what happened last night…

I really really hate those moments. This morning around 0100 AM the server that hosts schrankmonster and some more websites crashed after more than 200 days of flawless operation. I arrived at the server room at around 2 and rebooted the machine – but it did not boot – instead it kept rebooting and rebooting…

I turned it off and decided to come back after some hours of sleep with fresh diagnose software and a just-in-case operating system install cd…

Well I turned the machine on, booted into memtest86 and no errors were found… I rebooted and voilรก – the machine came up and everything worked.

What the hell was that? ๐Ÿ™ Any hints? (no there is nothing of interest in the system event logs)

    stupid boy! What’s the point in having another operating system when the hardware decides to take an outtime…. It’s not as if the 200 days of operation before the crash weren’t just enough time to show that it’s just working as designed.
