Trouble with RHEL4 on the HP ProLiant DL360

We have a problem with the Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES 4
Update 5 system installed on the Hewlett-Packard ProLiant
DL360 server. The system stops to respond without any

Network services are not responding in proper way. For example, it is possible to telnet to port 22, but it's
impossible to log in to the system using ssh. Ssh just
ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host

and exits. The same situation is with other network
services - it is impossible to use them, but something
responds on the port. Also it is impossible to log
in using tty terminal - system doesn't respond after
entering user name.

Meanwhile the system responds to ping requests.
It happens once two weeks.

We use the kernel:

# cat /proc/version

Linux version 2.6.9-55.0.9.ELsmp ( (gcc version 3.4.6 20060404 (Red Hat 3.4.6-8)) #1 SMP Tue Sep 25 02:17:24 EDT 2007.

Log reports at the time of the stop:
