RE: Remote power up of System i 520



fixed

You are correct. Our system had that for a while.
It was nice for the weekends. If I wanted to work from home all I had to do was call in and the system came up.
Then when done just power down *immd.
We do not use it any longer. Leaves system to open.

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.
