Hi


For MCS , I dont think we have any option to make it auto boot after power failure. You have to manaully start it.

Hi CC,


We have Automatic Server restart feature [ASR] available on MCS IBM servers.This option appears in BIOS setup [u need to enter into it and enable this option].I have checked on MCS IBM servers and it works.


Please check out and let me know.

My understanding of ASR is not that it will boot up a server that has lost power but rather, "The Automatic Server Restart event occurs when the operating system locks up and no longer responds. Subsequently, a system restart (reboot) begins."

If you've tested this though by pulling the power from a server and it did boot up again only with that setting enabled that's good to know.
