RedHat NMI -reboot


I have a DL380 server running Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 4 (Nahant Update 5). It runs just fine untill I installed HP ProLiant Support Pack - hphealth.

When the hphealth service is running, my server reboots several times per day. If I shutdown the hphealth service my server runs with any problems.

Is it possible to configure hphealth to not reboot my server, when a NMI is recived?

When I check my logs the /var/log/messages says:

kernel: Uhhuh. NMI received. Dazed and confused, but trying to continue
kernel: You probably have a hardware problem with your RAM chips
hpasmd[9574]: CRITICAL: hpasmd: An Unrecoverable System Error (NMI) has occured
shutdown: shutting down for system reboot
init: Switching to runlevel: 6

And Yes I have run diagnostics on my hardware and it did not find anything suspicious.
