I have an old server in a remote location. It has its own power feed which is subject to failure twice a month. The problem with this failure is that it does not simply drop and recover hours later. It drops, recovers for 5 min, drops again, recovers for minutes then might drop again etc. So I don’t want to set the server to reboot on AC being restored. I want to wait until I think that the AC is stable.
Many modern BIOS allow one to reboot on mouse, keyboard and (I think) LAN activity.
As I can’t access the server location easily , does anyone have first hand experience of what reboot on LAN activity means or am I confused and BIOSs only have the ability to boot from a LAN. If the server can only be set to boot from the LAN and not because of LAN activity is there a way to disable whatever is providing the means for the server to boot from the LAN until I am happy that the AC is stable.
