Re: "dmesg " command - Error Message

You see the contents of the message buffer with normal boot messages (you see the same at console during boot) - I cannot see a problem here.

No need to worry about - this is normal.

Hope this helps!

Re: "dmesg " command - Error Message

No "error" messages there - it is all normal boot process output.

Better to look at syslog.log for timestamped info.

Re: "dmesg " command - Error Message

no problems are visible here, May be, you can elaborate further if you are facing any issues in server.

Re: "dmesg " command - Error Message

This is a normal boot, the problem begins when you run dmesg and this isn't all you see, or you run it that the boot area is gone because the list of items it wants you to be aware of is so long that the top of the output is spooled off. Like other have said to you, check your syslog as a more reliable method of seeing errors and time they occur.
