Servicing Processors (FRU)

The following section describes how to service processors. Processors are field-replaceable units (FRUs). For more information about FRUs, see Illustrated Parts Breakdown and Field-Replaceable Units.


Caution  -  Processors must be removed and replaced only by authorized Oracle Service personnel.


Caution  -  Ensure that all power is removed from the server before removing or installing a processor. You must disconnect the power cables from the system before performing these procedures.


Caution  -  These procedures require that you handle components that are sensitive to electrostatic discharge. This sensitivity can cause the component to fail. To avoid damage, ensure that you follow electrostatic discharge safety measures and antistatic practices. See Electrostatic Discharge Safety.

Note -  On single-processor systems, processor socket 1 (P1) is shipped without a heatsink and processor filler cover. To protect the delicate processor socket pins, do not remove the processor cover that was installed on the motherboard.
