>I have an Ultra 1 (170E) in my office that I use as a hardware test-station and 
install server. The CPU fan has been acting up recently to the point where it 
sometimes stops and has to be restarted by hand. To counter this I've been 
leaving the system turned off when not under direct supervision.
>I just wanted to say that Sun have sent me a (user-installable) replacement fan 
under FCO #A0089-1. Some people have reported that this FCO is inactive - so 
perhaps it depends on the FE who picks up the call. FWIW my system isn't under 
Sun contract support.
>Thank-you Sun.
