    Step 1 Server# scope cimc  

    Enters the CIMC command mode.

     
    Step 2 Server /cimc # scope log  

    Enters the CIMC log command mode.

     
    Step 3 Server /cimc/log # show entries [detail]  

    Displays CIMC events, including timestamp, the software module that logged the event, and a description of the event.

    Clearing the CIMC Log

    Procedure
        Command or Action Purpose
      Step 1 Server# scope cimc  

      Enters the CIMC command mode.

       
      Step 2 Server /cimc # scope log  

      Enters the CIMC log command mode.

       
      Step 3 Server /cimc/log # clear  

      Clears the CIMC log.

       

      The following example clears the log of CIMC events:

      Server# scope cimc
      Server /cimc # scope log
      Server /cimc/log # clear
             
      

      Sending the CIMC Log to a Remote Server

      You can configure profiles for one or two remote syslog servers to receive CIMC log entries.

      Before You Begin
      • The remote syslog server must be configured to receive logs from a remote host.
      • The remote syslog server must be configured to receive all types of logs, including authentication-related logs.
      • The remote syslog server's firewall must be configured to allow syslog messages to reach the syslog server.
      Procedure
          Command or Action Purpose
        Step 1 Server# scope cimc  

        Enters the CIMC command mode.

         
        Step 2 Server /cimc # scope log  

        Enters the CIMC log command mode.

         
        Step 3 Server /cimc/log # scope server {1 | 2}  

        Selects one of two remote syslog server profiles and enters the command mode for configuring the profile.

         
        Step 4 Server /cimc/log/server # set server-ip ip-address  

        Specifies the remote syslog server IP address.

         
        Step 5 Server /cimc/log/server # set enabled {yes | no}  

        Enables the sending of CIMC log entries to this syslog server.

         
        Step 6 Server /cimc/log/server # commit  

        Commits the transaction to the system configuration.

         

        This example shows how to configure a remote syslog server profile and enable the sending of CIMC log entries:

        Server# scope cimc
        Server /cimc # scope log
        Server /cimc/log # scope server 2
        Server /cimc/log/server # set server-ip 192.0.2.34
        Server /cimc/log/server *# set enabled yes
        Server /cimc/log/server *# commit
        Server /cimc/log/server #
        

        System Event Log

        Viewing the System Event Log

        Procedure
            Command or Action Purpose
          Step 1 Server# scope sel  

          Enters the system event log (SEL) command mode.

           
          Step 2 Server /sel # show entries detail  

          For system events, displays timestamp, the severity of the event, and a description of the event. The detail keyword displays the information in a list format instead of a table format.

           

          This example displays the system event log:

          Server# scope sel
          Server /sel # show entries
          Time                Severity      Description

          Clearing the System Event Log

          Procedure
              Command or Action Purpose
            Step 1 Server# scope sel  

            Enters the system event log command mode.

             
            Step 2 Server /sel # clear  

            You are prompted to confirm the action. If you enter y at the prompt, the system event log is cleared.

             

            This example clears the system event log:

            Server# scope sel
            Server /sel # clear 
            This operation will clear the whole sel.
