Power Down the Server Gracefully Using the Oracle ILOM CLI

Performing a graceful shutdown ensures that all of your data is saved and the system is ready for restart.

  1. Log in to the server as superuser or equivalent.

    Depending on the nature of the problem, you might want to view the system status or the log files or run diagnostics before you shut down the system. For log file information, refer to the Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) 3.2 Documentation Collection at http://www.oracle.com/goto/ilom/docs.

  2. Notify affected users that the server will be powered down.
  3. Save any open files, and quit all running applications.

    Refer to your application documentation for specific information about these processes.

  4. Log in to the Oracle ILOM command-line interface (CLI) using an Administrator account.

    For instructions, refer to the Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) 3.2 Documentation Collection.

  5. At the Oracle ILOM prompt, shut down the operating system:
    -> stop /System

    If the system is running the Oracle Solaris OS, refer to the Oracle Solaris system administration documentation for additional information.

  6. Disconnect the power and cables from the server.

    See Disconnect Cables From the Server.


    Caution  -  When you power down the server using Oracle ILOM, the server enters standby power mode. Power is still directed to the service processor remote management subsystem and power supply fans. To completely power off the server, you must disconnect the power cords from the power supplies.
