Description Olivier Fourdan 2008-07-22 14:02:12 UTC
Description of problem: "ipmitool sel list" list entries with the id in hexadecimal, but the "ipmitool sel delete" does not parse hexadecimal values, which cause some confusion. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): ipmitool-1.8.9 How reproducible: 100% reproducible Steps to Reproduce: 1.List SEL entries with # ipmitool sel list 2. Try to delete one of the entries # ipmitool sel delete 0x0100 Actual results: Unable to delete entry 0: Invalid command Expected results: Unable to delete entry 256: Invalid command Additional info: The "Delete SEL command" is not available on all IPMI implementations (thus the need for the "Get SEL Info Command" as defined in the IPMI 2.0 specification that indicates if the delete command is available), but nevertheless "ipmitool sel delete" command should be able to parse hexadecimal values to match the output of "ipmitool sel list". The (very simple) patch attached adds this functionality.
