I would venture a guess that Dr. Franken could engineer a little robotic arm
that would reach out on command and press the power button.

Remember the FSP is an independent device and it powers up and boots,
when power is applied to the system chassis without any intervention at
all. Your HMC connects to that, so in effect, you are connecting to a
powered up portion of the system. The FSP, which can control all the
hardware can then cause the SPCN network to power up all of the chassis
and devices it is aware of.
While power is has not been restored to the CEC and the expansion
chassis, the FSP is up and running.

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

Subject: Remote power up of System i 520
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.
power issues last week (low voltage from utility) after a power
changed QPWRRSTIPL to 0 for no power up when power is restored.
In a future outage that results in my power handling program shutting
the system, I have no recourse to power it up other than 1) drive in
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.
