SUMMARY: Sun Fire V210 automatic startup.

I found this nice URL:

It's talking about setting this using:

1- OBP parameter auto-boot? to true (already there)
2- ALOM parameter sc_powerstatememory to true (default to 'false' and
    changed to true)

I'm gonna have to wait until next power outage to test that.

Many thanks for Sandy Gordon for exactly describing the above steps.
And also for:
Benzi Mizrahi
Steve Harris

For helping out.

Kind regards,
