I have c7000 Blade Enclosure and some BL460cG1 and BL460cG6 blade servers.
Servers have ESX 4 installed without HP Management Agents on them.
Looking through ILO on IML log of server I found some errors showing predictive failure of drives. I replaced drives that were in predictive failure state and they are now OK. The problem is that failures in log are not marked repaired.
I'm trying to mark some items repaired but only thing that I can do is go to ILO web management and clear whole IML log. Does anyone knows how to mark all entries repaired insted of cleaning IML log?

This has been an irritation for me as well.
The capability to mark events as repaired in the IML was apparently a new feature introduced with the ILO3's (HP types please correct me if I'm wrong on that). Blades (and towers and rackmounts, for that matter) before the G7's all had ILO2's.
ILO2's (and earlier) you had to clear the IML entirely, and frankly, sometimes I like to have the history.

I checked on one of my BL460cG7 servers that has ILO3.
Same situation. Unable to mark as read.
But on BL460cGen8 that has ILO4, I was able to mark some items as read.
Seems like it's by design. ;)

On a G7 (ILO3) I should think you should be able to mark IML events repaired. I can on every ILO3 we have (and that's in the hundreds).
Check the rights you assigned the user you're logging in as and verify the firmware level of the ILO3.

It is possible to mark a IML entry as repaired from the host OS with hplog/hpasmcli like so
# show log entry numbers hplog -v # mark entry number as repaired hpasmcli -s "REPAIR IML 30"
Tested on a Linux server with iLO2.
