Servicing System Module (SMOD) Components (FRU)

This section describes how to service System Modules (SMODs) and SMOD components. Two SMODs are located at the back of the server. The following topics and procedures provide information to assist you when removing and installing SMODs and SMOD components:

SMODs are field-replaceable units (FRUs). A customer can remove and insert SMODs to access internal components that are designated CRUs. For more information about FRUs, see Illustrated Parts Breakdown and Field-Replaceable Units. For component serviceability, locations, and designations, see Replaceable Components. See System Module (SMOD) Overview.


Caution  -  SMODs should be removed and replaced only by authorized Oracle Service personnel.


Caution  -  These procedures require that you handle components that are sensitive to electrostatic discharge. This sensitivity can cause the components to fail. To avoid damage, ensure that you follow antistatic practices as described in Electrostatic Discharge and Static Prevention Measures.
