- could be a hardware problem? does the system pass hardware test like memtest86
( http://www.memtest86.com ), burncpu ( http://users.ev1.net/~redelm/ ) .... ?
- you try to patch the machine BIOS
- you try to patch the Mylex RAID bios
Comment 2 Pavel 2003-03-03 03:25:43 EST
Test 4 x burnP6 is running one hour, nothing.
Processor 1 Temp     | ok           |   42.00 | Celsius
Processor 2 Temp     | ok           |   42.00 | Celsius
All others test and suggestions require phisical access to console. I can't do it.
Thanks, may be we make a decision to exchange server to new.
