Admittedly I don't know the Cisco sucks servers but don't they provide remote power on/off via the Integrated Management Controller? All the other manufacturers provide that function although not through WoL but via the BMC.

>>Web user interface for server management; remote keyboard, video, and mouse (KVM); virtual media; and administration...

Surely the web user interface has an "on" button as an option? All the rest provide that, HP iLO, Dell DRAC, IBM RSA etc.

Yes, the GUI interface allows power on, off, reset.  You need to use them when you're installing ESXi and getting NICs configured.

Thanks alot for your helpful information.

Actually Cisco has CIMC (Cisco Integrated Management Controller ) this is the Web user interface and it has the power on button.

but our issue is the electricity is always cut continuously and sometimes we need our Cisco server to work with network start.

so is it possible in our server UCS C210 M2 to have Wake On Lan option because i cant find it  anywhere .

Can you not just set the power restore policy for it to power up again when power is restored?

If you had it set to start up when power was restored wouldn't suffice to get it running again after power loss?

Oh, I think I understand, you don't want it to power on when the power comes back, you want to keep it shut down until the network is available and only then power on when you send it a magic packet.

If the workaround using the power policy is good enough for you it's at http://ccnp-v.blogspot.co.uk/2012/01/ucs-c200-series-power-on-after-power.html

Actually ,No , the reverse what you send.

We want to power on the server when the power comes back.

also the the power policy is not available in our CIMC in the server Tab as it is shown in the attach file

so please help me find it.

Thanks

Hmm, tried a different web browser?

I had tried another browser the same result.

in my opinion it doesn't matter if you had tried any kind of browsers because the CIMC will be the same in all of them , or the option must be avalible in the bios to enable it.

but the question is ? where is this option? where i can find it?

please help me.
