Goal

Broadcom Emulex Connectivity Division has not established the SFP+ Optical Transceiver for the Oracle branded Emulex Dual 32Gbps Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapter (HBA) as an orderable spare.

Replacement of a failed or failing SFP+ Optical Transceiver can be performed while the server is online and takes less than a minute.

Replacement of a Fibre Channel HBA is very disruptive, typically requires server downtime, as well as changes to SAN switch zoning and storage array host group configurations.

This document establishes an Oracle approved strategy to replace a failed or failing SFP+ Optical Transceiver with one from a replacement Oracle branded Emulex Dual 32Gbps Fibre Channel HBA, Part number: 7335907.
