DL380 G4: Automatic start when connecting power supply

How will I know if a server starts automatically when I connect the power supply?

We have to reset a server completely by shutting it down und disconnect power suppy, which should be done remote. We have to do so becauce the iLO board is not accessible and probably not configured.

We'd now like to know if the server starts automatically when switching power supply on (remotely) or if we have to stay in the computing center and push the power button manually. Some servers do so, some don't - how will I know?

Re: DL380 G4: Automatic start when connecting power supply

There is a BIOS setting that controls that. It should be under the power management section in the BIOS and the name is something like "Power status after power loss", and the settings also vary but usually you have three choices.
1. Always power on
2. Always power off.
3. Same state as before the power loss.

Re: DL380 G4: Automatic start when connecting power supply

I have the same problem, but I do not locate the option that is indicated in this post.
I only see the option Server Availability with the submenus (Wake-On LAN and Automatic Power-On). Can You help me?.
