how to change automatic power-up delay for bl460c/680c?

we recently suffered a power failure at our core data centre which was exacebated by the fact all servers tried to come up at once.

we have a mixture of about 170 bl460c and bl680c blades at this particular datacentre in 14 c7000 enclosures.

how can i alter the automatic power-up boot sequence so that the DC blades come up first, then the SQL blades, and then the rest of the blades ?

thanks

Re: how to change automatic power-up delay for bl460c/680c?

aah, ok. so its not possible on c-class blades.

Is there any way to ask for this to be included in new firmware updates?

It's quite a useful feature that has been removed.

Hi Lloyd,

The latest Version of the OA contains this feature.

If you login to the OA GUI under Enclosure Information there is new page Device Power Sequence. You can enter the delay there.
The amount of delay, in seconds, before the device powers on. Possible delay values are 1 to 3600.

So that the DC blades come up first, then the SQL blades.

Download the Latest 2.25 OA from below link:

OA version 2.25:
From the CLI to set power delay the command is:

SET SERVER POWERDELAY { ALL | [{- | ,} ] } { number of
seconds to delay power | NOPOWERON }: Sets the PowerDelay status for the specified server or range of servers. If the delay is zero, the delay has no effect on the device. If the delay in NOPOWERON, the device cannot poweron until
all devices have completed their delays.
