what happen after a power outage ?

Jump to solution
hi, I'm working on writing script to handle long power outage (shutdown and boot). I shutdown my 3 PowerEdge R710 but what will happen when power come back ? I guess that PowerEdge will not boot up alone. How is it possible to Wake them up automatically ? Wake on lan ? I can't find anything in IDRAC... thanks for your answers. greetings

Hello

You can use racadm commands to turn the server back on. I'm not sure exactly how you would script it.

SSH to the iDRAC IP address. You will need to provide the user/pass. After you are remoted into the iDRAC you can run this command to power on the server:

racadm serveraction powerup

Thanks
