C7000 Blades: NO automatic power on

Stephan was looking to manage blade power-on sequence:

 

******************

 

For a planned data center power outage, we want to prevent all of the blades to power on automatically when power is available again ?

 

I first thought this could be achieved through “Power on Sequence” -> NO Poweron, but I learned that this flag will be cleared after power on sequence for the other blades.

 

Any idea how to set this. Most preferable via CLI …

You can do this from the iLO Web Interface.

 

If you want to script it for all the servers, instead of doing it one by one, You can execute the script below from the OA CLI:

 

 

HPONCFG ALL << end_marker

                <RIBCL VERSION="2.0">

                                <LOGIN USER_LOGIN="DontCare" PASSWORD="UsingAutoLogin">

                                                <SERVER_INFO mode="Write">

                                                                <SERVER_AUTO_PWR value="No"/>

                                                </SERVER_INFO>

                                </LOGIN>

                </RIBCL>

end_marker

 

***************

 

Would you do this another way? Comments or suggestions?

Is there any other way to accomplish not powering on a given blade in the chassis?

This should work:

 

# sign in to OA using SSH

 

SET SERVER POWERDELAY ALL NOPOWERON
