Default server shutdown

Hope someone can help. I have an IBM e server about 3 yrs old. It intermittently shuts down and re-boots for no obvious reason. I have had the ssoftware checked and been advised that it is a hardware problem. We run unix with a Pick database. I could do with some pointers!

many thanks:amazed:

sounds like it could be a heat issue. Do you keep the server in a small space? try opening it, cleaning the dust, especially in the processor fan. Kinda like spring cleaning, Everytime I have delt with rebooting issues, it always results in heat problems. I can see this as a definit possiblility on a server. Servers are configured to keep a very safe temperature, to stop the risk of data loss. Try dusting things out a bit, if it doesn't work, change the heat threshold settings in bios. good luck!
