Can you hook up a serial console and get some output that way?
Unfortunately, I cannot get any logs on this issue at this time as we have already downgraded the server back to RHEL 5.4.
Is there a way that you could work with HP on addressing this issue?
It's possible -- but it would be best for you to obtain a boot log from your system and send it to us.
I understand but we have reverted the system back to previous release of RHEL. Hence there are no logs. On hind side, I should have captured the dmesg. But again the system would freeze giving me no oppurtunity to get any logs. If we do load another server with RHEL 6, I will make sure to capture the logs and send them to you. In the meantime, please work with HP.
This issue has been proposed when we are only considering blocker
issues in the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. It has
been denied for the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release.
** If you would still like this issue considered for the current
release, ask your support representative to file as a blocker on
your behalf. Otherwise ask that it be considered for the next
Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. **
We reloaded one of our servers with the latest RHEL 6 Beta 2 release. We noticed the kernel crash. Here is the log from the crash report:

I tried to report this via automatic bug reporting but could not because debuginfo-install kernel could not install the kernel-debuginfo package.

Hi -- request a new BIOS from HP.
This is a BIOS issue, not a software issue.
Reporter should request an updated BIOS from HP to resolve the issue.
