Your Sun Blade 6000 Modular System must have a PCIe 2.0 compliant midplane. For more information on determining this, refer to the Sun Blade 6000 Modular System Product Notes.
Your Sun Blade 6000 Modular System must have CMM ILOM firmware that supports the Sun Blade Storage Manager M2 and the servers that will use it. For a list of the minimum CMM ILOM firmware requirements to support SAS-2 and the CMM ILOM Sun Blade Zone Manager, refer to Supported Firmware, Hardware and Software in Sun Blade Storage Module M2 Product Notes. The latest firmware can be downloaded from http://www.oracle.com/goto/blades.
You must have already installed your SAS-2 supported components (server module with SAS-2 REM, SAS-2 NEMs, and SAS-2 storage modules).
Your SAS-2 NEM must be at a firmware version level that supports zoning. Check your NEM Product Notes for version information and available updates.
You must have already performed initial setup and configuration of your CMM ILOM and planned your connection method (web browser or CLI) as described in the Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) 3.0 Getting Started Guide.
