It's a perc3di as well, funny thing is I never had this problem and I
suspect its due to upgrading the system. I was thinking that this might be
an ongoing thing as well but hopefully not. I will have to keep monitoring
it for now.

What kind of RAID card is in the system?  I have experienced the same
exact symptoms with a 2450 + PERC3di.  Just would freeze up essentially
and need to rebooted after which everything would work fine for a
while.  This was no way to run a server so I pulled the PERC and am
just usin the on-board SCSI + software RAID and everyhing is working
great now.

Did give the PERC3 a fighting chance though with latest BIOS, drivers,
etc... nothing seemed to help.
