11912 sel full error

On my power edge 1950 server, there is an amber light flashing  with error message  

"11912 sel full"  I've read some blogs on how to fix the issue.  One of them said to use the the server administrator and go to "logs" and clear the logs.

This server is old and was installed before my time here.  How would I get to the server administrator and is there a command line I can do from the acutal windows os?  The os is win 2k3 r2  64 bit.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks again!!

You can do it from the command line, but you would either need OMSA or DRAC Tools (and a DRAC installed) in order to do it.

You can get OMSA from here:
http://ftp.dell.com/FOLDER00574377M/1/OM-SrvAdmin-Dell-Web-WIN-7.1.0-5304_A00.exe

Download and run to extract files, then run C:\Openmanage\windows\setup.exe, choose Custom and make sure Storage Management is installed (you may need an older version if you are behind on your OS and system updates).

Add the site to IE's Intranet Zone then open it, go to System, Logs tab, and clear.  I would suggest exporting the log or doing a screenshot in case there are any recent and relevent entries.

Alternatively, you can run DSET with the option to Clear the Logs:

I'm sorry maybe dumb question but is the OMSA to be installed on the power edge or is this for remoting into the server administrator for the remote power edge?

Thank you I answered my own question  I was able to use the dset provided by Dell.  This fixed the problem.  Thank you so very much for your help!!

OMSA should be installed on any server that you manage.  You can access OMSA remotely, but it runs on the machine locally.  It is an indespensible tool for troubleshooting and monitoring a Dell server.

It would not "download" or would not install?

Did you look at the logs to see if there were recent entries?  If you have a hardware problem, it could just fill up again.  You could post the DSET Report if you need help opening/looking at it.

At any rate ... go sleep for now :)
