Hello, I am having a problem with my PowerEdge server. The system will freeze at random times. When it does freeze I cannot send or receive email, I cannot ssh to the box, I cannot do anything from the console, but I can ping it. I have had a top running and when the machine freezes the CPU's are 99-100% idle and the top will even continue to update, but I cannot do anything until I hard boot the system. The freezes are not reproducible and don't occur after any specific amount of time. Sometimes I can go two months between problems and sometimes it is one day. This server is only providing email services. Here are the details of my system:
Dual 2Ghz CPUs
1 GB RAM
RedHat 7.3 (kernel 2.4.18-19.7.xsmp)
Thanks for any help you can give me.
