hey , having some problems here. both selview and syscfg from intel hang up in server 2008 r2, I have 6 machines and it hangs on all of them.

any idea how to fix or is there any other way beside this and ASC to view and clear bmc/bios logs?
Which server board are you using? Did you get the IPMI driver installed properly? (run install.cmd under InstallationEM64T folder, and you should see "Intel Intelligent Management Bus Driver V13.9" in device manager)
That is a strange one. Never had any issues with SELVIEW or SYSCFG loading.
They both use the IMBDVR so my guess would be that the driver did not get installed correctly somehow,
Try a driver reinstall by opening a command window and navagating to C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\S5500_Windows_4_2\Windows_SYSCFG_V501_B25\InstallationEM64T
then run C:\Users\Administrator\Desktop\S5500_Windows_4_2\Windows_SYSCFG_V501_B25\InstallationEM64T\ Install.cmd \
(Don't forget the slash at the end to tell it the files are in this directory)
extract to USB key
reboot system & press F6 for boot menu
mount USB fob (FS0: most likley)
run SELVIEW from fob.
Yes, any IPMI tool can be configured to access and clear the SEL log, but it is a lot more work to explain than the first 2 options.
hmz, syscfg now works.
the problem is with selview, because when I try to install the driver I get:
"MSIPMI Driver detected. Skipping IMBDRV installation"
so my guess is that ms somehow installed some generic driver that isn't working very well the problem is I fail to find the ms name for it to uninstall ?
