I'm running the example in OpenIPMI manual and after I
see the log for all entities and sensors, I get the
following error:

EINF: (0.20)(sel)sel.c(handle_sel_data): IPMI error
from SEL fetch: c0

The C0 error code indicates that MC is busy, however I
have no other IPMI program running on my box. BTW
ipmitool and ipmiutil don't report such error and work
fine.

I'm using a P8SC8 SuperMicro motherboard with it's
corresponding IPMI controller.

Regards
Amir

    Is it not working or just reporting this log occasionally?
    The SEL fetch is generally retried periodically, so if you
    get this once in a while it is probably not a big issue.
    The EINF logs are just informational. If you get it every
    10 seconds then it's a bigger issue.

    It's reporting error once I run the program and after that everytime there's a change in sensory information I get the following error:

    (0.20)(sel)sel.c(handle_sel_data): Received a short SEL data.
