Dell Poweredge R310 server front display states System log is full, review and clear

Dell Poweredge R310 server front display states System log is full, review and clear.  I've cleared the log and rebooted the server, but the display panel didn't change.  How do I clear it?

You might want to download and install Dell Open Manage Server app. It allows you to view all hardware and error messages that you don't normally see in the Windows event logs.

Here is a link to the support page for firmware, drivers and apps

This display refers to BIOS log, not OS log. Did you clear the hardware BIOS log from Dell support software (or from BIOS itself)?
If not, then this is the reason why display does not change - wrong log.

You will need OMSA to clear the log ... exporting it and/or reviewing it for important messages first might be wise.

You can also clear it from BIOS using the BMC or iDRAC.
