Hi,

Has anyone encounter problem with the Sun server Enterprise 3500 with the OS (Solaris 5.6) crash and rebooted by itself?

The other day I was transfering some data files from another system through the network (3 or more concurrent transfer). However, the system would produce some kernel and dump errors in the console. Everything froze and it automatically rebooted.

This has not only happen during files transfer (twice at least with the last few days) , it also happens when I try to startup some application. Sounded like harddisk problem but some expert scanned and claimed other wise.

Has anyone encountered this or has any input regarding the case above?

Thanks,
Shawn

i would venture a guess as to a cpu or memory problem, esp when it happens randomly.  check /var/adm/messages as otetelisanu suggests, also, run /usr/platform/sun4u/sbin/prtdiag to see if the prom is reporting any errors.

Hi,
/usr/platform/sun4u/sbin/prtdiag has revealed no error in the harddisk except the CD-ROM which I guess is normal. And this may also be related to the bug report in Solaris website. Anyway thanks.
