MCS 7816 H3 power button

Unanswered Question
Jul 4th, 2007


This is probably extremely easy to answer, but I have not had chance to play with the 7816, so cannot say for sure.

My customer has long power cuts which cannot be covered by a UPS for the full length of the cut. Hence, he has asked whether the power button on the 7816 is positive in the sense that once it is depressed, if it loses power supply, once that is restored, the server will simply reboot without having anyone maunally depress the power button to get it to boot? If not, then does ILO stay active when the server is off but power is being supplied to the device from the mains?

Thanks for your kind assistance in advance.



I have this problem too.

I can't answer the power button question, but as for the iLo, yes, I do believe they stay active all the time. They run on internal batteries on the card, and they do receive power when the machine is off but is receiving power from the main.
