Server rebooting itself

By zaffi ·
We have a HP Netserver E45 that keeps on rebooting itself. it is connected in UPS along with other servers. I have switched the sockets in UPS. the frequency of rebooting has gone down, but it still reboots about once to everyother day. Other servers are not having any problem.

What should I look to see why this server is rebooting itself. Server is runnig Novell 3.12.


Open to suggestions on what to check

Intel has put out an alert about a chip on their MB call Memory Translator Hub.
If your machine was bought after Nov/99 check out Intel's site @

Good Luck!

Check to make sure the server is not abending and rebooting. Though rare, it can happen if multiple processor errors are detected, or other hardware "messages" are received. Check BIOS levels on all components that have them. If you have similar servers that do not do this, hardware is where I would look first, especially NIC and memory. Good Luck!!

If the above don't work, you disable any power managemnt settings in the bios.

I am not very familiar with Novel, but ... there should be a 'log' (or maybe 'error')file that will tell you what is initiating the shutdown ( and/or reboot) ... power loss or maybe something else. That should (hopefully) give you someplace to start looking.
