Causes of System Reboot?

» close window

The Question is:

What are possible causes of an Alpha server rebooting?  If there detail logged
 anywhere as to what may have cause a reboot?

The Answer is :

  The list of things that can cause a reboot is an open-ended set.
  The usual (and best) spot is the console output around the time
  of the reboot -- certain operations normally write log entries,
  but you likely would have already found and seen these entries
  were this a normal case.  In particular, you will want to channel
  console output to a log file or to a printer.
  Please contact your hardware support organization for assistance.
