ILO poweroff problem

Hi all, this is my first post in ITRC.

I have two DL-360 G2 server with RedHat 5 installed.

I have a problem with ILO2, when I request a poweroff the server is powered down but after 30sec the server is autonomously powered on. Instead if I launch a shutdown from linux (shutdown -h now) the server stay powered off.

ILO firmware is updated to last rel. 1.42 .

Thanks to all and sorry for my english.
Davide.

Re: ILO poweroff problem

Check Virtual Devices-> Virtual Power and that the "Automatically Power On Server is set to "No".

DL360 G2 is an iLO1 server. The latest fw for iLO1 is 1.91.

Thanks for your reply!

Sorry but servers are a pair of DL-365 G2 and not DL-360, I mistyped.

I checked the setting and "Automatically Power On Server" is yet set to NO.

Re: ILO poweroff problem

Some questions:

Can you confirm what iLO firmware you are using on this host? iLO 2 v1.42 or later?

How do you request a shutoff? Browser/command line/OS/other ? What type of shutoff are you using? For example, there is a restart option, and what user interface are you using?

Can you check the iLO event log to see information related to the nature of the shutoff/restart and if iLO was used to initiate it. There can be other power-on triggers such as wake-on-LAN, etc.
