Controlling Host Power to Server or Blade System Chassis

Oracle ILOM provides a set of parameters that enables system administrators to control the power state of a host server or a blade chassis system.

System administrators can issue power control commands from the Oracle ILOM CLI or web interface. For more details about each power control command, see the following table.


Note -  For Oracle multi-domain server systems, you can control the power state on individual server domains.
