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 voilá – the machine came up and everything worked.


What the hell was that? :-( Any hints? (no there is nothing of interest in the system event logs)
