When i put on my CE hat i erase all errors (first i take a picture for my
logs). Otherwise when i have to walk a client or another CE thru the
problem determination i have to read each and every one to see if it's
current or not...
At the very least you should "close" them if you dont want to delete them.
Don't bother turning the light off right now, when the CE stops the cache
to replace the battery it will turn on again...

Thanks for the detail Rob.

No HMC.

Three entries. Two related to previously failed and replaced disk drive.
Third is cache battery. That is scheduled for next week.

Did not see the yellow light las week. Due to not being in the computer
room. System had already alerted IBM. I was not sure if the light was
indicating a new problem.

Interesting, maybe, is that CE used WRKPRB to close and delete the issue
with the failed disk drive, so no entries remained. But, entries remain in
SST.

Since you have HMC, this might require digging through mothballs - Should
CE have used SST to close and delete disk drive problem, or are both
methods required?

I tried a different function this morning to look at logs with SST.
Obviously wrong menu option.

Nice to learn stuff.

Others have made proper suggestions but I'll try to put the details on it
in case sysadmin is not your normal job title.

First of all, I'll assume that you do not have an HMC managed machine.
Pity, because there's some nice stuff there to deal with this.

On your IBM i do the following:
STRSST
1. Start a service tool
7. Hardware service manager
6. Work with service action log
Change the dates to include from several months ago. I'll often just
change the year. This is what you'll need to deal with. When you clear
all these off appropriately then the lights should go away.

There are a yellow and blue or green lamps lit on the 520 control panel.
Last week, battery warning was sent to IBM.

No messages on QSYSOPR. WRKPRB no longer shows the battery warning.

Is the yellow light on because there was a message about battery in
warning
status? Some other reason?

For what little it does now, there does not appear to be a problem.

My wild guess is that a cleanup task cleared the problem entry. Only
panel
functions available were 01 02, 04, and 20. Does this mean no issues
remain and lamp needs to be turned off with SST? CE will change battery
Dec 10.

Or, do I need to look deeper?
