How to view and/or clear IPMI error logs as well as resetting chassis warning

To view the IPMI error logs on an IPMI-enabled server (at least in the case of Micron), perform the following:

  1. Install Openipmi using up2date.
  2. Ensure the IPMI service is started. On RHEL4, simply run "service ipmi start". On RHEL3, run "/usr/share/ipmitool/ipmi.init.basic start". For some reason, the ipmi.init.redhat init script doesn't work.
  3. To view the event logs, run "ipmitool sel elist". Note these results can be piped through tail, etc.
  4. To clear the event logs, run "ipmitool sel clear".
  5. To reset the warning indicator on the chassis (again, at least in the case of Micron), run "ipmitool mc clear warn".
