DL380 G3 Auto-turn on

(Hi, sorry if this is a naive question.) I manage a couple of these servers at a location where the power may fail, and access is difficult. Is there some way to make them start automatically when the power returns? (It's a long way to drive, just to press a button and I don't have ILO implemented). Thanks. Chris, Cambridge UK.

Re: DL380 G3 Auto-turn on

Hi Chris,

Question regards to Auto-turn ON , when power fails,..?

some Questions also for you to consider?

when power returns if the server has Crash due some hardware failure server doesn't come up.?

someone should eye -ball onsite , i mean the Data Center Operators..?

or best thing to approach for "Console access" by assing a "Static IP" for all you server's via Network so that you may gain Console access when power returns. well the ILO implemented would better with web-console access,

Thx,
Johnson

Re: DL380 G3 Auto-turn on

Thanks for your very prompt reply, Johnson. The servers are at an unmanned site. Of course, it's possible they won't come back up cleanly when the power returns - but a problem like that is worth a trip, whereas a power outage just a bit too long for the UPS to hold up isn't.

The servers have static IP addresses, so I can view the logs remotely.

The question is, is there a BIOS parameter or motherboard switch that I can set to turn the server on automatically, when the power returns?

Re: DL380 G3 Auto-turn on

hi

I suppose your server don't have ilo enable
anyway

there is an option on RSBU (BIOS).
- Server Availability
- Automatic Power On
- Enable

"Automatic Power-On
The Automatic Power-On feature enables the server to automatically power on when auxiliary power is applied to the server."


also if you have ilo you can enable it on power management

bye
Didn't your momma teach you to say thanks!

Re: DL380 G3 Auto-turn on

well, I would prefer ILO implementation, by enabling the power management,

Thanks,
