System is rebooting

Postby stevenih » 2007/10/27 20:26:32

Hi,

We have one server with CentOS 4, kernel version kernel-2.6.9-42.0.10.EL.
For last 8 days, it is rebooting every single and in specific time period. Here are the logs on this : root@server1 [/home]# last | grep reboot
reboot system boot 2.6.9-42.0.10.EL Fri Oct 26 23:44 (03:20)

reboot system boot 2.6.9-42.0.10.EL Wed Oct 10 07:44 (13+08:14)

Today we have upgraded the kernel to versoin 2.6.9-55.0.9.EL to resolve this issue and still we are unsure if it will resolve it so we want to know what can be done to identify the condition the kernel sees that causes it to iniate the reboot command.

Please advise.

Thanks.

Is your issue still happening? If so, provide details from /var/log/messages from around the time of reboot for us to look at, please.
