When attempting to resolve issues with your compute node, the best practice is to begin with the event log of the application that is managing the compute node.

  • If you are managing the compute node from the Lenovo XClarity Administrator, begin with the Lenovo XClarity Administrator event log.

  • If you are using some other management application, begin with the Lenovo XClarity Controller event log.

The event log contains compute node hardware events that are recorded by the Lenovo XClarity Controller or by UEFI. In addition, events can be generated when you perform diagnostic testing on hard drives or memory through the Lenovo XClarity Provisioning Manager (although these events are not stored in the event log).

Use this section to view the events that can be generated by Lenovo XClarity Controller, UEFI, or the Lenovo XClarity Provisioning Manager. For each event, a user action is available to help you understand what must be done to resolve the issue.
