Virtual Power - Automatically Power on Server

First off, hponcfg.exe is awesome. So much better than making changes manually.

One thing I have not been able to find is an option that I started seeing on some G3 ilo boards. On the Virtual Devices, Virtual Power, there is a Automatically Power On Server option (bottom of attached picture). By default this is set to off. When set to on, if power is lost and then turned back on, the server will power itself up. This is a saving grace with UPS shutdowns since we haven't found a way to turn them back on.

Anyone know the command to use with hponcfg.exe? Thankfully, this power on option is now standard in G4 Servers' BIOS, so I'll just have to do this on any existing G3 servers.

The setting is buried under the blade/rack configuration stuff. A script like this allows you to set it. The parent is in the "mod_blade_rack.xml" example.

Awesome, thanks! I had a hunch it was in there, but wasn't too sure.
