Power Off the Server for Immediate Shutdown (Power Button)


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. Press and hold the Power button for four seconds to force the Main power off and to enter Standby power mode.

    When Main power is off, the Standby/OK LED on the front panel begins flashing, indicating that the server is in Standby power mode. See About Controls and Indicators.

  2. Disconnect the power cords and data cables from the server.

    See Remove Power.


    Caution  -  When you power off the server using the Power button, 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.
