Hi,

I've got an IPMI SEL alert in my VMWare vSphere Client ... seems to be related to the power sources of one of my host, their statuses indicate 'unknown' ... but the host and its power sources work just fine ...

Any ideas?

Thank you!

This often occurs, ensure all firmwares, BIOS are up to date on the Host Server, make sure you are using an OEM edition of ESXi e.g. HP, Dell, IBM (download ESXi from Vendor site).

Or just reset the Sensors either through vSphere Client or next time at Power Up in the BIOS.

Hi, I've reset the sensors though the vSphere Client, the alert has come back.

Same firmware & BIOS on all three servers ... and according to the VMware Update Manager everything is updated.

At next scheduled shutdown/restart, check event logs in BIOS.

Is this HP or Dell ?
