After you replace the service processor, restoring the service processor configuration will be easier if you had previously saved the configuration using the Oracle ILOM backup utility. If possible, back up the ILOM configuration before removing the service processor. Refer to the Oracle ILOM documentation for instructions on backing up and restoring the Oracle ILOM configuration.To retain the same version of the system firmware with the new service processor, note the current version before removing the service processor.
Replacing the service processor is a cold service procedure that must be performed by qualified service personnel. The system must be completely powered down before performing this procedure. See Cold Service, Replaceable by Authorized Service Personnel for more information about this category of service procedures.
