Power Down Server Gracefully Using the Oracle ILOM Web Interface

  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 about these processes.

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

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

    The Oracle ILOM web interface System Information → Summary Information page appears.

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