Power On the Server

When AC power is applied to the server power inlets, the System A or System B server boots into Standby power mode. For information, see Server Boot Process and Normal Operating State Indicators.

Use the following procedure to reapply Main power for System A or System B server components.

  1. Ensure that the server is in Standby power mode.
  2. To power on the server, do one of the following:
    • From the front of the server, press and immediately release the Power button on the server front panel.
    • From the Oracle ILOM web interface Summary Information page, click Power State Turn On button.
    • From the Oracle ILOM command-line interface (CLI), type:

      ->start /System

    Note -  When the server powers on, the power-on self-test (POST) can take several minutes to complete.

    When the server is powered on and the power-on self-test (POST) code checkpoint tests have completed, the System B green System OK LED status indicator on the front panel of the server lights and remains lit.

    Verify that the two power supply AC OK LEDs are lit.
