I have a new PowerEdge T320 running WHE 2012.
I have connected all my clients using the SkipDomain option.
I want to have the server sleep between backup sessions.
Sleep is not an option in the ShutDown menu. It is enabled in the power scheme.
How to I enable sleep in the OS?
Check out this article for more shutdown options in Server 2012:
That is a useful website, and I will read it.
However, it does not help. I do not have sleep as an option in any of the shutdown methods.
Getting there via the charms settings power route, my only options are Restart and Shut Down.
The Alt-F4 version adds Switch User.
No sleep or hibernate to be found.
When I try to put the system to sleep using Lights-Out from a client I get the following error message:
"Lights-Out ignored action Suspend, Veto from Backup"
I suspect I need to changes some setting or services in WSE 2012, but I have not found anything that
seems to work.
I got it to work with hibernation. Dell did not install all the drivers, which was probably the cause.
Hopefully it will wake up to back up its clients tonight.
