Power Off, Graceful (Power Button)

Note -  This procedure is performed locally and requires physical access to the server front panel.

Use this procedure when you are at the server to perform a graceful power off of the server to standby power mode.

Before You Begin

See: Power Modes, Shutdowns, and Resets

  1. To power off the server, press and immediately release the front panel Power button.


    Caution  -  Potential for loss of data. Do not press in and hold the power button for longer than five seconds. Doing so initiates an immediate server shutdown. Press and release the button immediately.

  2. Verify that the server is in standby power mode.

    When the server is in standby power mode, the SP indicator is on steady, and the Power OK indicator blinks at the single blink rate (for blink rate information, see Indicator Blink Rates).
