Virtual power-off on DL145 G2 (Opteron)

We recently purchased three DL145 G2 (Opteron) servers and although I can access iLO fine on the dedicated iLO interface and watch all kinds of fun readings I am unable to trigger any power event on any of these servers.

Documentation says that virtual power on/off is a standard feature, the option is there but toggling it, either from the web interface or the telnet one does nothing for me. I don't know if there is anything you are supposed to do make virtual power off/on work as advertised but I can't find any information suggesting that I have to do _anything_.

I'd appreciate any insight into why this is.

Kind Regards,

Shalom Peter,

You didn't mention what document you used, here is another few possibilities.

Your 1st and 3rd link point to the same resource and your second one gives a 404. However, the documentation in question followed with the server and I also double checked online to be sure there was support for this particular feature. And your resource suggest that there is indeed virtual power on/off for the DL145 G2.

However, as stated, nothing happens when I try to toggle power on/off. Using the telnet interface there is a noticable delay ~2 seconds, but no action, and nothing indicating a failure. It's simply ignoring the request to power off or power on.

Further on, there is no sign of anything happening when I perform "p[ower] on/off" in the event log. Trying to toggle power from the web interface returns instantely without error or confirmation of action.
