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 http://www.oracle.com/goto/ilom/docs.

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

    For specific information about these processes, refer to your application documentation.

  4. Log in to the Oracle ILOM web interface using an Administrator account.

    For instructions, refer to the Oracle Exadata Database Machine Installation and Configuration Guide at https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E80920_01/index.htm.

  5. In the left pane, click Host Management → Power Control, and from the Select Action list, click Graceful Shutdown and Power Off.
  6. Click Save, and 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 remote management subsystem and power supply fans. To completely power off the server, disconnect the power cords from the power supplies.
