Clearing BMC errorlog on a rx2620

hello,

When I'm trying to boot up an Itanium rx2620, it comes up with a warning that I've to clear the BMC memory logs..

After some diving in EFI i've found out that this can ben done with : default clear bmc

ONLY : It tells me to enter a "service mode" on the itanium.

How to proceed, since I cannot find the service mode even tried the "diagnostics disk from HP"

Kind regards,
Roodveldt

There is an EFI command called "sysmode"
Shell> sysmode
Shell> sysmode service


Take a look at

Do you have the MP installed?


Try this from EFI:

EFI> clearlogs

Hope this helps!

clearlogs doesn't seem to be a valid command, though it's in the help of EFI.

changing the service level tells me, that I need Maintainance Mode instead of Admin mode.
strange..

still got the BMC-warning.

Depending on the BMC warning ( SEL or FPL )
try clearlogs EFI command like
Shell> clearlogs sel
Shell> clearlogs fpl

You cannot go into MFG mode. Consider to clear the MP logs first.

Hope this helps!
