Hardware Error-Handling Overview

    The Oracle VM Server for SPARC software adds the following RAS capabilities for the SPARC enterprise-class platforms starting with the SPARC T5, SPARC M5, and SPARC S7 series server:

  • Fault Management Architecture (FMA) blacklisting. When FMA detects faulty CPU or memory resources, Oracle VM Server for SPARC places them on a blacklist. A faulty resource that is on the blacklist cannot be reassigned to any domains until FMA marks it as being repaired.

  • Recovery mode. Automatically recover SP configurations that cannot be booted because of faulty or missing resources.

The Fujitsu SPARC M12 platform and Fujitsu M10 platform also support recovery mode. While the blacklisting of faulty resources is not supported, the Fujitsu SPARC M12 platform and Fujitsu M10 platform auto-replacement feature provides similar functionality.
