2.6 Powering Off the Server
Many service procedures require you to remove main power from the server. To remove
main power from the server, use one of the methods described in the
Table 2-1 Shutdown Procedures
Press and release the Power button on the front panel. Pressing
the Power button causes Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI)-enabled operating systems to
perform an orderly shutdown of the operating system. Servers not running ACPI-enabled operating systems
will shut down to standby power mode immediately. When the main power is
off, the Power/OK LED on the front panel flashes slowly, indicating that the
server is in standby power mode.
Note - The Power/OK LED might flash several times
at 1 Hz to indicate that power-off is going to occur soon. Main
power is still on during this 1-Hz flashing.
Press and hold the Power button
for at least five seconds until the main power is off and the
server enters standby power mode. When the main power is off, the Power/OK
LED on the front panel flashes slowly, indicating that the server is in standby
Caution - All applications and the operating system will be closed abruptly without
saving changes. Data loss or corruption might occur.

Power Off the Server Using the Service Processor Command-Line Interface
You can use the Oracle ILOM service processor (SP) to perform a graceful
shutdown of the server and ensure that all of your data is saved
and the server is ready for restart. For additional information, refer to the
Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) 3.1 Documentation Library at http://www.oracle.com/pls/topic/lookup?ctx=ilom31.
- Log in as root. Type:
Password: root_password (The default password is changeme.)
The ILOM command-line interface (CLI) prompt appears (->).
Depending on the type of problem, you might want to view server status
or log files, or run diagnostics before you shut down the server.
- Power down the server. Type:
-> stop /SYS (for a Graceful shutdown as defined in Shutdown Procedures )
-> stop -f /SYS (for an Emergency Shut as defined in Shutdown Procedures )
