I asked this question previously, but now I need the steps to clear it using Openmanage.  I thought it would be clear to me but it's not.

Once installed, open OpenManage, go to System, then Logs tab, then Clear.

You won't find anything you need in those links, unfortunately.  None of them talk about OpenManage or how to clear the logs.

Has the SEL message returned so soon after clearing it?  If so, then you should figure out the cause rather than simply clearing it everytime it fills up.  What are the log messages that are filling it up?

Before clearing all messages from that log, you should review them to make sure you are aware of any problems before deleteing the logs.

And Management Console is not the same as OpenManage Server Administrator (OMSA).  In order for Management Console to work (installed on a separate machine), OMSA must first be installed on each individual machine.

@PowerEdgeTech, is there a way to know if it has been cleared without being at the server?

Are you talking about the LCD error message?  No, you wouldn't be able to tell unless you were looking at it ... OMSA has a Front Panel tab (in Main System Chassis), but I don't believe it tells you the current LCD status - just lets you set the LCD text when there is no error (blue).

Thanks
