® Xeon® Processor 5300 series. For more details, see http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/sb/CS-023585.htm http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/sb/CS-023585.htm.

Thanks for your hint.

D13607-703

needed: D13607-801 or later

That means this board is not capable of running any quadcore?

Regards

Matt

Yes the hardware supports Xeon 5300 series processors. You'll need BIOS 66 or later. If your BIOS version is lower than 66, first upgrade to BIOS 66, BMC 55 and FRUSDR 40a, then upgrade to latest version. See http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/sb/CS-023585.htm http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/sb/CS-023585.htm for details.

No the board doesn't support Xeon 5400 series. See http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/sb/CS-028540.htm http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/server/sb/CS-028540.htm.

As for performance it's difficult to say... X5355 has higher frequency, but E5410 has more cache, and newer Lithography... See http://ark.intel.com/compare/33080,28035 http://ark.intel.com/compare/33080,28035.
