Lights-out management on Intel Xserves 101

February 22, 2007

When running Intel Xserves and using the lights-out management of the Xserves (I’ll write more about configuring this in a later post), you should not use the security locking mechanism at the front of the xserve. Otherwise your xserve on restarts won’t reboot but instead stay down.

It took us 2 hours and several missed restarts to figure that out 😉
