The Virtualized M2 NEM must be installed in a Sun Blade 6000 chassis with a PCIe 2.0 midplane and the minimum supported CMM version firmware:
The Sun Blade 6000 chassis A90–D comes with PCIe 2.0 midplane support and requires a minimum CMM firmware version of 22.214.171.124 (included in Sun Blade 6000 software release 4.0).
The Sun Blade 6000 chassis A90–B might have a PCIe 2.0 midplane and requires a minimum CMM firmware version of 126.96.36.199a (included in Sun Blade 6000 software release 3.2.1). If the chassis does not come with a PCIe 2.0 compliant midplane, the midplane can be upgraded.
You can check that the chassis has the a PCIe 2.0 midplane by logging into the CMM ILOM and performing one of the following steps:
Using the web interface, select CMM from the left pane and go to System Information —> Components and click on /CH in the Component Manager Status table.
Using the CLI, enter the show/CH command at the prompt.
The midplane manufacturing part number is displayed in the fru_part_number field.
If the part number is 541–3789–xx or greater, the PCIe 2.0 midplane is installed.
If the part number is 541–1983–0x, the previous version of the PCIe midplane is installed and you should upgrade to the PCIe 2.0 midplane. The midplane is a field-replaceable unit (FRU) and must be removed and installed only by authorized Oracle service personnel.
