How to Prepare for Service

  1. Review the service task table for service sequencing and important safety information. See Service Task Table.
  2. Review the Sun Server X2-8 (formerly Sun Fire X4800 M2) Product Notes document for up-to-date information about hardware-, software- and firmware-related issues.
  3. If necessary, quiesce the OS.

    Note - Removal of some hot-plug components might cause disruption to network or storage access. Take the necessary precautions to prepare the OS for the inaccessibility of network communications or storage access.

  4. If necessary, place the server in standby power mode or power off the server. See Power Modes.

    Note - Before powering off the server to perform the removal or installation of a component, review the removal and installation procedures. Some components are hot-pluggable, and it might not be necessary to power off the server (see Hot-Plug Components).
