SUMMARY : E 250 Rebooting randomly

Date: Thu Dec 23 1999 - 12:58:15 CST

Hi! Long time no summary..

Well, It's been a difficult solution.. I did a number of things.

1. Made sure that my PC acting as a terminal wasn't going into
powersave mode.

2. Made sure that powerd wasn't running, and that the /etc/power.conf
file was setup for NO AUTOSHUTDOWN... why a server would have
that as part of a default install to have it shutdown was beyond me.

3. Plugged unit into a UPS

4. Got a better UPS.

5. Installed all patches

ANd yet the machine still rebooted constantly.. After far too much complaining,
I finally had SunService come out, and they did a series of test, and resetted
everything.. Well.. The system is now actually still up! After 6 days.. So,
the problem is solved.

Thanks to all who gave me their suggestions!
