This photo story is about a motherboard replacement in an Exadata X2-2 database server (Sun Fire X4170 M2).
While setting up a half rack Exadata system, we discovered a problem with the motherboard in database server 4, so we got ourselves a new one. Even for an internal system, I had to log an SR, get our hardware team to review the diagnostics and have them confirm that a new motherboard is required. I had a full customer experience with me being both the customer and Support Engineer! Anyway, a replacement motherboard arrived the next day.
We stopped the clusterware (more...)
