Re: Clearing IML via script

There is not currently a RIBCL/XML command to clear the IML - only the iLO event log.

Intrestingly a lot of this functionality was removed after 1.40 as there was distinct permisions for view and clear of this log on a per user basis. This was removed when user authentication via ldap intergration took place.

Re: Clearing IML via script

There used to be a lot of granular permissions in iLO, contrasted with RILOE which originally had only "user" and "administrator" roles.

When the directory integration was introduced, the permissions were rationalized for iLO, RILOE, and RILOE II, resulting in a mix in-line with customer feedback.

The "configure iLO" privilege is now required to clear the logs.

hi

i can advice you to use the provided tool via cli. (the IML Utility can be started from command line)

this should make it easy to use it in a script or in a simple batchfile

have fun
