"BMC Restoring...Please Do Not Shutdown or PowerCycle system!"

I've seen this message on a DL160 G5 and eventually it resolved itself after 45 minutes or so. There was no indication of how long this process would take or of its progress. The server crashed (W2K3)and it was recycled using the power button. Has anyone come across this issue?

Thanks, it resolved itself after about an hour or so but BMC logs showed nothing. I will update Lights Out accordingly.

If you continue to have this problem remove and reseat the CMOS battery. This was suggested by an HP engineer and worked for me.
