So you are left with a hard task of diagnose and find what makes the server panic

You do know how I suppose?

Check /var/tombstones/......

It will indicate if the panic is CPU, Memory or whatever is causing your
reboots. This should be shipped back to HP for analysis.

SmilieThere is no such file /var/tombstones. Please also find the attachment.

/var/tombstones is a directory...
I see no attachments...
What is your knowledge of HP-UX? Do you have the support plus CD ? (latest would be Dec 2001), I see no other alternative than to use q4 debugger. Is there nothing in /var/adm/syslog/syslog.log? have you tried to use stm?

The text file /var/tombstones/ts99 contains basic information about the current crash.
Also read in detail:
(however a bad crash can be missing from syslog).

Also look at what is in directory:
Beware that multiple crashes can fill the /var partition which can cause a situation more serious than the original fault. Be prepared to clean old crashes from this directory.

Basic advice is to seek advice from HP (or if you have not got a HP maintenance contract, try the HP ITRC board). First impressions are that you have a hardware fault. As others advise the "stm" utilities will help diagnose the fault but you will need guidance to run them and interpret the results.

Addendum: I notice that this is an antique version of HP-UX (10.20) and a two-user licence. This imples some sort of old HP workstation. Don't forget to mention exactly what hardware you have and cut/paste any relevant error messages from /usr/adm/syslog exactly as they appear.

Addendum: Please post the output from a basic hardware inventory:
ioscan -fn
