Hi

I have a HP Proliant DL380 G5 server which is running Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 update 5. The server freezes about once every month or so and we cannot do anything but power cycle. It works OK for about another month or so and hangs again. The message logs do not provide any useful information. It is also not possible to run any sysrq commands as the server needs to be started up(immediately) to run production.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Do you regularly run yum update? This might fix any errors caused by misbehaving software. Otherwise I recommend rebooting the server regularly before the freeze happens.

Do I need to register with Red Hat to get Yum update? Is it possible to get an equivalent from CentOS?

Yes, to get updates from RH you need to be registered. With CentOS yum works without restrictions.
