Dear All,
I have some IBM x3250 servers at the customer side. Sometimes the servers went down and we need somebody to go onsite and power them. Does IBM provide a module that can do this without going onsite?

    Accepted Solution

    in IBM SystemX server, such module is called "Remote Supervisor Adapter II",
    or simply RSA II. If it is already inside x3250, it is accessible from rear of the server.

    RSA II


    If you go ad BIOS level, surfing in menu, you can see if it is present.

    Could you provide Type-Model of your System x3250 ?

    Just another suggest: could you investigate the reason by which the server comes down? Someone halts it ? Has the server the capability (at bios level) to
    restart in previous state on power blackout? Does it halt unexpectedly ?
