Hi, i have a problem with DL380 G4, after i shutdown the server it will not boot untill i unplug the power cables and remove a motherboard battery for 5-10 min. After that it will boot with no problems. If i try to boot without procedure listed above server will start all the system lights will be green and lights on the HDD will have a solid green (green arrows), there will be no BIOS sequence on the screen and it will sit like that for ever.
I change the battery and it did not help.
Thanks

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Possibly a bad power supply - swap it out and see what happens.  This one may be on the verge of failing completely.
