After you replace the service processor, restoring the SP configuration will be much simpler if the configuration has been saved using the Oracle ILOM backup utility. If the configuration has not been backed up, do so now, if possible.
If you want to retain the same version of the system firmware with the new service processor, note the current version before you remove the service processor.
See Cold Service, Replaceable by Customer for instructions.
