DL 380G5 Shut down

Have 3 new DL380G5 servers running Windows 2003 Sp2 with all patch's and firmware updates. I setup the servers with Smart Start 7.80. These are fresh installs with no other applications installed. On all 3 servers if you choose shutdown in windows the server will reboot vs power off

Re: DL 380G5 Shut down

Maybe you are having a error message during shutdown that you cannot see becuase the default action is to reboot.

In System properties, Advanced, Startup And Recovery, Disable "Automatically Restart"

Re: DL 380G5 Shut down

This got me started in the right direction. After disabling the auto restart it showed a blue screen with a 0x0000007e error on shut down. I found this forum entry http://forums1.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=1128223

In this discussion the poster downgraded the nic driver and it fixed the issue. I did the same thing and on all 3 servers the issue was resolved.
