Power the Host On and Off Using Oracle ILOM

This procedure provides Oracle ILOM web interface and command-line interface (CLI) instructions to remotely power on or power off the host.


Note -  These commands affect power to the host but not to the SP. To completely power off the server, disconnect the power cords from the back panel of the server.

Caution

Caution  -  Data loss. An immediate shutdown abruptly closes all applications and files without saving changes.


  • Control power using the Oracle ILOM web interface or the CLI.

    You must be logged on with Administrator privileges. For details, see Using Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM).

    • From the web interface:
      1. In the left pane, click Host Management → Power Control.
      2. From the Select Action list box, select one of the following:
        • Reset – Assert a power-cycle to the server, while keeping power applied to system components, such as storage drives.

        • Graceful Reset – Gracefully shut down the host operating system before you power cycle the server.

        • Immediate Power Off – Directly shut down the power to the server.

        • Graceful Shutdown and Power Off – Gracefully shut down the host operating system before you shut down the power to the server.

        • Power On – Apply full power to the system.

        • Power Cycle – Turn off system power to all system components and apply Main power to all system components.

      3. Click Save, and then click OK.
    • From the CLI, enter one of the following commands:
      • reset /SYSTEM

      • stop /SYSTEM

      • stop -f /SYSTEM

      • start /SYSTEM
