Is it possible to configure the HP DL360 and ML 110 server such that it could restart automatically during power failure, without manually switch on the button ?

Thanks

The problem lies with how does the server know that the power is back on? If you have a UPS then there may be an option in the management agent, but I doubt it.

Yes..

It is possible through CMOS settings. Open CMOS , change setting of 'press F1 to continue' to disable.
Next time when poer goes and back, server will come online automatically

Close.
But more like "After Power Loss" and change it to "Previous State" or "Restart Computer". Different systems have it listed differently.

I haven't dl'ed the manual to check, but most BIOS's have it under Power Management.
You will also need to make sure anything you want running, to be setup to start at bootup (if not already).

I think that what you haven't said is that you've got a UPS that's told the server to power off (since Proliants return to their previous state after power loss by default).

Setting DontPowerOffAfterShutdown in the registry or through the local power policy is the easiest way if you can't find a BIOS solution assuming you have Windows, see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/819760 (ignore the hotfix stuff at the begining of the document).

And, provided you don't have an agent to automatically start up the server ... most BIOS' also have the option to power on when power returns.  This differs from "previous state" in that if you have some UPS software that shuts down the system when main power has been out too long, then it will power on as soon as main power is restored, whereas with "previous state", since it was shut down, it would not automatically power on.
