Last updated on SEPTEMBER 22, 2014

Applies to:

Sun Netra 1290 Server - Version Not Applicable and later
Sun Netra 1280 Server - Version Not Applicable and later
Sun Fire V1280 Server - Version Not Applicable and later
Sun Fire E2900 Server - Version Not Applicable and later
All Platforms

Symptoms

It is possible when upgrading the firmware in a V1280/E2900 or Netra 1280/1290 platform using the 'lom -G' command to end up with a mismatch of RTOS and ScApp. 

The mismatch will result in the SC's inability to boot and run System Controller Application, preventing the SC from managing the platform.
