Hi All,

Sorry for the late summary, but I just got my vendor ( to
replace the CPU. [Excellent Vendor BTW!!! I highly recommend them to
anyone looking to buy a sun stuff for cheap]. Anyways, I want to thank:

NetComrade <>
Michael Horton <>
Musa Williams <>

In addition to my mail here at sunmanagers, I cross-posted the same
question to comp.unix.solaris which also had some "very" good reponses
to my question (Some from a few sun folks)

Here is the thread: [1]

For more info about the error:
 WARNING: [AFT1] EDP event on CPU8 Instruction access at TL=0, errID
     AFSR 0x00000000.80400020<PRIV,EDP> AFAR 0x00000000.ff0f9258

Please see the above thread for more responses. The response from this
list was also excellent with about a 50/50 split on what to do next.
>From what I understand, Sun's policy on this if it happens once is to
log it and monitor it. They would replace it if this happens more than
once in 6 months. Other recommended me to seek replacement. I did the
latter and am a happy camper now with a sparkling new CPU :)

Some very good links:

If anyone here running (or planning to run ) Sun Enterprise eXX00, then 
you have to get a copy of Sun Enterprise xx00 Problem Solving Manual with 
Sun Part # 910-4188. This pdf comes with a warning: "Sun Proprietary/Confidential: 
Internal Use Only" so unfortunately I cannot post any links to it. 
Excellent resource!!
