If the log says that the shutdown was unexpected, then I'd suspect a power outage at that time. If you're using a managed PDU, check to see if that outlet (or the whole pdu) is set to power cycle. If you have more then one power supply, I'd recommend plugging them into different pdu circuits. If you're pluged in to a UPS, suspect that the UPS is cycling and that there's no UPS management service running. If you're plugged into (yikes) the wall, suspect building power.

Where is poweredge 1800 display led connector


http://www.dell.com/support/troubleshooting/us/en/19/KCS/KcsArticles/Print?he Embedded System Management (ESM) log - also called System Event Log (SEL) or hardware log - reports potential hardware problems in Dell PowerEdge servers. Sometimes, simply turning off the server and disconnecting it from the electrical outlet will remove the error message. Wait approximately 10 seconds, and then reconnect the power cable and restart the server.

Other times, you will need to clear the ESM log to remove the error message. For instance, error code SEL FULLindicates that you will need to clear the ESM log. (You will lose the server's event history.) There are different ways to clear the ESM log.

To use DSET to Clear the ESM Log
  1. Download and open the DSET utility.
  2. Click the plus (+) next to System, and then click the plus (+) next to Logs.
  3. Click ESM to highlight it.
  4. Click Clear ESM Log located in the upper-right corner of the page.
To use OpenManage Server Administrator (OMSA) to clear the ESM log
  1. Start OpenManage Server Administrator (OMSA).
  2. Log in to OMSA by entering your username and password, and then press Enter.
  3. Click the Logs tab, and then click Hardware.
  4. Click Clear Log located next to Options.
To use Dell IT Assistant to clear the ESM log
  1. Start IT Assistant.
  2. From the middle System Tree bar, select your server by clicking it.
  3. Click the Logs tab, and then click Clear Log in the upper-right corner of the page.
Find your Dell PowerEdge server model in the chart below for other ways to clear the ESM log:

Use the Log2Txt.exe utility to clear the ESM log:
  1. Start your server to the Log2Txt utility.
  2. When you see the ESM Log main menu appear, press 2 on your keyboard to select Clear ESM log.
  3. When the ESM Log main menu reappears, press 5on your keyboard to exit the utility.
1650, 1850, 1800, 2600, 2650, 2800, 4600, 6600, 6650, 7150, 6800, 6850, R900
Use the DRAC or ERA to clear the ESM log:
  1. Type the IP address of the Remote Access Controller (RAC) in the web browser address bar, and then press Enter.
  2. Log in to the RAC.
  3. Click the Logs tab, and then click Hardware.
  4. Click Clear Logs located in the upper-right corner of the page.
1850, 2800, 2850, 6800, 6850
Use the program BMCCFG.exe to clear the ESM logs:
  1. Download and extract the Dell OpenManage Deployment Toolkit here.
  2. Go to x:\Dell\Toolkit\Tools, where x is your primary hard disk drive.
  3. Copy the file BMCCFG.exe to a bootable floppy disk.
  4. Start the server from the bootable floppy disk.
  5. At the command prompt, type bmcc - clearsel, and then press Enter.
    The message "Clearing SEL" will display while the log clears.
1950, 2900, 2950, DP500, DP600, NF500, NF600
Use the BMC/BIOS to clear the ESM log:
  1. To open the BMC menu, press the Control + Ekeys during POST.
  2. From the list, select System Event Log, and then press Enter.
  3. Select Clear System Event Log, and then pressEnter.

Power is 2950 i912 sel full


Namrata_stha,

The I912 error is referring to the System Event Log is full of events and because of this is unable to log anymore. You must clear the log in order for the Server Management controller to log any more events. Now depending on the OS installed there are different ways to clear it. If Windows Server 2k8 you would use this command - wevtutil el ' foreach { wevtutil cl $_ }
Where with Server 2003 you can go tot he Event viewer and clear it.

Let me know if this helps.

Sel full 1912 error


Hello,

You will get the "Sel Full 1912 error" on your server when the system event log is full and unable to record further events. You must clear the event log before the error will cancel. Boot your system into the BIOS/CMOS, locate the system logs and select clear log, reboot your system. Once the system is back up, I would go into the admin task folder and make sure the logs are clear there as well.

Good Luck.

I set shutdown time at 10 pm by using crontab but server shutdown at 1800 or 6 pm . I am using LINUX CentOS


Hi
Try using ttps://launchpad.net/gpoweroff also the other way to set auto shut down is

Also another way is

A simpler way is to add the appropriate shutdown command to the /etc/profile file (as root):
Open a terminal window and su to root:
[user@localhost ~]$ su
Password: (enter root password here)

This example will open /etc/profile in the kate text editor:
[root@localhost user] # kate /etc/profile
Add the following command to the end of the file:
shutdown -h hh:mm
Replace hh:mm with the time at which you want the computer to shutdown automatically each day
The -h option tells shutdown to turn the
computer off (halt).
For more information on the shutdown
command open a terminal window and enter:
man shutdown
Remember, the man command is your friend.
With it you can get information on nearly
any command available in your Linux system

02A2: BMC System Event Log(SEL) Full


In HP prolliant server sets, setup also logs system events. This error is due to that log. Enter setup, trace log and clear all events.

Dell server poweredge 1800 frequently shutdown


is there an error message that appears? can you check error logs? I need more information to be able to help you. I would first try to blow dust out of the fans, as it may be over heating, another possibility is that there is software on the machine that is causing it to shut down.
