My box just stops

Postby justdave » Fri Jun 25, 2010 8:48 am

I've had my box working for many years.

I just moved it from an enclosed cabinet to a closet.

It just stops working. No ssh, no web nothing.

I will attach a report from the time that i reset it.

The number one reason that any Linux machine completely locks up is from disk or file system corruption. I would recommend un-mounting your extra drives and partitions and running e2fsck on them to make sure there are no issues with the file system. If that doesn't show anything then I would leave the machine set on screen 3 to watch the logs and see what the last logs are the system displays. Most likely it will show a specific drive as the culprit.

If none of that is the problem then especially with machines that have ran fine for years I would make absolutely certain the processor fan is running and clean and the power supply fan as well. I would then remove all of the cards and re-seat them in there slots because moving can sometimes flex them loose.
If you are afraid that you might make a mistake. The chances are high that you will never learn anything.
