@RStallman-legalteam Thank you! I see we also have "expiry_date" and "expiry_contact" (email address) in our code for access for contractors and you are a contact for at least one of them. Should we add you for Paul as well and is there an expiry date?

@Papaul confirmed it has the same behaviour again. It shows as status "powered down", then you can tell it to power on and it claims it is powering on.. but if you connect to console it still claims "is not powered on". I guess we should repeat what you did last time ("removed the PSU's for a couple of minutes and plugged them back"?) and contact HP about this happening again on the same hardware.
