Here is what happens. Server is powered down but can get access to the IMPI card. Within the IPMI utility I tell the server to power up. When I tell the server to power up the network connection is temporarily lost for 30-60 seconds. Although the connection comes back that first 30-60 seconds is when I need to get into the server bios over the IMPI KVM. But because no connection I cannot get into the bios and the O/S boots up.
Now when installing the server and setting up at a number of areas I've never had this issue, but since it's moved into a dedicated datacenter this problem has come about. The way this wasn't an issue until in a datacenter makes me believe it's the way the switch is configured in the datacenter that's causing the temporary loss when the server powers up.
The server is connected into a Cisco Metro Ethernet 3750 Series. Anyone had this issue before and is there a configuration that needs to be set on the network to stop this from happening?
