Power Off, Remote (Oracle ILOM CLI)

You can use the Oracle ILOM SP command-line interface (CLI) to remotely power off the server to standby power mode.

Before You Begin

See: Power Modes, Shutdowns, and Resets

  1. Open an SSH session and at the command line log in to the SP Oracle ILOM CLI.

    Log in as a user with root or administrator privileges. For example:

    ssh root@ipadress

    where ipadress is the IP address of the server module SP.

    For more information, see Accessing Oracle ILOM in Oracle X4 Series Servers Administration Guide.

    The Oracle ILOM CLI prompt appears:


  2. At the prompt, type one of the following commands:
    • For graceful power off:

      stop /System

    • For immediate power off:


      Caution  -  Data loss. All applications and files close abruptly without saving. Warn users and close all applications before powering off.

      stop -force /System

      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).
