When you install a server module with a SAS-2-capable REM into the Sun Blade 6000 server, firmware updates might be required.
If the Sun Blade 6000 chassis has SAS-1 server modules or NEMs installed, the SAS expanders on these components need to be updated to SAS expander firmware version 5.04.03 or later.
In addition, the Sun Blade 6000 Virtualized Multi-Fabric 10GbE NEM must have minimum Oracle ILOM version 18.104.22.168 build 63406.
To update the SAS expander firmware for this release, use the fwupdate tool from the Oracle Hardware Management Pack available at:
The SAS-1/SAS-2 Compatibility Upgrade Guide for the Sun Blade 6000 Modular System contains specific information about upgrading the SAS-1 expanders using the fwupdate tool.
