Re: ML350 G3 issue

127.0.0.1 is so called loopback interface, so given error suggest you are really in trouble.

Did you try to boot it from e.g. a bootable OS installation CD? If it refusues to boot I would gues it is a hardware error. Can you have a look inside the server & check whether any of diagnostic LEDs is lit?

Re: ML350 G3 issue

I've seen this loopback error. (Smartstart seems to be driven by a local web server on top of linux so the Smartstart browser would obviously point back inwards to itself, hence 127.0.0.1)

Are you using the correct version of Smartstart. Try Smartstart 7.51 or 7.4 which should work OK.

Does the server hang ie, does the mouse freeze ? This would imply a hardware problem.

If only Domino stops responding then this would imply software or OS.

Can you start the server with Domino disabled ? run it for a while and see what happens.
