Power down the server

WARNING:  To reduce the risk of personal injury, electric shock, or damage to the equipment, remove the power cord to remove power from the server. The front panel Power On/Standby button does not completely shut off system power. Portions of the power supply and some internal circuitry remain active until AC power is removed.

IMPORTANT: If installing a hot-plug device, it is not necessary to power down the server.

  1. Back up the server data.
  2. Shut down the operating system as directed by the operating system documentation.
  3. If the server is installed in a rack, press the UID LED button on the front panel (1). Blue LEDs illuminate on the front and rear panels of the server.
  4. Press the Power On/Standby button to place the server in standby mode (2). When the server activates standby power mode, the system power LED changes to amber.
