Key Identity Properties (KIP) Automated Update

Oracle ILOM includes a key identity properties (KIP) auto-update feature that ensures product information that is used for service entitlement and warranty coverage is accurately maintained by the server at all times, including during hardware replacement activities.

The KIP includes the server product name, product part number (PPN), and product serial number (PSN). The KIP is stored in the replaceable unit identifiers) container of the three server replaceable units that are designated quorum members.

The quorum members include:

  • Disk backplane (DBP), designated as a primary quorum member.

  • Motherboard (MB), designated as a backup quorum member.

  • Power supply (PS), designated as a backup quorum member.

When you remove and replace a server FRU that contains the KIP, Oracle ILOM programs the KIP of the replacement component to contain the same KIP as the other two components.

Note -  Replace only one quorum member at a time. Automated updates are completed only when two of the three quorum members contain matching key identity properties.
