Hmmm.  I just thought of something.
Are there any ipmi-related apps that are doing SetSelTime on this
That could cause problems like this if used indiscriminately.  That
command should generally be used once per OS boot, if at all.

This needs more information.
A raw dump of the SEL would help to determine whether the problem is in
the freeipmi interpretation or a problem on the server.
To get a raw dump of the SEL:
    ipmiutil sel -r  >sel.raw
    ipmitool sel writeraw sel.raw
    (not sure of how to do this with freeipmi)

If this record has event data 1 == 0x80, then "System Reconfigured" is a
good interpretation.
If it is interpreted correctly, then the SEL records surrounding this
event need to be reviewed. 
Also, if you got this event, then there may be some ipmi-related
processes running that caused it (output of ps -ef).

I'm sorry, the below question may sound not suitable to the question
above. :)

I just want to revisit this thread as the log "System Reconfigured" is
recurring on IBM x3650. My questions is: Is the text string "System
Reconfigured" the result after interpretation by FreeIPMI? or FreeIPMI
simply reads the BMC-SEL, then display?
