    For example, to reset the server:

    • From the local server, press the On/Standby button on the front panel of the server to power off the server, and then press the On/Standby button again to power on the server.

    • From the Oracle ILOM web interface, click Host Management → Power Control and select Reset from the Select Action list.

    • From the Oracle ILOM CLI, type reset /System

  2. After the server resets, to enter the BIOS Setup Utility, press the F2 key (Ctrl+E from a serial connection) when prompted and while the BIOS is running the power-on self-tests (POST).

    The BIOS Setup Utility Main Menu screen appears.
