Since when does this occure? What has been done with this machine?

Boot it in maintenance mode and check the errpt (Error Report) for entries relating to your problem. Also check /etc/inittab or any suspicious entries in /etc/rc.d/init.d or crontab.

If it is a HA/CMP cluster you might want to check the /tmp/hacmp.out for example if any error occurse as event that stops the machine as a result to prevent further problems.

Depends on box. If it is an old box, there could be some kind of key to position at a wrench icon and power it on.
Else could go to SMS and boot from a service CD.
Another option, maybe most comfortable is having a HMC at the system and just start a service profile.
Depends really on what type of hardware setup you have there.

Do you have any error LEDs or code when booting up that show up at least before it reboots? Might be worth a check too.

It can't be that old because otherwise AIX 5.3 wouldn't run on it.

On the other hand you still haven't told us *which* machine it is - how are we supposed to help you when we don't even know the machine type?

Corollary: If you'd want to buy replacement parts for your car, would you ask for "break pads for a '97 Mercedes Benz 240 SL" or rather "break pads for an old car - it's a green one"?

Hello All,

I have run the command errpt -a on my machine.
As I have mentioned machine works for a 1minute and then Shutdown begins.

I have tried to capture the output of the command.
