DL380G4 and MSA1000 boot order from power restore

We have one of the packaged "cluster" solutions with 2 identical DL380 G4 nodes and an MSA1000 storage controller which is essentially running in a lights-out facility. We do have occasional power outages that exceed the limit of our UPSs. When the power is restored, the DL380s boot up more quickly than the MSA1000, so they don't see the storage at all. Is there a way of delaying the booting of the DL380s until after the MSA1000 is fully operational? Thanks, Adrian

That's certainly worth a try, thanks! Pity the delay doesn't go above 60 seconds, but I won't know until I give it a try whether this will be long enough to give the MSA1000 the headstart that it needs... thanks again, Adrian
