ONTAP Hardware

Automatic Boot/Restart after Powerloss (APC Powerchute)


Hi everyone,

ist there a way after shutting down (Power loss) a FAS2552 via APC PowerChute (UPS) to start up automatically?
Maybe triggered via a Script?


Best Regards





I had a similar request a while back and we were able to accomplish it by using expect to connect to the RLM\Service-Processor via ssh to run a "system power on". The client was using Eaton Intelligent Power Manager to do the shutdown.


I hope this helps.

A few more details?

ONTAP version (and mode)?

How is the PowerChute shutting down the controllers, exactly?


If you have SSH access to the SP of each controller, you can run "system power on" commands from there.
