Server Rebooting Itself

By pmullan ·
I have a Dell PowerEdge 2400 Server at work. I have loaded Novell Netware 5.1 on it. The server has been functioning ok since I put in the Dell(approx. 6 months). I recently installed Novell SP3 for Netware 5.1 on it. On Tuesday night 08/28/01 andWednesday night 08/29/01, the server has mysteriously rebooted itself. I have not changed anything on the server since the original setup outside of the SP3 installation. Does anyone know of any reboot issues with NW5.1 SP3 or know of any monitoring software that can be implemented to find out what might be causing the reboot.

Thanks for the help in advance

The service pack may have changed some parameters. What does your Abend.log say ?? ( and your conlog and syslog should be checked )If you are showing abends that may be causing the problem then Open Monitor ... go to ...Server Parameters...go to ..Error Handling ...and check the parameters for Auto Restart After Abend Delay Time and Auto Restart After Abend parameters.

Unless that you are having a power loss or hardware error, some info should be logged to the abend.log file or the vol$err.log
There's also another parameter that can control some reboot parameters: "Auto Restart After Abend Delay Time" and "Auto Restart After Abend parameters".
If your abend.log file is empty, you may be facing a hardware problem.
