No auto boot on power restore?

Greetings all,

 

We have 3 HP Dl 380 G7's clustered running ESXi 5.0 U3 with LeftHand SAN. We would like to make sure these 3 servers NEVER auto-restart when power has been restored after a power fail event. Ideally, we would access remotely via the ILO and power on when the ISCSi network is up and available.

 

I don't see anything in the ILO, other than auto start or delay,  but this is not the functionality we desire. And in the BIOS, the Automatic Power on setting when disabled says it will restore power to its previous state??!

 

Can this be done on the server (preferred) or should we be looking at the attached UPS functionality?

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Buddy

 

UPDATE: The link below would seem to indicate this could not be done in a G4 server, has this changed in the G7's?

Again, thanks.

You should have three options :

 

Always Power ON

Always Remain OFF

Restore Last Power State

Thanks Jimmy!

 

Where...in the ILO or BIOS?

Re: No auto boot on power restore?

It is in RBSU (BIOS) under 'Server Availability' - 'Automatic Power-On'
