Remove a Service Processor
- Use one of these Oracle ILOM commands to display faulty components:
-> show faulty
-> show /System/Open_Problems
See View Log Files (Oracle ILOM) for examples.
- Identify which service processor must be replaced:
- Active service processor failed: If the active service processor fails, it becomes the standby service processor (while
the former standby service processor becomes active). Replace the standby service processor. Go
to Step 5.
- Standby service processor failed: Go to Step 5 to replace the standby service processor.
- Both service processors failed: Go to Step 4 to stop all the hosts first.
- If you are uncertain: Go to Step 3 to check the /SP/logs/event/list.
- Check the /SP/logs/event/list to determine which service processor failed and which service processor became
-> show /SP/logs/event/list
- If both service processors failed, stop the hosts:
Use this command only if both service processors have failed. If one service
processor failed, go instead to Step 5.
-> stop /System
Are you sure you want to stop /System (y/n) ? y
- Stop the standby service processor (SPx):
- Issue the stop command:
-> stop /SYS/SPx
In approximately two minutes, this step halts the service processor, turns off the
service processor OK LED, and lights the Ready to Remove LED.
- Verify that the service processor is stopped.
-> show /SYS/SPx
- Locate the lit blue Ready to Remove LED.
The service processor is at the front of the server.
- Use an antistatic wrist strap to protect the equipment from ESD damage.
- Label and disconnect the cables attached to the serial and network ports.
Serial management is the upper port.
Network management is the lower port.
- Remove the faulty service processor:
- Squeeze the locks on the extraction levers.
- Swing the extraction levers into the horizontal position.
- Pull the service processor out of the slot.
- Determine your next step:
