Power Down the Server for Immediate Shutdown
Caution - This procedure quickly forces the server's main power off. You might corrupt your
system data during an immediate power-down, so use this procedure to power down the
server only after attempting the graceful power-down procedure.
- 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 begins
flashing, indicating that the server is in standby power mode. See Server General Status Indicators.
- Disconnect the power and data cables from the server.
See Disconnect Cables From the Server.
Caution - When you press 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 power cords from the
back of the power supplies.
