DL380 G2 running Netware 5.1 freezes

This has happened on one particular server three or four times in the last few months. The server just stops responding although it does not abend. It just will not respond until you switch it off and on. The server uses a Smart 5300 array controller and the on board gig nic. I'm a bit concerned that I can't think of any way to troubleshoot this. A big problem is that I can't have any downtime to test and I can't recreate the problem - it just happens.

Whenever you have a little downtime please update the system bios from the following link:

Also please update the firmware of SA5300 as well. Here is the link for all the software updates for your server:
