Install the Motherboard Assembly

  1. Attach an antistatic wrist strap to your wrist, and then to a metal area on the chassis.

    See Take Antistatic Measures.

  2. Carefully lift and place the motherboard assembly into the chassis [1].

    While holding the motherboard mid-wall, tilt the motherboard to the right side to fit it under the power supply assembly, then level the motherboard and place it into the server chassis. Slide the motherboard to the back of the server to engage the raised standoffs.


    Caution  -  Be careful not to damage the rear Locate Button/LED when placing the motherboard into the chassis.

  3. Using a Torx T25 screwdriver, tighten the two captive screws to secure the motherboard mid-wall to the chassis [2].
  4. Reconnect the following cables to the motherboard:

  5. Reinstall the following components:


    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.

  6. If present, install the Oracle Storage 12 Gb SAS PCIe RAID HBA, Internal card and its associated super capacitor.

    See Install the Internal HBA Card and HBA Super Capacitor.

    Note -  Before you install the HBA super capacitor, install the HBA super capacitor tray by squeezing the plastic hinges together and inserting the tray into the chassis.
  7. Return the server to operation.
    1. Install the server top cover.

      See Install the Server Top Cover.

    2. Return the server to the normal rack position.

      See Return the Server to the Normal Rack Position.

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

      See Reconnect Power and Data Cables and Power On the Server.

    4. Verify that the power supply AC OK LED is lit.

    Note -  IMPORTANT: After replacing the motherboard, you might need to manually program the product serial number (PSN) into the new motherboard. This is necessary because the motherboard is a secondary member of a select group (or quorum) of components used for maintaining the PSN for service entitlement, and if you replace more than one of the quorum members during any given service procedure, a secondary quorum member might need to be programmed with the PSN. See FRU Key Identity Properties (KIP) Automated Update.
