Power Down the Server for Immediate Shutdown Using the Oracle ILOM CLI


Caution  -  This procedure quickly forces the server Main power off. An immediate power-off might corrupt the system data. Therefore, use this procedure to power down the server only after attempting the graceful power-down procedure.

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

    Oracle ILOM displays the default command prompt (->), indicating that you have successfully logged in to Oracle ILOM.

  2. From the CLI prompt, type the following command:

    -> stop -f /System

    The server powers down immediately to Standby power mode, and the System OK LED on the front panel begins blinking. See Server System-Level Status Indicators.

  3. Disconnect the power 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, you must disconnect the power cords from the power supplies.
