Goal

Capturing FRUID through Oracle Explorer Data Collector seems to be somewhat of an art. FRUID capture can help Oracle identify issues from known FRU's that are affected by a Sun Alert or an FCO.

FRUID stands for "Field Replaceable Unit IDentification", i.e. data kept in a memory chip on the replaceable parts to record a part's history of installations and faults.

Capture rate is rather low for systems capable of gathering FRUID. Here are some tips and tricks to gather the FRUID output when running Sun Explorer. FRUID is available on High End Sun Fire[TM] 12K/15K/E20K/E25K Servers, Midrange Sun Fire[TM] x800/Ex900 Servers and all other Ultra Sparc III or better systems.

This document has become obsolete for all properly maintained installations. It is here for older, not properly maintained installations and because it is linked from other documents.
