Install a Power Supply


Note -  If you are installing a power supply in a SPARC M8-8 server, ensure that you have installed the three shims along the side of the replacement power supply. For more information, see Install the Power Supply Shims (SPARC M8).

Caution

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

Caution  -  The SPARC M8-8 server includes power supplies that are not compatible with the SPARC M7 servers. Never install a SPARC M8 power supply in a SPARC M7 server, and never install a SPARC M7 power supply in the SPARC M8-8 server.
