Servicing Processors (FRU)


Caution  -  Processors should be removed and replaced only by authorized Oracle Service personnel.


Caution  - Ensure that all power is removed from the server before removing or installing a processor. You must disconnect the power cables from the server before performing these procedures.


Caution  -  These procedures require that you handle components that are sensitive to electrostatic discharge. This sensitivity can cause the components to fail. To avoid damage, ensure that you follow antistatic practices as described in Electrostatic Discharge Safety.


Caution  -  The green processor removal and replacement tool (part number G29477-002 or later) must be used to remove and replace a processor; otherwise, the processor or the processor socket might be damaged. Additionally, do not use a tool that is designed for earlier generations of Intel processors (CPUs). If you use an earlier generation tool, the processor will only be partially held by the tool and it could fall from the tool, which could damage the processor socket.

Note - On single-processor systems, neither a heatsink nor a processor filler cover are installed in the processor socket 1 (P1). To protect the delicate processor socket pins, the cover that comes on the motherboard from manufacturing is left in place.

These procedure are provided in this section:
