Most BIOS (UEFI) support a setting "what to do when plugged into AC?" whose
options are "nothing, last state, turn on". If the scenario includes
finally turning off the UPS you might get by with that. Otherwise, Wake On
Lan features are implemented at the BIOS (UEFI) and lan controller level so
the OS that runs on the server doesnt matter.
I would search for the compatible System X manual and how to configure Wake
on lan on that server.
I'm currently traveling and don't have access to most of my manuals but you
should be able to find it with that.

Another way would be the IMM, all System X servers have IMM (currently
IMM2) which you can use to turn on and off the server and if the correct
keys were purchased you even get the IP kvm, i think you can even get the
IMM to share the ethernet port with the normal LAN one.

Best Regards,

I have a 7042-CR8 HMC. I would like to configure "Wake on Lan". Is this
possible? I googled for this and what I found says the hardware for some
models of the HMC support this but it's up to the software. This makes it
sound like if you initialize the hard drives and replace it with Windows,
and run Windows based applications instead of HMC, it can be done.

Apparently there is other interest:

Power fails.
You're running on UPS.
You're ordered to shutdown the Power 8 (it's ok, you're replicated) and
the HMC to save remaining battery life for other devices.
Extended power outage. You go home.
Power is restored.
You could bring up the Power 8 remotely if the HMC was running.
