I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.
