  • 1.  How to view the detail description of alarms

    Posted Mar 16, 2011 09:14 AM

    Hello,

    I have gotten 3 alarms in triggered alarms for my servers:

    - Host IPMI System Event Log status

    - Host hardware power status

    - Host memory status

    How do I see the detail of the alarms?

    The definitions tab doesn't have detailed explanation.

    Thank you in advance.

    Regards,

    You are running IBM Hardware for your ESX(i) Hosts?  If so, you can check IMM, as well as the hardware status tab. You should get some details in both areas, however IMM may give more detailed information.

    I am using Dell PowerEdge R300.

    The hardware status doesn't really much information about

    - Host IPMI System Event Log status

    - Host memory status

    How to get more information about these status?

    Thanks again.

    Connect to your server's DRAC card - this should show you the hardware info you are looking for.

    As a more complete solution, make sure that you have the Dell management agents installed on your ESX host and view the hardware info in the same way you do for your other hardware (Dell Open Manage etc)
