Viewing event logs through the Setup utility

You can view the IMM and POST events through the Setup utility.

To view the POST event log or system-event log, complete the following steps:

  1. Connect a keyboard, monitor, and mouse to the console breakout cable and connect the console breakout cable to the compute node.
    • The KVM connectors on the upper and lower compute nodes are rotated 180-degrees from each other. Make sure that the connector on the console breakout cable is correctly oriented before connecting it.
    • Use only the console breakout cable that comes with the compute node. Attempting to connect other console breakout cable types might damage the console breakout cable and the compute node.
  2. Turn on the compute node.
  3. When the prompt <F1> Setup is displayed, press F1. If you have set both a power-on password and an administrator password, you must type the administrator password to view the event logs.
  4. Select System Event Logs and use one of the following procedures:
    • To view the POST event log, select POST Event Viewer.
    • To view the system-event log, select System Event Log.
    Important: In event messages that reference a specific Flex System x222 compute node, upper or lower, 'node 1' indicates the lower compute node and 'node 2' indicates the upper compute node.
