Simple iLO question

Hi All,

 

Can someone please tell how can I remotely shutdown the server and then turn it on whenever I want using iLO?

 

I am using iLO2 and iLO3 on two different servers.

 

in iLO power options i can see buttons for: Momentary Press, Press & Hold, Cold Boot and Reset.

 

None of these button shutsdown the server and then turns it on on user`s requirement. Please correct me if I am wrong.

 

many thanks

Re: Simple iLO question

If the OS is ACPI aware, momentary press should do a gracefull shutdown.

Press and Hold will force the server to power off.

Cold boot is like removing power and restarting.

Reset is like a warm boot

 

I use these features daily on various servers using iLO2 and iLO3

Re: Simple iLO question

Could this behavior be altered with a BIOS setting change?
On our bl460c with RHEL it shuts down with press/hold probably momentary press. We have the default BIOS settings.
