Power on the compute node

After the compute node performs a short self-test (power status LED flashes rapidly) when connected to input power, it enters the standby state (power status LED flashes once per second).

A compute node can be turned on (power LED on) in any of the following ways:
  • You can press the power button.

  • The compute node can restart automatically after a power interruption.

  • The compute node can respond to remote power-on requests sent to the Lenovo XClarity Controller.
