Power Control Policies
In Oracle ILOM 3.1, the following power features are enabled for Oracle x86 servers.
Table 32 Power Control Policies for Oracle x86 Servers
Remote Power Control
Configure the power state for the server remotely from an Oracle
ILOM interface. Available power states include:
Removing power from the system
Shutting down the system gracefully
Powering on the system with full power
For instructions on performing these operations, see
“Configuring Host Server Management Actions” in Oracle ILOM 3.1 Configuration and Maintenance Guide.
The service processor (SP) Power-On Policies determine
the power state of the server when AC power is applied to the
server (cold boot). Service processor Power-On Policies are mutually exclusive, so that if
one policy is enabled, the other policy is disabled by default. If both
policies are disabled, then the server SP will not apply main power to
the server at boot time.
The two power-on policies are:
Auto Power-On Host on Boot – When this option is enabled, the SP automatically applies main power to the server. When disabled (default), main power is not applied to the server.
Set Host Power to Last Power State on Boot – When this option is enabled, the SP automatically tracks the last power state and restores the server to this last power state following a power state change of at least 10 seconds. When disabled (default) the last power state is not applied to the server.
For instructions on
how to set the Power-On Policies, refer to “System Management Policies Configurable From
Server SP” in Oracle ILOM 3.1 Configuration and Maintenance Guide.
