Caution

Caution  -  Any unsupported configuration causes the host to power off as soon as it is powered on. A fault is generated on the service processor when an unsupported configuration is detected. The fault clears after the unsupported configuration is fixed and the host is powered on.



Note -  Refer to your server product notes for up-to date information on supported servers, operating systems, and required patchsets.
