Technical Support

For technical support, go to:

http://support.oracle.com

When requesting technical support, report the following to Oracle Support Services:

ODA (Original Version)
ODA X3-2/X4-2
For the original Oracle Database Appliance, report the serial number located on the front panel of the system and on the Customer Information Sheet that is shipped with the system.
For Oracle Database Appliance X3-2 and Oracle Database Appliance X4-2, report the Top Level Identifier (TLI). To see the TLI, look on the Customer Information Sheet, or look at the top of a server node or a storage shelf, on the left-hand side towards the front.
The TLI part number and TLI serial number are the same for all factory-bundled components of an appliance. For example:
image:Picture of Top Label Identifier label.
If the appliance is in a rack where you cannot see the TLI, do one of the following:
  • Look on another component (server node or storage shelf) of the appliance. All factory-bundled components of Oracle Database Appliance have the same TLI numbers.

  • Slide a server node partway out on its rails, just far enough to see the TLI. See the Oracle Database Appliance Service Manual for details.

    Note ‐  You only need to extend the server node a couple of inches on its slide rails to see the TLI. You do not need to release any cables, or slide it to the extended maintenance position.
