Overview

These HP 9000 L-Class L1000 and L2000 are two or four-way multi-processor PA-RISC servers for rack-mounting, 7U in height. They are based on 64-bit processors, and a rather conservative system architecture with an Astro/Elroy system design used in many HP Visualize workstations, such as B2000, C3000 and C3600. As with other HP 9000 servers of the late-1990s, the L-Class were renamed under the rp server moniker, but still part of the HP 9000 series. Their L1500 and L3000 sucessors used a completely different system architecture.

The L1000 and L2000 could be upgraded with a board-swap (mainboard, processors, etc.) to the Itanium 2-based rx5670 servers.

Internals

CPU

Both the L1000 and L2000 came with two different system boards, which supported different types of processors (A versus B suffix on the model number).

The L1000/rp5400 systems support up to 2-way and the L2000/rp5450 up to 4-way SMP. The following table lists the various suffixes denoting the different theoretically possible CPU-configurations. Upgrading from one configuration to another could require the replacement of other parts besides the processor, e.g., the mainboard or power supply.

It is possible not all system boards shipped with these L1000/L2000s support all possible processors.
