Updates for the Oracle Server X7-2 Service Manual

In the Oracle Server X7-2 Service Manual (E72445-01) that was published on the Oracle Documentation web site, the document provided incorrect information in the following sections.

Populating DIMMs for Optimal System Performance

The first two bullets in the population guidelines are incorrect. They should be replaced with the following corrected content:

  • In single-processor systems, populate DIMMs of the same size in multiples of six.

  • In dual-processor systems, populate DIMMs of the same size in multiples of twelve.

This correction has been made in subsequent releases of the Service Manual (E72445-02 and later).

DIMM Operating Speeds

The information in this section is incorrect and should be replaced with the following corrected content:

The maximum supported memory speed is 2667 MT/s. However, not all system configurations will support operation at this speed. The maximum attainable memory speed is limited by the maximum speed supported by the specific type of processor. All memory installed in the system operates at the same speed, or frequency.

This correction has been made in subsequent releases of the Service Manual (E72445-02 and later).

Removing and Replacing an NVMe Storage Drive Using Oracle Linux

The information in the following steps in "Verify Removal of an NVMe Storage Drive" is incorrect and should be replaced with the following corrected content:

  • Step 1: To check the NVMe drive enumeration to verify that NVMe drive has been removed, type:

    # lspci -nnd :0a54

  • Step 2: View the command output and verify that the entry for the slot number that was disabled no longer appears.

    This commands returns output similar to the following:

    86:00.0 Non-Volatile memory controller [0108]: Intel Corporation Device [8086:0a54]
    8d:00.0 Non-Volatile memory controller [0108]: Intel Corporation Device [8086:0a54]
    d9:00.0 Non-Volatile memory controller [0108]: Intel Corporation Device [8086:0a54]
    e0:00.0 Non-Volatile memory controller [0108]: Intel Corporation Device [8086:0a54]

This correction has been made in subsequent releases of the Service Manual (E72445-04 and later).

Install a Processor

The information in the following steps has been updated and replaced with the following corrected content:

  • Step 3: Use the syringe supplied with the new or replacement processor [1] to apply 0.3 cc of thermal interface material (TIM) in an "X" pattern to the processor contact area of the heatsink [2].

  • Step 4f: Using a 12.0 in-lbs (inch-pounds) torque driver (part number 7352217) with a Torx T30 bit, tighten the processor-heatsink module to the socket. First, fully tighten captive nuts 1 and 2. Then fully tighten nuts 3 and 4 [2].

This correction has been made in subsequent releases of the Service Manual (E72445-05 and later).

BIOS Advanced Menu Oracle Dual Port 10Gb/25Gb SFP28 Ethernet Controller Options

The Service Manual incorrectly shows the "LLDP nearest bridge" and "LLDP nearest non-TPMR bridge" values as being Disabled by default. These Ethernet controller options are Enabled by default.

This correction has been made in subsequent releases of the Service Manual (E72445-08 and later).

Entire Document

The NET0 Ethernet port speed is incorrect. The NET0 Ethernet port speed should be 100/1000BASE-T.

This correction has been made in subsequent releases of the Service Manual (E72445-09 and later).

DIMM and Processor Physical Layout

This section should include the following memory channels table.

This table has been added in subsequent releases of the Service Manual (E72445-09 and later).

Network Management Port Status Indicators

The location information for the Activity and Link Speed status indicator locations are incorrect and should be replaced with the following corrected content.

Status Indicator Name

This correction has been made in subsequent releases of the Service Manual (E72445-09 and later).
