Resetting or Powering the Server Off and On

Some OS installations require that the Oracle Server X8-2 or Oracle Server X8-2L be reset or powered on. Follow these instructions.

Tip  -  For more server power control procedures, refer to Controlling System Power in Oracle Servers X8-2 and X8-2L Installation Guide.

Note -  x86 Delay BIOS Firmware Option Can Cause a Longer Reset and Multiple Reboots. If the server has a pending BIOS upgrade, a routine reset will take longer to complete. The pending BIOS upgrade will cause the server to power cycle and reboot several times. This is expected behavior. If the upgrade includes an FPGA update, the process can take as long as 26 minutes to complete.

Note that a pending BIOS upgrade exists when both of these conditions are true: You updated the BIOS and SP firmware using Oracle ILOM. During the Oracle ILOM firmware update process, you selected Delay BIOS Upgrade.
