The X-ray data of A2029 obtained with XMM-Newton show no evidence of an embedded AGN in the central region of this cluster, which was suggested from the analysis of restored ASCA image data, although some hot spots are seen within or around the central cD galaxy. The absence of AGN at the cluster center is consistent with the result of Chandra observations. Radial profiles of the iron abundance and the 2D (surface) temperature obtained from the XMM-Newton data are in good agreement with the Chandra data as a whole.
