  • Page 73: Known Issues

    Can Oracle use IPMI to reset a partition? Answer: Not during the online complex firmware update process. Do virtual partition reboots proceed during online complex firmware update? Answer: HP can not guarantee completion of a reboot during this time, so the operator should avoid initiating this action while in process.
