"Starting Runner ..."

What application do you have that gets started automatically during bootup that might issues this message? You're probably going to have to boot up in single user mode to get a look at things.

Try grepping your startup scripts to see what it might be - grep "Runner" /sbin/init.d/*

Then look through /etc/rc.log (or /etc/rc.log.old) to see if you can find a problem with this application. If you can fix that problem, you'll probably fix your system.

Re: OS not booting

there is no application which starts automatically.System was running without any issues but after a reboot this issue came up. No changes were made to the system

Re: OS not booting

hi,

sometimes, when the server have long uptime,

it could be happen, that hw will stuck, without

any reason, them restart, and the system hase

problem, for example sam HW part is corrupted

or not fully functional.

mikap

try to boot to single user mode,

backup your OLDsyslog.log, check the rc.log*

as pete mentioned, check HW problems.

Re: OS not booting

Hi,

Did you tried with single user ?
Is it booting succesfully in single user if yes the boot your machine into single user then try to come into multiuser.

after booting in single user give this command to multiuser

#init 3

Re: OS not booting

Hello,

I think runner is part of ISEE software. Try to disable ISEE client at startup. I think there was an option to disable runner at startup in the ISEE configuration file.

Re: OS not booting

Hi,

Try to boot server in single user mode , if successfull then use #init3 for multiuser mode.

Re: OS not booting

If you had simply run the "grep Runner /sbin/init.d/*" command that I suggested, you would have found the /sbin/init.d/runner script, which you could have looked at and determined that it is ISEE related.

If you had gone one step further and check your rc log files, you would have found the following entry:

Start Runner
Output from "/sbin/rc2.d/S606runner start":
----------------------------

Hopefully there is some more information available in your case.
