LX2160 Always restart on power failure

Does anyone know how to configure the LX2160 to always restart on power failure? I recently got a dual Honeycomb LX2 server and configured it following the guide at https://solidrun.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/developer/pages/197494288/HoneyComb+LX2+ClearFog+CX+LX2+Quick+Start+Guide#Packet-Generator-using-DPDK then tested a hard shutdown by removing the power cords. When I restored the power cords I was expecting both devices to automatically start up but they did not. Instead I had to press each power button to get them to boot. I dug around in uboot a bit but didn’t couldn’t find the options I was expecting.

Thank you for any help in advance!

There is no software configuration for this. There is an assembly option on the board that needs to be populated to enable always on power. dual pin header J39 needs to be assembled and jumpered. It is right next to the 24 pin ATX power header.

Awesome, thank you! Worked like a charm. Now that you point it out I do see “force on” near J39. Thanks again!
