Supermicro servers (3)have been shutting down in a sense. Not all at once but one here and another there every week or so and this week its happened a 3 times. Backups were not running and no other outside apps were interfacing with it besides Webapp. There is no video, mouse and keyboard do not work, no network, cannot RDP to the servers, cannot ping, and the only the power light is on at the front panel. They unresponsive to anything! I have looked at the event logs and dont see any thing there. I have to hard boot them to and once I do that they seem fine for another couple of days. I just dont know how else to figure out whats going on. Has anyone experienced this with any other servers?
At first I thought it was KVM so I removed kvm and now using mouse and keyboard. No change

1) Check temperatires of CPU, fan speed and other overheating parts.

MBM and SpeedFAN may help as any utulities for the motherboard


2) Check for other hardware failures, RAM, hard drives.

Heat is most likely the cause.


I hope this helps !
