    Caution  -  When reinstalling power supplies, it is important to reinstall them into the slots from which they were removed during the motherboard removal procedure; otherwise, the server key identity properties (KIP) data might be lost. When a server requires service, the KIP is used by Oracle to verify that the warranty on the server has not expired. For more information on KIP, see FRU Key Identity Properties (KIP) Automated Update.

  9. Install the air baffle.

    Install the air baffle by placing it into the storage server and lowering it to its installed position.

  10. Return the storage server to operation.
    1. Install the storage server top cover.

      See Install the Storage Server Top Cover.

    2. Return the storage server to the normal rack position.

      See Return the Storage Server to the Normal Rack Position.

    3. Reconnect the power cords to the power supplies, and power on the storage server.

      See Reconnect Power and Data Cables and Power On the Storage Server. Verify that the power supply AC OK LED is lit.

    Note -  IMPORTANT: When the motherboard is replaced, the key identity properties (KIP) of the motherboard is programmed by Oracle ILOM to contain the same KIP as the other quorum member components. If you have removed other quorum member components, you might need to manually program the product serial number (PSN) into the new motherboard. For more information, refer to FRU Key Identity Properties (KIP) Automated Update.
