Power off the compute node

The compute node remains in the standby state when connected to a power source, while Cloud Controller is allowed to respond to remote power-on requests. To completely power off the compute node (power status LED off), you must disconnect all power cables.

To power off the compute node that is in a standby state (power status LED flashes once per second):


The Cloud Controller can place the compute node in a standby state as an automatic response to a critical system failure.

In the standby state, the compute node can respond to remote power-on requests sent to the Cloud Controller. For information about powering on the compute node, see Power on the compute node.
