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:

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

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.
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?????
