Purpose

To discuss this information further with Oracle experts and industry peers, we encourage you to review, join or start a discussion in an appropriate
My Oracle Support Community - Oracle Sun Technologies Community.

 

 

The purpose of this document is to familiarise support engineers with the inner workings of the power grids within a Sun Fire [TM] SF4800/SF6800/E4900/E6900 rack in order to assist in troubleshooting an observed power issue. It will focus on power grids in general, and the RTU enclosure in particular. Along the way, we will mention the AC Input Boxes, the Rack Fan Trays, the Frame Manager, Power Centerplane, and various internal breakers and switches that are capable of shutting off power to specific areas in the rack, including to any installed disk arrays such as a D240. An astute engineer with knowledge of the power layout within the rack will quickly home in on the cause of any sectioned power losses. Such sectioned power losses could occur within the Sun Fire [TM] SF4800/SF6800/E4900/E6900 chassis which contains the main circuit boards of the server, or outside the chassis but within the rack (peripheral trays, etc).
