Caution - Processor(s) should be removed only by an Oracle qualified service technician.
Caution - The processor socket used in the Sun Server X3-2 is the Intel LGA2011. Processor removal and replacement must be done using the green color-coded tool (see Removing a Processor). Using a tool with a different color code might result in damage to the processor and the socket. The supported replacement processor for the server includes the correct tool.
Note - When the Fault Remind button is pressed, a LED located next to the Fault Remind button lights green to indicate that there is sufficient voltage present in the fault remind circuit to light any fault LEDs that were set due to a failure. If this LED fails to light when you press the Fault Remind button, it is likely that the capacitor powering the fault remind circuit has lost its charge. This can happen if the Fault Remind button is pressed for a long time with fault LEDs lit or if power has been removed from the server for more than 15 minutes.
The processor fault LEDs are located next to the processor(s).
If processor fault LED is off: processor is operating properly.
If processor fault LED is on (amber): processor is faulty and should be replaced.
Note - Processor 0 (P0) is on the left side when viewing the server from the front.
Turn the screws counterclockwise alternately one and one half turns until they are fully removed.
A thin layer of thermal grease separates the heat sink and the processor. This grease also acts as an adhesive.
Note - Do not allow the thermal grease to contaminate the work space or other components.
Be very careful not to get the thermal grease on your fingers.
Caution - Failure to clean the heatsink prior to removing the processor could result in the accidental contamination of the processor socket or other components. Also, be careful not to get the grease on your fingers as this could result in contamination of components.
Caution - Whenever you remove a processor, you should replace it with another processor and reinstall the processor heatsink; otherwise, the server might overheat due to improper airflow. For instructions for installing a processor, see Install a Processor.
To properly position the tool over the processor socket, rotate the tool until the green triangle on the side of the tool is facing the front of the server and it is over the left side of the processor socket when viewing the server from the front.
An audible click indicates that the processor is engaged.
