Had the same thing. Open a ticket with VMware and they will show you how to make it go away
I don't think that is really the solution. If you run that ipmi command and look at the #3 sensor, it also affects a LOM and CPU#2. Disabling that sensor to mask the alert in VC is also going to do the same for the other hardware under sensor #3.
Not sure you want to hide other hardware alerts, do you?
yeah I´ve seen it, but what choice do I have?
Till now, I´ve had never a problem with the servers in any kind.
So I hope, that Vmware will fix it soon, so that I can reenable sensor 3.
The KB is marked as workaround and not a solution until a patch comes available.
For sure i would like to see all green within the vSphere GUI.... but to be honest... who cares about HW monitoring trough ESX/vCenter? In 9 out of 10 your VCSA is unable to send E-Mails or admin havent it configured right.
You have iLO,iDRAC,IRMC around which informs about faulty HW.
