Issues with cpqasm event 4111 - EAAS "Restart" Issue

Hello All,

First of all, I've had a good read of most threads I could find on this topic and I don't believe that this question has been answered yet!

Had an issue recently where an AC failure caused one of our servers to overheat and initiate an EAAS Over Critial Temp Shutdown. The shutdown went according to plan... except that it wasn't really a shutdown, but a restart!

The box kept restarting, figuring out it was too hot, sending the restart, restarting, figuring it was still too hot, restarting...

What I'm after is a way to change this EAAS "restart" into a shutdown, so that if the temperature exceeds the critical temperature, the box shuts down and STAYS down until someone assesses the situation and determines that it's OK to restart it.

Here are some of the event log entries:

===================================

===================================

So... is there a way of changing that shutdown type from "restart" in Event Log #3 to shutdown to achieve my goal?

Thanks in Advance,
Tim
