Specify Host Virtual Keyswitch Behavior

Use the keyswitch_state property to control the position of the virtual keyswitch.

This task uses PDomain_0 as an example. You must have the admin role (a) to complete this task.

  1. Log in to Oracle ILOM.

    See Log In to Oracle ILOM (CLI).

  2. Type:
    -> set /Servers/PDomains/PDomain_0/HOST keyswitch_state=value

    where value can be:

    • Normal – (Default) The host can power itself on and start the boot process.

    • Standby – Powers off the host, and disables power on.

    • Diag – Host power on is allowed. This value overrides the settings of Diag target, resulting in maximum POST being executed.

    • Locked – Host power on is allowed. However, you are prohibited from updating flash devices or setting /Servers/PDomains/PDomain_0/HOST send_break_action=break.
