HP RX2660 BMC ERROR

I am trying to load HP-UX 11i V2 on my rx2660 server but it keeps resetting. Says BMC log is full...

Do I need to clear the BMC log to fix this issue and if so how do I do that via VGA monitor????

Re: HP RX2660 BMC ERROR

You have a few options to access the logs and clear them if full. Unfortunately it cannot be done using a VGA monitor connected to the rx2660. Here are your options

Refer to section 8 of the iLO user guide for more details
http://bizsupport2.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c01936251/c01936251.pdf

1) connect a terminal or use a terminal emulator from a pc connected to the serial/console port on the back.

2) telnet to the MP/iLO using a terminal emulator

3) connect to the MP/iLO via a web browser.

Once there, you can view and clear the logs, however, in the event there are other problems, you would want to save the logs in case you need further support. Support would need the logs to possibly troubleshoot the system. The best way to save the logs is from the command line interface(CLI) (using telnet and logging with a terminal emulator).

You would want to capture the SEL and the FPL in "keyword mode. From the MP main menu, simply enter

sl -e -v k â nc (error logs)
sl -f -v k â nc (forward progress logs)
