Performing a graceful shutdown ensures that all of your data is saved and the system is ready for restart.
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 http://www.oracle.com/goto/ilom/docs.
For specific information about these processes, refer to your application documentation.
For instructions, refer to the Oracle Exadata Database Machine Installation and Configuration Guide at https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E80920_01/index.htm.
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.
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, disconnect the power cords from the power supplies.
