Power Down Server For an Emergency
Caution - This task quickly forces the server’s main power off. You might corrupt your
system data during an emergency power down, so only use this task to
power down the server after attempting the graceful power down tasks.
- Press and hold the power button for four seconds to force the main power
off and to enter standby power mode.
When main power is off, the power OK LED on the front
panel will begin flashing, indicating that the server is in standby power mode. See
System Status LEDs.
- Disconnect the power and data cables from the server.
See Disconnect Cables From the Server.
Caution - When you use the Power button to enter standby power mode, power is still
directed to the service processor remote management subsystem and power supply fans. To
completely power off the server, you must disconnect the AC or DC power
cords from the back of the power supplies.
