Resetting ESM logs via SNMP set

I see a response a couple years back on this list that OMSA included
"extra security features" designed to block SNMP Set commands to OMSA
that didn't come from Dell Applications. In the interest of installing
as little unecessary software as possible (mostly to simplify
maintenance and reduce compatability testing) the omsa CLI is not
installed on our systems.
Are SNMP Set commands still restricted in this way? If they are not,
is there a way to reset the ESM log via SNMP sets? Finally, if there
is, which OID(s) are appropriate and what value is appropriate to set to
clear the entry?
We have a 1750 that filled its ESM logs with spurious ambient temp.
warnings before a bios update was applied. Since the ESM logs don't
seem to loop and overwrite, further warning conditions can't be logged.
