An SPM will automatically restart following the installation of an SP or SPP.
Caution - If you remove this component while the server is powered on, wait 30 seconds before installing the replacement component. Doing so ensures that Oracle ILOM has enough time to detect the new component, which is required for the software to power it on.
Caution - The SPARC M8-8 servers include SPs that are not compatible with the SPARC M7 servers. Never install a SPARC M8 SP in a SPARC M7 server, and never install a SPARC M7 SP in the SPARC M8-8 server.
See Prevent ESD Damage.
If an FPGA update is required, refer to the SPARC M8 and SPARC M7 Servers Product Notes for information about performing the update.
Ensure that you install the cables in the same ports from which you removed them.
The Active SP will replicate the system firmware on the newly installed SP or SPP. Confirm that the correct system firmware is running. If an update is needed, update the system firmware on the Active SP (not on the newly installed SP or SPP) as follows.
For instructions, refer to the Oracle ILOM documentation.
Follow the firmware download instructions in the Oracle ILOM documentation and refer to the SPARC M8 and SPARC M7 Servers Product Notes for the current firmware version.
