Re: Shutting down the wrong server

"But I NEVER switch off a server in the rack by using the button if I can avoid it. That's what Shutdown commands or ILO/iDrac is for."

In those days, NT (and 9x) would shut down the system, but not power it off. The power button still had to be pressed manually.
