Prepare the Server for Hot Service

Note -  The steps in this remote procedure use the Oracle ILOM web interface. However, the procedure can also be performed remotely using the Oracle ILOM CLI interface (for more information, refer to the Oracle ILOM documentation).

A hot-service component can be serviced while the server is operating at full-power mode. For more information about component serviceability, see Component Serviceability Requirements.

This procedure describes how to prepare the server to remove, replace, or install the following hot-service components:

  • Fan modules

  • Power supplies

  • Storage drives

  • Dual PCIe Card Carriers (DPCCs)
