DL 160 power up without pushing power button

I need to power up and down DL 160 1000 times.
For this task, I connected the system to relay timer. However, I need to push the button for power up. Is there a way disable pushing button
sequence?

Re: DL 160 power up without pushing power button

Use the iLO port for remote power on/off without pushing the button:

HP Lights-Out 100i Standard Features
Remote Serial Console The standard LO100i provides access to the host server's serial, text-based console over an Ethernet network. From the operating system-independent console you can access BIOS and POST screens during startup as well as Microsoft Emergency Management Services on systems running Windows Server 2003 and 2008 and serial tty sessions on systems running Linux operating systems.

Virtual Power Button Using a supported browser interface or command line, HP Lights-Out 100i can be used to remotely operate the power button of a host. For example, if the host server is off, you can turn it on from HP Lights-Out 100i. You can also power off and on the server in one step.
