IPMI reporting memory errors, logging now disabled...

We had a similar though not identical memory problem on one of our
6600's.  The only way to re-enable logging was to clear the log, though
I was able to save the contents before clearing each time to retain the
history.
 
Cheers,

omsa does not run on the 1425's.  If all I need to do is clear the logs
that I can do via a ipmi command.  I'd prefer not though and just
re-enable the logging so I have a running record of the issue to send to
support.

OMSA should show you the DIMM details, and will also allow you to clear
the log (and thus re-enable logging)

Ok I'm figuring I have a bad memory Dim.  But I need to know if this was
a one time event or still continuing.  So how do I re-enable logging?
Also is there a way to determine which Dim was causing this error so I
can just replace it...  It is a Production server so I can't take it
down for hours to run memtest86 on it.
