An immediate shutdown should be used in situations when you know that the loss of data is nonexistent or acceptable (for more information, see Power Modes, Shutdowns, and Resets).
Caution - Data loss. All applications and files close abruptly without saving. Warn users and close all applications before powering off.
Use this procedure when you are at the server to immediately power off the server to standby power mode.
Before You Begin
Physical access to the server front panel is required.
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).
