Corrections to the Sun Server X3-2 Service Manual

The Sun Server X3-2 Service Manual needs to be corrected as follows:

  • The TLI is stored in the FRUID (field-replaceable unit identifiers) of these components: power distribution board (PDB), motherboard (MB), and disk backplane (DBP). This statement is incorrect. The TLI is actually stored in power supply 0 (PSU 0), the motherboard (MB), and the disk backplane DBP).

  • The IO menu PCI Subsystem Settings option in the BIOS Setup Utility is disabled by default. This statement is incorrect. The default setting for this BIOS option is "enabled." For more information on the impact of enabling this option, see "Oracle Solaris 10 1/13 Does Not Support PCI Subsystem Settings Option Enabled in the BIOS Setup Utility IO Menu".

  • The following note should be added to the "Install Power Supply" procedure:

    Note -  After you have replaced Power Supply 0, you must reset the Oracle ILOM service processor (SP) to propagate the FRU top-level indicator (TLI) data to the new power supply. For instructions on resetting the SP, see the Oracle ILOM Administrator's Guide for Configuration and Maintenance at https://www.oracle.com/goto/ilom/docs. Power Supply 1 does not contain FRU TLI data, and therefore does not require an SP reset after replacement.

    The Sun Server X3-2 Service Manual shows an incorrect procedure and example for installing a processor in the server. Replace the procedure and example for step 16b under "Install a Processor" with the following:

    b. To clear the fault identified in Step 16a, type the following command:

    -> set /SYS/MB/P0 clear_fault_action=true

    For example:

    -> set /SYS/MB/P0 clear_fault_action=true
    Are you sure you want to clear /SYS/MB/P0 (y/n)? y
    Set ‘clear_fault_action' to 'true'
