Power Off the Server for Immediate Shutdown (Oracle ILOM CLI)


Caution  -  This procedure quickly forces the server Main power off. You might corrupt your system data during an immediate power-down, so use this procedure to power off the server only after attempting the graceful power-down procedure.

  1. Log in to the SP Oracle ILOM CLI.

    Log in as a user with root or administrator privileges. For example, open an SSH session, and at the command line type:

    ssh root@ipaddress

    Where ipaddress is the IP address of the server SP.

    For more information, see Using Oracle Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) in Oracle Server X8-8 Installation Guide.

    The Oracle ILOM CLI prompt appears: ->

  2. From the CLI prompt, type the following command:

    -> stop -f /System

    The server powers down immediately.

  3. Disconnect the power and data cables from the server.

    See Remove Power.


    Caution  -  When you power off 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.
