Pinned topic x3650m4 fails to restart after power failure - IBM feature!

‏2014-02-16T13:11:09Z |

After a prolonged power outage overnight 2 servers failed to automatically restart. BIOS is set to always power up after power failure, but this didn't work.

According to this:  https://www-947.ibm.com/support/entry/myportal/docdisplay?lndocid=MIGR-5080302

Wake on LAN not functioning after improper shutdown - IBM System x

Symptom
The system on-board Ethernet, based on the Intel 82575 Ethernet controller chipset, in the listed server system models, will not Wake On LAN (WOL) following an improper system shutdown.
Solution
None. This is a permanent limitation.

So the IBM 2200VA gracefully shits down the server, and that counts as an improper shutdown from which the server cannot wake up. Brilliant!

Surely there is a fix for this in a BIOS update. IBM, help?????
