Power Down Server Gracefully Using the Oracle ILOM CLI

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 more information, see the Oracle ILOM 5.0 Documentation Library at https://www.oracle.com/goto/ilom/docs.

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

    Refer to your application documentation for specific information on these processes.

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

    Refer to Accessing Oracle ILOM in Oracle Servers X8-2 and X8-2L Installation Guide.

  5. At the Oracle ILOM prompt, shut down the operating system:
    -> stop /System

    Note -  The stop /System command does not guarantee a system shutdown. This command is only a request to the host operating system (OS) to perform a system shutdown. To ensure a system shutdown, see Power Down the Server for Immediate Shutdown Using the Oracle ILOM CLI.

    If the system is running the Oracle Solaris OS, refer to the Oracle Solaris system administration documentation for additional information.

    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.

  6. Disconnect the power and 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.
