ESXi hardware status, false warnings/Alert

April 12, 2015 0 By Allan Kjaer

I have see on different servers, from multiple hardware vendors, showing false warnings/Alerts under the hardware status, like this.

When looking at the hardware in IMM/ILO/iDRAC/… it does no show any errors.

What I have found is that this might be inconsistense between Firmware/BIOS/…. on the hardware and the vendors CIM modules

But it may also just be a record in the IPMI log, from an old error, so just do a reset of this log, fixes the problem.

After the reset event log, wait until the log is empty, or just ~1 log event saying that the log was cleaned/emptied. You may need to reset event log, more then once, but wait 5 minutes between the execution of reset event log.
