Multiprocessor Error Indication (IP and FP Codes)

D Character denoting the type of board/card issuing the error as follows.

S Slot number of the board/card issuing the error

If you receive an IP or FP error, do the following.
  1.  Replace the board/card issuing the error.
  2.  If replacing a FRU does not correct the problem, reinstallthe FRU you removed from the computer, then,  continue with the next step.
  3.  Remove all cards/boards of the same type identified by the error code one at a time until you locate the  failing card/board. (Example, if the error code identified a memory card and replacing the memory card in the  slot identified by the error codedoes not correct the problem, remove all memory cards one at a time until you locate  the failing board)

     If the problem remains, replace the FRUs in the following order.

    1.  Memory Card
    2.  Processor Card
