Problems clearing POST Message SMH/SNMP


We had a couple of HP ProLiant DL380 G6-servers running CentOS 6.4 going down during the weekend due to overheating. After fixing the heating situation and getting the systems back online we are still getting errors from the surveillance system (Nagios) polling SNMP. In the system management homepage all sensors are listed as OK, and the same in the iLO-GUI.


However, when I poll the SNMP service I get the following:

SNMP OK - 3 | CPQHLTH-MIB::cpqHeMibCondition.0=3

SNMP OK - 3 | CPQHLTH-MIB::cpqHePostMsgCondition.0=3


What I have done to clear the errors:

1. Marked all items in IML as repaired - no change

2. Cleared the IML - no change

3. Cleared the iLO-logs - no change

4. Reset the iLO - no change


I found this old thread, but none of the solutions there helped either:


In ASR, the Clear box isn't visible and the reset count is 0.


OS: CentOS 6.4 - 2.6.32-358.6.1.el6.x86_64

SMH ver:

iLO 2 ver: 2.09 (04/11/12)

ASR HW ver: 1.0


Does anyone have any idea on how I can reset the PostMsgCondition, so that the systems are listed as OK again?

Re: Problems clearing POST Message SMH/SNMP

And there I solved it myself:


/etc/init.d/hp-snmp-agents restart


Et voilà - systems fixed! :-/


So much trouble for nothing. But maybe someone else sees this post and is spared the troubleshooting.
