UPS shuts server down, power is restored and - ML370 stays off and must be _manually_ switched on.
What's that? Of course, we want our servers to re-boot after power being restored!
There's no means to get the well-known EVO power switch behaviour: Power On after Power Loss!
No BIOS setting availibale, no OS setting else (NT, W2k, W2k3). No system setting, no policy setting. Absolutely NOTHING I could find.
ML370 G4 allows to set "always power on" in F9-Setup - which is not the thing we want really.
Didn't find any threads elsewhere regarding that ugly behaviour.

The hotfix described is also available from HP:

I know about these MS hints. They are for Win2003 and english OS only. They don't cover my problem. I do not want servers to stay at prompt to switch off after shutdown!
ML370 G2 doesn't power on after regular shutdown by an UPS in Win2000. Same, if I manually issue shutdown (_without_ reboot).
It does power on, if you interrupt while not having loaded Win2000.
So, ist there any "ACPI override switch" or else?

Anyway, if you find a solution, would you please share it???
Thank you, Tom

sorry to say - no solution up to now. The ML370G2 doesn't have RBSU, where you might have some Power (ACPI) control.
I've looked up the ACPI spec's, it's about 600 pages - wow, indeed a fundamental description. I believe the Win2k HAL, which is ACPI compliant, sets some register(s) in NVRam to accomplish the (for me) not-wated behaviour. If you knew about the deatils, there might be an easy workaround.
Thus far, you might override ACPI by installing the OS with (dumb) standard IBM PC kernel.
Perhaps the Linux workers with their own kernel have some insight into ACPI details regarding power switch behaviour?

You may have to install Win2k3 and the corresponding hotfix.
I answered you in another forum thread btw.
Thank you, Tom

I find it odd that the solution is OS based. The server is only 2 years OLD and according to HP you would not want a server to power up after an outage at 4am on a Saturday morning.
