SUMMARY: E 250 Rebooting randomly

Date: Fri Feb 11 2000 - 12:05:26 CST

It feels like spring cleaning.,.. Here is my summary for a problem
I had back late November. THis one also took a very long time
to get resolved..

I put all relevant patches onto this machine, up-revving it to the most
recent set.. Still rebooted.. no messages nothing.. I had a service
call in, and it took freaking out to get someone from Sun to believe
that it had to be a hardware issue. I had cloned the disk and used
that as root disks for two other machines..I had also disabled the
powerd stuff, and added some extra envirctl patches as well.

Finally, about a month later, I did get one of our local Sun hardware
people to come out. He came and reseated everything, and moved
one of the CPUs. I refused to close the call until the machine had
stayed up for at least a few weeks.. That wasn't until early January.

The machine has been stable since then.. and all is well.. with that
