Trigger for System Reboot? (restart)

» close window

The Question is:

My server has been "crashing?" nightly.  It
comes right up everytime.  I am wondering about
the dec event entry that states a Cold Start..
could this be a power supply problem.  The
unit is hooked to a UPS and it didnt indicate
any type of power loss???

The Answer is :

  Please contact your hardware service organization for assistance
  in determining the trigger for this event.  You will probably be
  asked to maintain and to review the console output from around the
  trigger for the system bootstrap -- the console can log messages
  indicating the particulars of the event.  You may also be asked to
  set the system console to restart upon halt, as various operations
  which would otherwise not be logged can then be written out as part
  of a system crashdump.
  You will need to involve your hardware service organization in this.
  This could, of course, be the result of hardware or a software problem.
