Power Down the Server Gracefully Using the Oracle ILOM Web Interface

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) 4.0 Documentation Collection at https://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 web interface using an Administrator account.

    Refer to Accessing Oracle ILOM in Oracle Servers X7-2 and X7-2L Installation Guide.

    The Oracle ILOM web interface System Information → Summary Information page appears.

  5. In the left pane, click Host Management → Power Control, and click Graceful Shutdown and Power Off from the Select Action list.
  6. Click Save, and then click OK.

    The host server performs an orderly power shutdown to Standby power mode, and the System OK LED on the front panel begins blinking. See Server System-Level Status Indicators.

  7. Disconnect the power cords and data 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 and power supply fans. To completely power off the server, you must disconnect the power cords from the power supplies.
