DL580 G4's Running SLES9 Hang Intermittently

We have 11 of these in three SG clusters, each with 32GB of RAM, mirrored 72GB boot drives, dual Emulex FC SAN cards, and dual NC360T dual port PCI GBE cards.

Every so often one of them will hang hard. Console is dead, iLo console dead, cannot ssh or telnet. One odd thing is that SG doesn't fail over any packages, so at least one of the dual heartbeat LANS must still be up.

This has been reported to HP but any help here would be greatly appreciated.

If possible, pull the system out of the cluster with the cmhaltnode command.

Hardware diagnosis is required.

We have done so - HP is actually inventorying the hardware. At this point everyone's at a loss. As noted, we have the problem on more than one of the servers/clusters.
