Hello again everyone.
I have a question and I am not really sure how to ask, so I'll describe the scenario.
I have some IBM Iseries 7.5 software to install on several servers.  It installed fine on all but one.  When I do the install, it usually prompts for a reboot before the installation runs.  Reboot the server and install runs fine.

I have this one server that keeps prompting for a reboot, no matter how many times it is rebooted.  This is a development box, I am thinking that some developer had worked on the server and did an install that is hung or making the server think it needs a reboot to complete the previous install before another install can be run.

How can I go about identifying what is causing this issue?

It should be posting something to the log files in the warnings or events that would give you someplace to start.
