In this particular case i oversimplified the "vpd bad" error, IBM says:
Invalid processor VPD
Follow the instructions for the items listed in the FRU List.
No additional problem determination.
And the VPDPART failing item tells you to replace the second processor
So, the system VPD is fine, it's a processor assembly that's bad.
