You can export HP’s IML logs via PowerShell. Execute PowerShell console with Administrative privileges and run:

$Hostname = $env:COMPUTERNAME
&"C:\Program Files\Compaq\Cpqimlv\cpqimlv.exe" /export:C:\test.iml /m:$Hostname
$Logs = Get-Content "C:\test.iml" | Select-String Critical,Caution
Foreach ($Log in $Logs)
{
	$ErrorDesc = $Log.Line.Split('"')[1]
	if ($ErrorDesc)
	{
		$ErrorType = $Log.Line.Split(",")[-4]
		$ErrorDate = $Log.Line.Split(",")[-1]
	}
 
	if ($ErrorType -eq "Critical")
	{
		Write-Host "Description: $ErrorDesc" -ForegroundColor Red
		Write-Host "Type: $ErrorType" -ForegroundColor Red
		Write-Host "Date: $ErrorDate" -ForegroundColor Red
		Write-Host " "
	}
	else
	{
		Write-Host "Description: $ErrorDesc" -ForegroundColor Yellow
		Write-Host "Type: $ErrorType" -ForegroundColor Yellow
		Write-Host "Date: $ErrorDate" -ForegroundColor Yellow
		Write-Host " "
	}
}

You can also write them into event viewer after parsing. If you need to get specific date, change script like this:

1
2
3
4
5
6
7
$Date = Get-Date
$Day = $Date.Day
$Month = $Date.Month
$Year = $Date.Year
$Hostname = $env:COMPUTERNAME
&"C:\Program Files\Compaq\Cpqimlv\cpqimlv.exe" /export:C:\test.iml /m:$Hostname
$Logs = Get-Content "C:\test.iml" | Select-String Critical,Caution | Select-String $Month/$Day/$Year

So you can always get new Critical and Caution logs.
