Below is my output of the "last" command.

root pts/0 wdbssts012.ihess Fri Apr 3 18:18 - 19:44 (01:26)
root tty1 Fri Apr 3 17:53 - down (02:09)
reboot system boot 2.4.21-47.0.1.EL Fri Apr 3 17:34 (02:28)
root pts/1 wdbssts014.ihess Fri Apr 3 15:51 - crash (01:43)
root pts/0 tntssgi002.ihess Fri Apr 3 15:44 - 16:52 (01:08)

As per this output, does it mean my ESX crashed on 3 April at 15:51 server local time and was rebooted again at 17:34.

An early response will be grately appreciated.


Thanks

well.. almost..

root pts/1 wdbssts014.ihess Fri Apr 3 15:51 - crash (01:43)
This line means that root logged in from wdbssts014  at 15:51 and was logged on for 1 hours and 43 minutes.

And at that time the system was rebooted:
reboot system boot 2.4.21-47.0.1.EL Fri Apr 3 17:34 (02:28)
