DL160 Random Restarts

I have a DL160 with Server 2019 on it, all up top date. All firmware is up to date (as of last week) across iLo, BIOS, IE, NIC, Drives etc.

For some reason the server will just restart at random times - usually 5-7 day intervals. There is nothing in th any of the windows logs (just the previous shurdown was unexpected at restart) & no dump files are created.

In the ilo log, immediately before the restart is "Host REST Login: " & "Host REST Logout"

 

There is nothing in the iML the hardware states in the iLo are all OK, there is no power event & there is no thermal issue.

Hello,

 

Please do ensure that the BIOS is updated to the latest.

 

Also, please do modify the below changes in the BIOS.

 

• Reboot the server and tap F9 to get into System Utilities (BIOS)  

• Select System Configuration  

• Select BIOS/Platform Configuration (RBSU) 

• Select Workload Profile > Hit the enter key on the drop-down menu that’s visible on the right hand side 

• Chose Virtualization – Max Performance   

• Select F10 – Save at the bottom for the settings to be saved.  

• Reboot the server

Re: DL160 Random Restarts

Sorry abvout the delay in responding, Ive just been leaving things to see what happen

Ive done that and set the workload profile to Virtualization max Performance, and its made no difference, it still randomly shuts down and restarts around about every 7 days
