We just purchased another lot of Linux servers from DELL and for the first time we are having serious problems. I installed Red Hat Linux 7.3 shipped with the boxes and upgraded all packages, including the kernel to ver. 2.4.18-18.7. Yesterday one of the boxes crashed (hung). No response from keyboard, mouse or network (ping). This morning I upgraded the kernel to 2.4.18-19.7 on another box (also PE 2650) and it just crashed locking the screen! I've never seen a Linux box die quietly without a reason.
Any hints would be appreciated.
