Add cmdlet Clear-SystemEventLog

Sometimes it happens that the System Event Log (SEL) from an ESXi gets full.

So the administrator have to log into the webclient to reset the SEL in the Hardware Status tab.

The only alternative way is to use a SSH session to esxi and use this command "localcli hardware ipmi sel clear". But it´s hard to automate and not really comfortable.


Would be great to have a cmdlet to do this task!

    Until this is implemented in PowerCLI natively, check out this function that I wrote.
