6.9.6. Stopping an Oracle VM Server

When you stop an Oracle VM Server, it is stopped using the Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI), or a system power off command. Before you can stop an Oracle VM Server, you must stop any running virtual machines, or place the Oracle VM Server into maintenance mode to automatically migrate the running virtual machines.


Make sure that the IPMI is properly configured on the Oracle VM Server, otherwise it cannot be started again remotely. See Section 6.9.4, “Editing Oracle VM Server Information” for IPMI configuration.

Alternatively, make sure that the Oracle VM Server are on the same subnet and activate the Wake-on-LAN (WOL) feature in the Oracle VM Server BIOS. If an Oracle VM Server cannot start through IPMI or WOL, it must be power-cycled manually.

To stop an Oracle VM Server:

  1. Stop or migrate any running virtual machines. To stop the virtual machines see Section 7.9.5, “Shutting Down a Virtual Machine”. To automatically migrate the virtual machines to other Oracle VM Servers in the server pool, place the Oracle VM Server into maintenance mode , see Section 6.9.9, “Placing an Oracle VM Server into Maintenance Mode” .

  2. In the Home view, select the Oracle VM Server in the navigation pane. Select Stop Server from the Actions menu.

The Oracle VM Server is powered off.
