How to Verify CPLD Versions

All CMODs must have identical CPLD levels. After installing a CMOD, you must verify the CPLD levels for all CMODs in the chassis.

Before You Begin

All CMODs in the chassis must be installed, and the chassis must be in standby power mode. The green LED on all CMODs must be steady ON.

For more on standby power, see Power Modes.

  1. Log in to the Oracle ILOM.
  2. Enter the following command for each node in the chassis:

    show /SYS/BLn/CPLD

    where n is the node number.

  3. Verify that all nodes return the same value.

    If all nodes do not return the same value, contact Oracle service.
