Integrated Management Log

Hello,

We have iLO 2 at one DL360G5.
We had a blinking amber LED at one of our disks. This we've finally replaced with a new disk. Disk LED is green again. It's been nearly a day since we replaced the disk.
I still see Caution messages at the IML.

Caution POST Message 02/02/2010 12:20 02/02/2010 12:20 1 POST Error: 1720-S.M.A.R.T. Hard Drive Detects Imminent Failure

How can I repair this or get rid of these messages? This is an VMware ESXi host hosting 3 VMs.

What can I do here?
Thank you.

Edgar.

Re: Integrated Management Log

one of the drives if predicting a failure, you already replaced the drive and POST is still reporting the error.

I recommend flashing the controller and harddrive firmware, HP posted some advisories about fake predictive failures (you may want to google it)

How can I do that?

Re: Integrated Management Log

Messages don't get deletet. They get marked as repaired.

I only know 3 ways to mark them repaired.

1: using the IML log viewer: Select event - right click - click mark repaired.
You can select multible events.
I't possible to delete messages, but I do not reccomend to do so.

2: using the SMH (System management Homepage) SNMP write or create must be enbled, then you can mark them repaired.

3: use the Insight Diagnostics. On-line if installed or boot from the smart start cd.

Some messages do get mark repaired automatically. I'll guess it's the drivers/agents that do that.

This is written from a windows point of view, wich makes these thing easy and nice.

ESXi, should have SMH installed, so try that.

Re: Integrated Management Log

I realized I needed to set up
Configure Insight Manager Integration
through the iLO.

Re: Integrated Management Log

I set that up through the iLO, administration - management:

Insight Manager Web Agent URL: https://IP_ADDRESS_HERE:2381 but it won't work either.
I must be missing something...

Re: Integrated Management Log

Well the reason is you most know Insight to remove message IML you most make you sure that you're SNMP/SECURITY name to be READ_CREATE or it will not delete it or change it status.

SAY THANKS YOU with HP Points.

Re: Integrated Management Log

Yes you can read the IML through the ILo. But not write to it. Or at least I don't how to.

As I wrote. Try with the SMH.
