Nope. We have a Compaq Proliant 3000 with 5 C/CON 16 porst Digi Boards. We ran a compaq system health monitor and it shows that one of our Cons was bad. So I moved it to the bottom of the rack and shuffled all the users up. Also, it looks like the memory, the NIC and the digi board drivers all share this same IRQ for some reason. We also, found that Compaq recommends having the memory arranged in a certain order. So we re-seated the mem in the recommended spots. And thus far we haven't had a problem. Its been a little over a week now and no lock ups. Smilie

You may want to try re-seating your memory, adn re-installing the driver software for the CONS and see what that does. Smilie
