Caution - The correct color-coded processor removal and replacement tool 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.
Selecting the correct processor removal and replacement tool is a two-step process. First you determine the size of the processor that is being replaced, then you select the removal and replacement tool that fits that size.
Use Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (Oracle ILOM) 3.2.x to display processor information.
For instructions, refer to the Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) 3.2 Documentation Library at http://www.oracle.com/goto/ilom/docs.
Visually check the size of the processor installed in the controller.
This requires that you remove the processor heatsink and open the independent loading mechanism (ILM) assembly that holds the processor in the socket. For instructions, see Remove a Processor. This is the same procedure that you will use when you remove the processor.
The following figure shows an 18-core processor installed. Notice that the right and left edges of the processor extend beyond the boundaries of the processor alignment brackets.

The tool for the 18-core processors is color-coded pink, as shown in the following figure.
Figure 11 Color-Coded Processor Removal and Replacement Tool
Caution - The pink color-coded processor removal and replacement tool must be used only for 18-core processors; otherwise, the processor or the processor socket might be damaged.
