Hello,

 

I have a File Server that has been rebooting intermittently and I cannot figure out what seems to be the problem. I have checked the Logs and cannot find anything. This started happening after I unplugged the file server, took the top cover off and dusted it off. 

 

The Specs are

NORCO RPC-4224

SUPERMICRO MBD-X9DRI-F-O

2 X Intel Xeon E5-2670v2

8 x 4GB Sticks (32GB RAM)

HP H220 HBA

6x HGST 4TB NAS

Debian Wheezy

 

When I put it together originally, I did run a memtest and made sure it passed 6 times.

 

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

I would start by checking temperature, maybe you blocked a fan by accident. It could also be a loose cable, which is very hard to diagnose :P

Wow! Those are some crazy specs for just a file server!

 

As myrti suggested, check all cabling and such for loose connections, and monitor temperatures of CPU. If you have a PSU tester check to make sure your PSU is putting out the correct amount of power as well and has no problems there.

Checked to make sure all of the cables are securely fastened, Temps for the cpus are 38-41 for both. Used a PSU Tester and everything passed, Although it doesn't check for any ripples.

How intermittently is this happening? Once a day? Once a month? Once an hour?

Could it be your power that's dying? Not the PC?
