Powering a Controller On and Off Using IPMI

You can power on or off, and reset a C Series Controller you are currently logged in to and for a remote controller. You must be logged on as a root user.

To execute a power command in the local controller using IPMI:

  1. Log in as root user.
    SRC-PE Release 3.1 [R.3.1.0-12]login: root
  2. Enter the password.
    Password: password

    You are now logged in as root user.

  3. Access the CLI.
    [root@host ~]# cli--- SRC CLI 3.1 build CLI.R.3.1.0.012 (c) 2005-2008 Juniper Networks Inc. root@host>
  4. Enter the request ipmi power command.
    user@host>request ipmi power (on | off | soft-off | reset| cycle)
    • on—Power on a C Series Controller
    • off—Power off a C Series Controller. This command does not initiate a clean shutdown of the operating system before powering off the system.
    • soft-off—Power off a C Series Controller softly. This command initiates a soft shutdown of the operating system before powering off the system.
    • reset—Perform a hard reset on a C Series Controller.
    • cycle—Power off and then power on a C Series Controller.

    For example:

    user@host>request ipmi power off

To execute a power command on a remote controller using IPMI:

  1. Log in as root user.
  2. Enter the request ipmi host user power command.
    root@host>request ipmi host host user user power (on | off | soft-off | reset| cycle)

    For example:

    root@host>request ipmi host 10.10.10.30 user johndoe power reset
