Power on the server

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

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

  • The server can restart automatically after a power interruption.

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

For information about powering off the server, see Power off the server.
