Last updated on JULY 31, 2019

Applies to:

Sun Storage 6140 Array - Version All Versions and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
This document applies exclusively to the Sun Storage 6140 array. No other arrays in the Sun Storage 6000 product family are included.


Oracle has now qualified the Power Supply Unit (PSU) of the 6140 Storage Array as a Customer Replaceable Unit (CRU). The part has been promoted to CRU status (previously a FRU, or Field Replaceable Unit) due to the ease and safety of the replacement procedure as well as the availability of guidance for system administrators in the Sun Storage Common Array Manager (CAM) Service Advisor. See Oracle's Data Sheet for more information on our CRU strategy.

The complete list of hardware (by product) upgraded to CRU may be found at the Customer Replaceable Unit (CRU) information page. The complete set of 6140 array documentation may be found here.

The Part numbers for the affected Power Supply Unit's may be viewed in the Sun System Handbook for the 6140. They are:


 The Sun Storage Common Array Manager (CAM) software will generate an alarm in the event of a Power Supply / Fan failure.  See <Document 1021103.1> Sun Storage 6000 Arrays and Sun StorageTek 2500 Arrays: Troubleshooting Power Supply and Fan Failures. The applicable 6140 alarms are identified below.

If the Automatic Service Request (ASR) feature of CAM is enabled, a service request will be automatically opened and routed to the appropriate analyst to assist with shipment of the CRU.  Other options include Oracle's Rapid SR (performed completely without analyst assistance), or manually opening a service request in the Customer Support Portal.

Upon receipt of the part, you will use the Service Advisor utility within CAM to perform the work. CAM provides the complete set of instructions and diagrams to locate and replace the failed unit.  To obtain the latest version of CAM see  <Document 1296274.1> How to Download Common Array Manager (CAM) Software and Patches
