Power Cycle the System

If a simple reset does not clear a system problem, you can power the system off and on with this procedure.

  1. Shut down the Solaris OS.

    At the Solaris OS prompt, type the shutdown -g0 -i0 -y command. Then type h when prompted to halt the Solaris OS and to return to the ok prompt.

    # shutdown -g0 -i0 -y
    # svc.startd: The system is coming down.  Please wait.
    svc.startd: 91 system services are now being stopped.
    Jun 12 19:46:57 wgs40-58 syslogd: going down on signal 15
    svc.startd: The system is down.
    syncing file systems... done
    Program terminated
    r)eboot, o)k prompt, h)alt? 
  2. Switch from the system console prompt to the service processor console prompt by issuing the console escape sequence (by default, #. (Pound-Period)).
    ok #.
  3. Using the ILOM CLI, type the stop /SYS command to perform a graceful shutdown of the system.
    -> stop /SYS 
    Are you sure you want to stop /SYS (y/n)? y 
    Stopping /SYS 

    Note - To perform an immediate and ungraceful shutdown, use the stop -force -script /SYS or stop -script /SYS commands. These commands stop everything immediately, ensure that all data is saved before entering these commands.

  4. Type the start /SYS command.
    -> start /SYS 
    Are you sure you want to start /SYS (y/n)? y 
    Starting /SYS 

    Note - To force a power-on sequence, use the start -script /SYS command.

  5. Reconnect to the system console with the start /SP/console command.
    -> start /SP/console 
    Are you sure you want to start /SP/console (y/n)? y 
    Serial console started.  To stop, type #. 

    The systems displays various messages, followed by the ok prompt.

After powering on the system for the first time, you can use Oracle’s Sun Validation Test Suite (SunVTS) software to verify the functionality and performance of any installed components, as well as its network connections. Refer to the SunVTS documentation at for more information.

For more information on using the ILOM service processor, refer to the Integrated Lights Out Manager 3.0 Supplement for the Sun SPARC Enterprise T5440 Server.
