Thanks for your quickly reply
Below is dell power control options
Reset server---------------reboot server without powering off (warm boot)
Power cycle server------ power off, then reboots the server (cold boot)
I test in more servers, just find some server which is bonding lsi 1068E sas card will occur this issue
I do think it is a hardware issue, can you give me some advice?
All ipmitool does is send chassis control messages to the BMC to perform these operations. Since you seem to work for Dell, you will have to ask the people in your company that developed the system what these operations do.

Hi ,sorry for my disturb , I occur one ipmitool issue ,can you help me?
DELL R710 +SAS1068E+non-raid disks
First do DD test to some disk ,we use ipmitool power reset test that time
Then we often find some disks go to offline, need replug it ,it will back to online
But use power cycle ,no this issue
Can you tell me why? When use power reset ,as I know ,it is a hard reset, are all the parts (HD, CPU) will go to off then on ?
