Server Re-boot

 

Server Re-boot

For the past two weeks our newly integrated RX-2660 running 11i v3 will shutdown properly in order to perform nightly back-ups using cron. However, on Friday May 7, 2010, Thursday May 13, 2010 and Friday May 14, 2010 the system did not automatically reboot as the script requires, but had to be power cycled from the ilo.

Any thoughts, thank you in advance.

Any related logs (cron/syslog/etc...)?

Hope this helps!

Re: Server Re-boot

Hi:

Have a look at your '/etc/rc.log*' files for hints. If you have a database (like Oracle) that requires shutdown, it might have been waiting for a transaction to finish.

Shutdown using cron, or perform nightly
back-ups using cron, or what?

How does one perform a back-up on a system
when it's shut down? And how shut-down is
it, exactly?

That would be the script which only you and
the psychics here can see?

Why power-cycled? What state was it in?

Perhaps my brain is slowing in my dotage, but
who's supposed to be restarting this
shut-down system, and how?

Re: Server Re-boot

Does the system shutdown fully?
