Hardware, and are you running on certified equipment on the HCL ?

Can you reproduce the fault ?

Or is this just a one off failure ?

any hardware change ?

check CPU, fans and heatsinks, check and test memory.

Ensure latest firmware is in use on the server, and it's on the HCL.

Also, is this using an OEM version from  hitachi if applicable.
