Re: Remote power up of System i 520



fixed

Whenever I do an IPL for PTF purposes, the RCP disappears for a time.

I found a system value, QRMTIPL, that, if set to 1, means a phone call to
the ECS modem will start the system. That gives me the shivers. Mine is
set to 0.

Are you sure there's no remote control panel when it's powered off? Sure?
Because my 9117, while HMC controlled, can still be powered off all the
way and yet I can remotely access the control panel to do stuff like
change it from a T to P side ipl

Short of an HMC, is there any way to remotely power up a System i 520?

I have LAN Console and Remote Control Panel on my desktop at work. Due to
power issues last week (low voltage from utility) after a power outage, I
changed QPWRRSTIPL to 0 for no power up when power is restored.

In a future outage that results in my power handling program shutting down
the system, I have no recourse to power it up other than 1) drive in to
work, or 2) get an HMC, correct?

I can remote from home to my work desktop, but since the System i is
powered off, there ain't not no Remote Control Panel.

Thanks.
