Soft Power down with DL360 G2 and Server 2003

Soft Power down with DL360 G2 and Server 2003

Under Windows 2000 I could push the power button on my DL360 G2s and Windows would do a quick but controlled power down. After I loaded (not upgraded) the servers to 2003 (5/14/03 BIOS and PSP 6.30) the power button does not tell Windows to shut down. It will only do a hard power off if I hold it in long enough.

Is this a know problem with PSP 6.30 and Server 2003?

Hi Derek,

Did you ever get this resolved as I have the same exact issue on my Proliant ML370 G2s and DL360 G1s?

Many thanks

Is this a new "feature" of Windows 2003? Possibly to prevent the server from going down accidentally?
The truth is out there, but I forgot the URL..

Exactly what I think.

Problem is that I can't find any reference in Technet.
