Enabling the ASR Status 
    

Configure the system to automatically reboot if the server locks up. The ASR Status option is a toggle setting that enables or disables ASR. If you set this option to disabled, no ASR features function. The System Management driver must be loaded to use this option.

Steps to set the ASR status:

1. From the System Utilities screen, select System Configuration→BIOS/Platform Configuration  (RBSU)→Server Availability and select ASR Status and press Enter.  
2. Select Enable or Disable. 

3. Press F10 to save the selection.

Setting ASR Timeout If Automatic Server Recovery is enabled, this option lets user set the time to wait before rebooting the server in the event of an operating system crash or server lockup. When the server has not responded in the selected amount of time, the server automatically reboots. To set ASR timeout: 1. From the System Utilities screen, select System Configuration→BIOS/Platform Configuration (RBSU)→Server Availability and select ASR Timeout and press Enter. 2. Select one of the following time increments: • 5 minutes • 10 minutes (default) • 15 minutes • 20 minutes • 30 minutes 3. Press F10 to save the selection.
